From the Sweet Deal Dept.: Seattle Shakespeare Company is offering a free Twinkie to the first 90 people who subscribe to the theatre’s 2012-2013 season. Why only 90? Upon news of the demise of Hostess, the hordes descended, and Seattle Shakes was unable to source any more of the snack cakes around town. “A grocery clerk at the Safeway in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood stated that the last delivery of Hostess products would be on Monday,” according to the SSC.
Three-play subscriptions to Seattle Shakespeare Company range from $54 to $105; next year’s season includes “A Doll’s House,” “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “Taming of the Shrew.”
