2.¬†An Oak Tree¬†will be at Seattle Center Armory’s TPS Center Theatre. “An absurdly comic play for two actors, ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† one of whom has never seen the play or read the script. ‚ÄúAn Oak Tree‚ÄĚ explores the power of human imagination, ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†and our ability to transform our world and ourselves. David Gassner¬†performs with a different guest actor at each ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†performance. ‚ÄúA play about theatre, a magic trick, a laugh and a¬†vivid experience of grief, and it spoils you for a ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†while for other plays.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Caryl Churchill

3.¬†DUMP ¬†a burlesque show¬†will be at Annex Theatre on Capitol Hill. “DUMP is a depraved, John Waters- ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†inspired, Sex and Garbage ¬†Extravaganza, that will make¬†audiences wish they brought a moist towelette.”

Finally, a ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†multimedia theater presentation that asks and then swiftly answers that age-old¬†question: Can any omnipresent ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†and unspeakably influential secret society ever match the power of friendship?”

Join the Road Trip

Did you know that Emerson Salon has a theatre artist in its midst? Indeed we do! On top of her daily duties as hair extraordinaire- D’Arcy Harrison has reignited her craft in the Seattle fringe theatre scene by auditioning for Theatre Puget Sound while working with a reputable Stella Adler Acting Coach, Charles Waxberg (www.theatre912.com). D’Arcy has an extensive background in theatrical production, performance, in addition to set and lighting design after receiving her BFA in Acting at Emerson College in Boston, MA.

The most recent show D’Arcy will be performing in is called, “Cedar and the Redwoods,” and it is an original ensemble driven tragicomedy put on by Copious Love Productions. The play follows 20 something Cedar as she receives news of a family death and drives from San Francisco to Portland, OR for the funeral. Cedar is not alone on her drive though; the stress has exacerbated her schizophrenic condition and her other personalities are distracting her. She must battle her personal demons as well as ghosts from her past as she struggles to survive her journey through the Redwood forest.

Come see the show and be part of this poetic piece’s Seattle debut!!

March 14, 15, 16, 22, 23, 28, 30 and April 5, 6. Pay What You Can: Thursdays (14+ 28). Doors at 7pm, all performances start at 7:30pm at Washington Hall on 14th Ave and Fir (Central District).
