‘An Octoroon’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Apr 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

An Octoroon
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 19–May 13, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

Winner – 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play

“Super oxygenating—despite moments of palpable fear and disquiet, we leave feeling somehow healthier, as though the theater has given us a violent shake and a pep talk.” —Time Out (New York)

I Can Get It For You Wholesale @ Kenyon Hall
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

At Kenyon Hall:

Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 – I Can Get It For You Wholesale

The Seattle Jewish Theater Company returns with the 1962 Broadway musical that launched the careers of both Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould. A dozen talented local performers, directed by the company’s artistic director, Art Feinglass, bring this entertaining production to life.

The critical and popular hit is the story of an ambitious young businessman artfully clawing his way to the top of the garment industry in 1930s New York. The show explores the perils of ambition and the price of success. Contrasting the swinging, jazzy rhythms of big city business with the earthy, traditional sounds of the characters’ Eastern European Jewish origins, I Can Get It For You Wholesale captures the energy and promise of a pivotal time in American history.

For more information, please visit www.seattlejewishtheater.com.

On April 28, front reserved table seats are $14. Row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle, and high school students are $5.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.
