Adapted from Rick Riordan's bestselling YA book, this "electrifying" (Newsday) pop-rock musical finds Percy Jackson in hot water at school -- again. But he's got bigger fish to fry. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life, and he seems to have angered a few of them along the way. Now, young Percy and his newfound friends must race against the hourglass to solve the mystery of Zeus' stolen lightning bolt and set things right on Mount Olympus. Nominated for three Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, The Lightning Thief comes to The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle in a production deemed "worthy of the gods" by TimeOut New York.
The worldwide hit that's so far spawned two movies and a Cher album, Mamma Mia! tells the story of a mother, a daughter, three possible dads and one unforgettable trip down the aisle. Young bride-to-be Sophie wants nothing more than to have her father at her wedding. But there's a small problem: She has no idea which of mom's three former boyfriends might be the guy. So Sophie invites them all to the festivities at her mother's Greek isle taverna, and mayhem ensues. The show's tale of enduring love and friendship features all the beloved hit songs by ABBA, including "Dancing Queen," "S.O.S.," "The Winner Takes It All," "Take a Chance on Me" and, of course, the title tune. Experience all the fun and excitement of Mamma Mia! at Seattle Musical Theatre.
When "High Priestess of Soul" Nina Simone first heard about the tragic bombing deaths of four young girls in an Alabama church in 1963, the singer-songwriter turned to her music as a means of expressing the country's agony. "Four Women" and Simone's other evocative activist anthems sang to a truth that the world needed to hear. And it is a truth that remains sung to this day. This musical includes some of Simone's most popular Civil Rights anthems, like "Mississippi Goddam," "Go Limp," and "Young, Gifted, and Black" to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing. Written by Christina Ham and directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton, Nina Simone: Four Women makes its West Coast premiere courtesy of Seattle Rep at the Bagley Wright Theatre.
Both irreverent and surprisingly sentimental, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas is the classic country-western musical comedy based on the strange-but-true story of the real-life Chicken Ranch brothel. Protected by a friendly sheriff and frequented by governors, senators, mayors and even victorious college football teams, Miss Mona's cozy bordello thrives in the small town of Gilbert -- until a puritan nemesis in the guise of a crusading do-gooder focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution and tries to shut it down. Nominated for a passel of Tonys in its original '79 Broadway run and turned into a hit film starring Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, this latest production comes to the Seattle Music Theatre.
A popular and critical hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted sequel to Ibsen's realist masterpiece begins with a knock at the door. Some 15 years prior, Nora walked out that same door, leaving behind her husband and children to pursue a life as a fiercely independent woman -- a sure shocker in the 19th century. Now it's revealed that she's been busy writing scandalous novels that encourage women to break free from the bonds of marriage and find their own destiny. When a powerful judge blackmails Nora, she comes home to ask for help from the very family she abandoned. Coming to the Leo K. Theatre, the Seattle Rep's production of A Doll's House, Part 2 is a blistering and very funny meditation on marriage and the high cost of personal fulfillment -- and you don't need to have seen the original Ibsen to thoroughly enjoy this play, dubbed "explosively funny" by the Hollywood Reporter and the recipient of eight 2017 Tony Award nominations.

Enjoy this hilarious musical farce at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse.
Set in the locker room of a Florida high school, Dry Land examines an unlikely and touching friendship between two teen girls, one of whom has enlisted the other to help her terminate an unwanted pregnancy.

See it in Seattle at the Bathhouse Theater.

Then, with the audience's support, they will craft a story on the spot that explores each object.

A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place - and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated and the jurors become Twelve Angry Men in this classic show at the Renton Civic Theatre.
