Seattle Confidential: Rewind

Fri-Sat at 7:30 pm. Through May 11. This event has passed.   |   $20 ACT Theatre, 700 E Union St, 206-292-7676
"Actor, writer, director, and impresario Ian Bell has been a force for good in Seattle theater over the past several years: the artistic director of sketch group Bald Faced Lie, the creator of the Brown Derby Reading Series, and the curator of Re-bar theater where he helped cultivate the early careers of music/theater acts like the French Project, 'Awesome,' Mark Siano's soft-rock spectaculars. Seattle Confidential is another of Bell's good ideas, in which he proposes a quarterly theme (this time is 'Rewind') and spends a few months collecting anonymous stories to be read by actors. Bell also collects anonymous surveys and data—sometimes during the show itself, which the audience submits via text—and organizes it into charts and graphs. Part anthropology and part data-cabaret, Seattle Confidential is an entertaining core sample of Seattle's collective psyche." (Brendan Kiley)
