Community events this weekend! Jan 17, 2012

by Jessica

Its a busy weekend in Seattle with nonstop openings (including the 2 pieces by Rabih Mroué), so here are a couple additional things to keep you out of the cold and snow:

Whim W’Him
Cast the First Rock in Twenty Twelve
Fri – Sun | Jan 20 – 22 | 8pm (5pm on Sun)

The OtB alum and his company return to the Intiman with new works! Get tickets while you can – this company has sold out tickets ever since they made their world premiere/debut at OtB in 2010.

White Hot
Thu - Sat (except opening weekend) | Jan 20 - Feb 11 | 8pm

OtB alum Tommy Smith (of Transition fame) is also back in the city with a brand new play at West of Lenin. Directed by Braden Abraham and produced by Mark Siano, an all-star cast performs a pitch black psychodrama.

David Schmader
A Short-Term Solution to a Long-Term Problem
Fri – Sat | Jan 20 – Feb 4 | 8pm

To keep the OtB alum train rolling, David Schmader performs his brand new work directed by Matthew Richter at Hugo House. This solo play about the dramatic life upheaval that drove him to spend a decade “living every day like it’s your last!” is a profoundly ridiculous adventure.

Washington Ensemble Theatre
The Callers
Thu - Mon | Jan 13 - Feb 6 | 8pm

World premiere of a new musical featuring phone sex, phone psychics and the love they spread. In a world of tangled phone cords and dial tones everyone's just hoping they don't get a busy signal.

The Bridge Project
Fri - Sun | Jan 20 - 22 | 8pm

Velocity Dance Center has given 4 up-and-coming local choreographers just 3 weeks to make 4 new works. See the results this weekend!
