Taproot Theatre reveals 2015 season

Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson writes:

A classic horror story of blood lust, an invaluable British servant, and a joint campaign by a Ku Klux Klan member and a civil rights activist are all in the mix of the 2015 mainstage season at Taproot Theatre.

The Greenwood district theater’s subscription season offerings will begin next  January with “The Explorers’ Club,” a comedy by Nell Benjamin about a kerfuffle over a woman joining a select society of explorers in Victorian England.

Next on the roster, in March, is “The Best of Enemies,” Mark St. Germain’s fact-based drama (based on a book by Osha Gray Davidson) about unlikely allies working together across the racial divide to de-segregate North Carolina public schools. It will be followed in May by the kind of  British drawing room comedy that is one of Taproot’s specialties:  Jeeves Intervenes,”  Margaret Raether’s adaptation of a P.G. Wodehouse story about the twittish Bertie Wooster and his enterprising butler Jeeves.

A revival of the hit Stephen Schwartz- John-Michael Tebelak musical “Godspell (loosely based on the New Testament’s Book of Matthew) arrives in July.  And the season closes with an autumn 2015 run of Nathan Jeffrey’s new version of the Bram Stoker vampire tale, “Dracula.”
