The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Kelly Kitchens

As this fearless comedy unfolds, The Revolutionists rewrites the book on legacy, art and activism, feminism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we go about changing the world.

Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Town of Alki: Great Hopes & Fountainhead of Tears @ Southwest Library
Feb 13 @ 6:00 pm

At the Southwest Branch library,Town of Alki: Great Hopes & Fountainhead of Tears, a history of the former town of Alki, will be presented by local historian, Phillip Hoffman, who resides in West Seattle’s Alki neighborhood. The Town of Alki no longer exists. In its place rests remnants of summer beach cottages, 1950’s and 60’s styled houses and, increasingly, a collection of waterfront multi-million dollar homes, condominiums, and penthouses. Mr. Hoffman will relate the story of how the Town of Alki came about and why it failed –largely because the founders did not recognize the natural and physical limitations of their location.

This free event by “Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,” a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is co-hosted by the Seattle Public Library and will take place Thursday, February 13th at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave. SW in West Seattle.

Mr. Hoffman holds a Masters of Urban Planning degree and is the retired director of the University of Washington Office of Institutional Studies. Upon his retirement, he established the Alki History Project. The Project’s mission is to document, explore, and interpret the history of Seattle’s founding neighborhood.

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ presentations are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Next month on March 12th, Susanna Ryan will present her new, entertaining book, Seattle Walk Report.

For videos on these and other speakers’ presentations, check out “Events” at www.loghousemuseum.org. This newly re-named series is open to hosting any speaker addressing historical issues relating to the Puget Sound/Duwamish Peninsula and/or the general public. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ by phone at 206-290-8315 or e-mailing Dora-Faye@comcast.net .

Twelfth Night Productions’ ‘Love Letters’ @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 14 @ 7:30 pm

Mary and Rick Springer in Love Letters, by A. R. Gurney
The Springers are the creators of Twelfth Night Productions, now in its twenty-fifth year. The duo performed Love Letters a few years ago under T.N.P.’s auspices, and we’re delighted that they’re reprising their performance at Kenyon Hall for Valentine’s Day.

The play is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny, but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

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. Pre-school children are free.

We accept cash and checks at the door, and doors open thirty minutes before each show.

‘Love’ silent film with Dennis James on the mighty Wurlitzer @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 16 @ 7:30 pm

Wrapping up our Valentine’s weekend, our favorite organist is back to present Greta Garbo and John Gilbert in Love, a grand, over-the-top operatic scale silent film. It’s a modified version of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina story, but in this one Anna lives!

It was retitled to capitalize on the fact that Greta and John were having a torrid affair, and the publicist had a field day displaying on theatre marquees: GRETA GARBO AND JOHN GILBERT IN LOVE. It worked, and the film was a big hit.

Reserved table seats are $14, and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. (Table seats are not discounted.) Elementary, middle & high school students are $5.
