Arts Rachel Corrie—Chased from New York to Seattle
Seattle Rep just announced next year’s season, featuring The Great Gatsby, plays by Albee and August Wilson, and My Name is Rachel Corrie by the resonantly-voiced Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner, based on the writings of the young Washington protestor who was bulldozed to death in Palestine. The play was supposed to open in New York, but controversy shuttered the production: “The New York theater told its British partners the production was postponed after discussions with people in the arts, ‘religious leaders’ and ‘representatives of the Jewish community.’”
So Corrie is coming to Seattle. Now who’s the grown-up theater town?
