Music by Alan Menken

This is a tale as old as time: a brilliant young woman in search of something more than her small town has to offer and a Beast—who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Dragon Mama @ Cafe Nordo (Seattle – Pioneer Square)
Jan 26 @ 8:00 pm

By Sara Porkalob

How does a Dragon earn her wings? Maria Porkalob, Jr., yearns for a gayer, more POC-filled life than Bremerton, WA, can offer. When presented with an opportunity to make a quick fortune, Maria must make an important decision: leave her debt-ridden mother, four young siblings, and newborn daughter Sara for the wild unknown of Alaska, or stay close to home, family, and intergenerational trauma.

Traversing 25 years filled with queer love in a barren land, Dragon Mama features ghosts, Filipino gangsters, and a dope ‘80s and ‘90s soundtrack.

Ten tickets each night are designated as Community Tickets: Discounted tickets designed to make art more accessible. Created and available for students, artists, BIPOC, and anyone for whom the higher ticket price is a barrier.

Optional: Add a pre-show dinner in The Knife Room at Nordo, by Chef Aaron Verzosa of Archipelago. (Note: The Knife Room is not wheelchair accessible and is only reachable by stairs.)

Mala @ Seattle Public Theater (Seattle – Green Lake)
Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm

By Melinda Lopez
Directed by Sophie Franco

Mala is a darkly funny tale about what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed. It is a comical and brutally honest look at family dynamics, including stubborn parents and unequipped children, and explores the unsentimental poetry of everyday life. A one-woman tour-de-force for a powerful actress, Mala careens from comedy to deep pathos, while having the toughest conversation about the most common of events—the end of life.

Location: The Bathhouse Theater at Green Lake

Tickets ($5-$50, sliding scale available for all) here.

 

Photograph 51 – UW Drama @ Jones Playhouse (Seattle – U-District)

By Anna Zeigler
Directed by Amanda Rountree

In 1951, chemist Rosalind Franklin works relentlessly in her King’s College London lab, closing in on a major discovery that could unlock the mysteries of the DNA molecule. Undermined by her colleague Maurice Wilkins, she struggles to compete with rival team Watson and Crick as pressure intensifies to produce results. Anna Zeigler’s “rich, complex, and moving” (The Chicago Tribune) play honors the monumental contribution of one scientist with two X chromosomes whom history nearly left behind. Second-year MFA director Amanda Rountree makes her UW Drama mainstage debut.

Previews 1/22 & 1/25

A co-commission with Goodman Theatre.

Tickets ($24-$98) here.

Mala @ Seattle Public Theater (Seattle – Green Lake)
Feb 3 @ 7:30 pm

By Melinda Lopez
Directed by Sophie Franco

Mala is a darkly funny tale about what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed. It is a comical and brutally honest look at family dynamics, including stubborn parents and unequipped children, and explores the unsentimental poetry of everyday life. A one-woman tour-de-force for a powerful actress, Mala careens from comedy to deep pathos, while having the toughest conversation about the most common of events—the end of life.

Location: The Bathhouse Theater at Green Lake

Tickets ($5-$50, sliding scale available for all) here.

 

Photograph 51 – UW Drama @ Jones Playhouse (Seattle – U-District)
Feb 3 @ 7:30 pm

By Anna Zeigler
Directed by Amanda Rountree

In 1951, chemist Rosalind Franklin works relentlessly in her King’s College London lab, closing in on a major discovery that could unlock the mysteries of the DNA molecule. Undermined by her colleague Maurice Wilkins, she struggles to compete with rival team Watson and Crick as pressure intensifies to produce results. Anna Zeigler’s “rich, complex, and moving” (The Chicago Tribune) play honors the monumental contribution of one scientist with two X chromosomes whom history nearly left behind. Second-year MFA director Amanda Rountree makes her UW Drama mainstage debut.

Previews 1/22 & 1/25

Location: the Ave, just west of UW main campus

Tickets ($23) here.

 

Dragon Mama @ Cafe Nordo (Seattle – Pioneer Square)
Feb 3 @ 8:00 pm

By Sara Porkalob

How does a Dragon earn her wings? Maria Porkalob, Jr., yearns for a gayer, more POC-filled life than Bremerton, WA, can offer. When presented with an opportunity to make a quick fortune, Maria must make an important decision: leave her debt-ridden mother, four young siblings, and newborn daughter Sara for the wild unknown of Alaska, or stay close to home, family, and intergenerational trauma.

Traversing 25 years filled with queer love in a barren land, Dragon Mama features ghosts, Filipino gangsters, and a dope ‘80s and ‘90s soundtrack.

Ten tickets each night are designated as Community Tickets: Discounted tickets designed to make art more accessible. Created and available for students, artists, BIPOC, and anyone for whom the higher ticket price is a barrier.

Optional: Add a pre-show dinner in The Knife Room at Nordo, by Chef Aaron Verzosa of Archipelago. (Note: The Knife Room is not wheelchair accessible and is only reachable by stairs.)

This is a tale as old as time: a brilliant young woman in search of something more than her small town has to offer and a Beast—who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
