Seattle acting couple hurt; friends seeking help

From Misha Berson, Seattle Times theater critic:

Local actors Zach and Ashley Adair were injured Saturday while crossing a Seattle street, friends and colleagues report. Zac Eckstein and others are fundraising to help them in their recovery.  The Adairs, married in fall 2011, were featured in a Seattle Times story about acting couples, published in 2010.  Some of what Epstein has written about the funding campaign on gofundme.com :

“On January 11th, 2014 Zach and Ashley Adair were struck by a car while crossing the street in a crosswalk on Stone Way in Seattle. Ashley suffered a head injury as well as painful bruising on the left side of her body. Zach suffered a small bleed in his brain and a piece of his skull has been temporarily removed to relieve the pressure. He is currently in the ICU and is predicted to be there for at least a week depending on his progress, although he is conscious.  [Ashley is now home recovering after a short stay in the hospital.]

“They were both graduates of Cornish College Of The Arts and enjoy much success as local theater performers in houses such as ArtsWest,  Intiman, and others. They recently purchased their first house together in South Seattle and just last week bought a second kitten to fill the extra space.”

A benefit show for the Adairs will be performed by local actor-comedian Jennifer Jasper on Jan. 15 at the Rendezvous Room.   Details here.
