New York Times Shows Some Love to Seattle's Tiny Balagan Theater

Posted by on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 12:36 PM

I'm a big fan of Seattle's Balagan Theater. I don't always love their shows, but I admire their chutzpah, and even with the occasional disappointment (like their current production of Carrie the Musical), I still consider Balagan to be one of the better deals in local theater.

So congrats to Balagan and its new artistic director Louis Hobson for being featured in the New York Times. It'll be interesting to watch the company grow.

Tiny? They have an $800K budget -- that's roughly the budget of any 8-10 fringe theaters, combined. Balagan looks small on the scale of Broadway theaters, certainly, but they're definitely a mid- to large-sized institution in Seattle now, and should be judged accordingly.
