Three days to go till Halloween, and suitably, there are a scary number of entertainment options to choose from around town.
First, Seattle Children’s Theatre’s “Robin Hood” is a fast, funny show suitable for kids (and parents!) ages 8 and up. Expect swordplay, wordplay and a great, multitasking cast of four actors, including local favorite Hans Altwies. (Or, as we call him in our office, HANS ALTWIES!)
Then we have the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in its final visit to Seattle. Ever. You may remember that Centralia-born, world-renowned choreographer Cunningham died in 2009. His company is now obliged to close up shop at the end of the year. Your last chance to see the real deal is Saturday night at the Paramount.
The scariest thing of all may be watching yourself on TV. So pardon me if I excuse myself for this “What’s going on?” segment that aired this morning on our partner station, KING 5:
