Is anyone else deeply disappointed with Erin Davie and Emily Padgett singing Who Will Love Me Tomorrow? I know of course with any show a revival will be different, but really ladies. Give us a little more heft and belt. A little head light mix isn’t enjoyable for my listening. Other thoughts?
I went to a party last night. When I got there, there were a decent amount of people there. Slowly people started to disappear in groups of two. A few hours went by and I was sitting on the couch and looked around. I was basically sitting with the losers and uglies. All the cool people had disappeared and were fucking.
So this morning Ann (my voice teacher) and I looked at apartments in Seattle. Most studios start around $800+ a month. Good thing I make a little more than minimum wage working at Starbucks. Totally have this. No, no, not a fucking chance. Whyyy.
I’m at a party and some drunk guy and his friends back up straight into my car and hit it. Mind you my car has been stollen and broken into multiple times. There’s a small little dent and some missing paint. Nothing major or that I really care about. To call it good he gave me $300 in cash. Hello plane ticket to Denver.
So it just kinda dawned on me that the 2013/2014 season of theatre is now over in Seattle. I had the chance to see some really awesome shows, and some not so awesome shows. In all, I am so fortunate and grateful for everything I was able to see.
The Wizard of Oz (Paramount Theatre - National Tour)
Anything Goes (5th Avenue Theatre - National Tour)
Carrie (Balagan Theatre - Regional)
Oliver (5th Avenue Theatre - Regional)
Evita x2 (Paramount Theatre - National Tour)
Spamalot (5th Avenue Theatre - Regional)
Addams Family (Mount Baker Theatre - Non-Equity National Tour)
A Room With A View (5th Avenue Theatre - Tryout/Regional)
Little Shop of Horrors ( 5th Avenue Theatre & ACT - A Contemporary Theatre in their annual collaboration)
Porgy & Bess (5th Avenue Theatre - National Tour)
We Will Rock You (5th Avenue Theatre - National Tour)
The Book of Mormon (Paramount Theatre - National Tour)
Pippin (Music Box Theatre - Broadway)
By far of course my favorite show I saw last season was the National Tour of Evita. Other than Evita, hands down Pippin and Little Shop of Horrors take the cake. My least favorite last season were probably Oliver and Spamalot. And as I’ve said multiple times I’m so lucky to live in a city that is enriched with great theatre. I also can’t express enough that basically every theatre here in Seattle treats students/under 25 people like no other. I proud to say for each show I saw (expect Pippin) I paid no more then $25. Most I only paid $20. I even sat front row for some shows. Four more years of this thank God.
Tomorrow night the 2014-2015 starts at the 5th Avenue Theatre with A Chorus Line opening. I couldn’t be more excited to get this season to started. Here’s to all the shows I’m going to be seeing!
