August 2016 theater

by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

You can still get out and enjoy many free outdoor Shakespeare and other plays in the parks, including Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O (www.seattleshakespeare.org) and GreenStage (http://greenstage.org/sotf/), but here are the productions opening in August.

Girl, Annex Theatre, 8/2-17 (Tue/Wed)
Think of the classic hero's quest: a rousing call to adventure, legendary challenges and temptations, a road full of trials and perils, transformation, atonement, and an ultimate resolution. The heroes here are young women in modern-day Seattle, who must navigate a male-dominated world and fight their battles in a society that imposes constraints on their gender and generation. This devised ensemble adventure asks, what does it take to be a modern heroine?

Blood Wedding, 1-Off Productions, 8/5-26 (various parks)
Rural Spain. A story of love, longing, and bitter revenge. Families in a small village are divided by old grudges, but their children, despite it all, seek love instead of acrimony. 1-Off Productions presents Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca, translated by playwright Caridad Svich. It will be presented with both the translation and Lorca's original dialogue, bi-lingually. The play asks: Is it up to us or fate in deciding who we love? You're invited to join the wedding party! Come ready to dance.

Bonnie and Clyde, Studio 18, 8/5-13 (at 12th Avenue Arts)
Bonnie and Clyde, has not yet been seen in Seattle. This 2012 musical with music by Frank Wildhorn is a classic tale of passion and crime during the Great Depression, set to a rockabilly, blues and gospel score. It opened on Broadway in 2011 for a short but well-received four week run; then was nominated for three Outer Critics Circle Awards and five Drama Desk Awards and received two nominations for the 2012 Tony® Awards.

One Man, Two Guvnors, Sound Theatre Company, 8/11-27 (Armory Theatre)
Welcome to swingin' England. The disarming and doltish Francis Henshall finds himself trapped by farce into working for two bosses who are connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. (Note: special "autism-friendly" show August 20 at 2:00pm.)

Do It for Umma, Theatre Off Jackson, 8/19-27
Here's a second opportunity to see an uproarious new revenge comedy play by local playwright Seayoung Yim. Umma comes back from the dead to task her daughter to revenge her death. From the convenience store through the rest of the small neighborhood, Hannah must follow the trail whispered to her by the demanding ghost. If you missed it at Annex Theatre, here's a rare chance to see it again before it disappears. If you saw it, you know it's good enough to see twice!
