Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson writes:
How time flies when you’re making theater.
Now in its 28th year, Annex Theatre just keeps on trucking along, on an eternal mission to present offbeat new works with an emphasis on scripts by Seattle playwrights.
Annex’s 2015 mainstage season kicks off Jan. 30-Feb. 21 at the company’s lovably scruffy, two-flights-up fringe outpost on Capitol Hill with the world premiere of “Zapoi!,” the story of a Russian composer fleeing persecution, authored by noted Seattle stage actor and Satori Group member Quinn Armstrong. In the Tuesday-Wednesday night slot, Marcus Gorman’s “Natural” the “messy urban lives” of six young Seattleites takes up residence Feb. 3-18.
There’s lots more coming, including works by Scotto Moore, Keiko Green, Brandon J. Simmons and Caitlin Gilman, along with the ongoing Spin the Bottle new works series, The Mad Scientist Cabaret and something called the Zig Zag Festival. For all the skinny, go to annextheatre.org.
