From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:
Theater Schmeater has announced its 2014 season in a custom-made new home: a 50-seat venue at 2125 Third Ave., in a Belltown residential building owned by the nonprofit Plymouth Housing Group. (The long-running fringe company was formerly quartered on Capitol Hill.)
According to artistic director Doug Staley, Schmeater will inaugurate the new space this summer with “Gala-Schmala!,” a festival of new one-acts by numerous Seattle playwrights. The show runs June 6-14. Next, the group will take to Volunteer Park to perform its annual free outdoor show, on this occasion a madcap version of “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” (June 14-July 20).
A world premiere comedy by Seattle playwright Wayne Rawley titled “Attack of the Killer Murder of…Death!” will play indoors at Schmeater’s Belltown theater, July 17-Aug. 16, followed by Edward Albee’s surreal Pulitzer Prize winner “Seascape” (Sept. 11-Oct. 11) and a Schmeater perennial, “The Twilight Zone: Live!” (Nov. 20-Dec. 20), more staged episodes fromRod Serling’s famous sci-fi TV series.
The Schmee will also co-present a late-night holiday show, “SnowGlobed,” featuring new plays by local emerging playwrights. It will run Dec. 5-20.
