This Week In Theater: Puppets, Musical Phone Sex, Mud That’s Fancy, and More
Rolling right along with January, this weekend brings us the kind of theatrical variety platter that makes us the envy of the West Coast: A world premiere by one company, another up North, fourteen from a different company, the return of a Northwest puppet staple, some semi-absurdist silliness, and a staged reading on Monday, why not?
Evening Edition: RIP, South Seattle Beacon
Gregoire continues stepping it up before she steps out, a shady pastor pleads guilty, the death of another newspaper that’s served Seattle neighborhoods for nearly 100 years, and more.
Evening Edition: In The Periphery

Evening Edition: Bad Lieutenant, Port Of Call Seattle
A busy news day, indeed: A new black-eye for the SPD; waffling politicos in Olympia; the Supreme Court puts its foot down on education reform; 520 Bridge tolling is all right; Dan Savage’s original act of civic duty; and, for dessert, a claymation version of a scifi/horror classic.

This Week In Theater: Another Year’s Work Begins
It seems like an eternity since we last spoke, even though it’s only been two weeks. A mere fortnight. Lots has happened in those fourteen days; some year end lists were released, some awards were given out (with others still to come); a nice way to take a breather after the end of a busy year — your correspondent’s ruminations on that year will be coming soon. The time for rest is over; time to see if we can improve upon last year’s achievements.
Heralding A New Day In Seattle Commentary
Good day, all, and welcome to the Seattle Star!
There are a few things you should know about us as we begin the process of rolling out our site, the first being: We are still under construction. Think of what you’re seeing as a soft opening for a restaurant. Yes, we’re open for business, but not everything is as it should be for it to feel whole.
