Friday, March 9 | Emerald City – Triggered by a conversation between playwright SP Miskowski and director Meghan Arnette about the changing cultural identity of Seattle, Emerald City is a haunting love note/ break up letter to the city.

A writer is forced to return to Seattle, site of her personal and professional ruin, to cover the story of Dorothy Dietrich. Crashing with a college roommate and proprietor of an earnest yet doomed tour business, and surreptitiously followed by a lover whose interest may be swayed by a surprising suitor, her life is once again changed by a trip she didn’t want to take to a city she hoped never to see again.

The audience won’t just be watching a show; they’ll be experiencing the dark, decadent world of Weimar Germany, a strange locale on the border of drama and burlesque, a place on the edge of civilization and of humanity itself. Our old friends Sally, Cliff, and the Emcee will all be there. Hopefully you will be too!
