Go See Some Theater in Seattle!Or even some theatre...The 5th Avenue has "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", through November 1. In fact they are having a 2-for-1 sale for the two shows on Halloween. Now, you may think of "Joseph" as that silly show with Donny Osmond, but let me say that this show is better than that one!! Joseph is played by Anthony Federov who is not, as I would have guessed, a hockey player, but was actually a contestant on American Idol. Fedorov has a honey-soaked voice and an apparent aversion to wearing clothes on the top half of his body. Meanwhile the eleven brothers are hilarious, and did I mention that two of my kids are in the children's chorus?
Meanwhile, for something a little smaller and more Carribean, Studio East is doing "Once on this Island", also closing on November 1. Another great performance by a great cast, and I think one of my children is in that also.
