Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay when we make the wrong choice.

Starring Titan co-founder and resident company member Laura Frye as Hamlet, Titan ends its milestone season in a thrilling way.
With just hours until opening night of the comic farce, Nothing On, an amateur theater troupe still has plenty of work to be performance-ready. Between mistaken props, forgotten lines, inner-cast discord, and a torrent of awful acting, one can’t help but wonder if these eager thespians can successfully make it to the stage, or will they end up running around with their pants (quite literally) at their ankles?

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.

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.

Canadians aren’t nice and polite; we’re passive-aggressive a-holes who manage to keep a low profile because we spend half the year in hibernation. We can’t pick a fight with “Big Brother to the South” because we spend more per capita on doughnuts and toques than on our military. Enough is enough! It’s time to speak our truth, and tell you what we really think a-boot the state of the world. Sorry, not sorry!

Grammy-winning guitar hero Albert Lee is set to blow the roof off The Canyon in Agoura Hills with his speedy style of fingerpicking, and as a former member of Eric Clapton’s band, you know he comes with some serious musical credentials. Known as “the guitar player’s guitar player,” the legendary Lee’s influential country-rock sound has been heard live and on disc supporting everyone from The Crickets and the Everly Brothers to Dave Edmunds, Emmylou Harris, Bill Wyman, Brad Paisley and Ricky Skaggs, who had a hit with Lee’s signature song, “Country Boy.” He’s also released more than a dozen solo albums, including 2015’s acoustic disc Highwayman. Lee occupies an odd niche in music. British by birth and upbringing, he spent the mid- ‘60s as a top R&B guitarist, but in the 1970s became one of the top rockabilly guitarists in the world, and no slouch in country music either. In England he’s a household name, and in Nashville and L.A. he’s been one of the most in-demand session guitarists around.
