Seattle Shakespeare Company | Julius Caesar
DATE: Thursday, September 14th
TIME: 7:30 PM
LOCATION: Cornish Playhouse, 201 Mercer Street (map)
INFO: Political Thriller. After the adoring public raises the charismatic Caesar to power, political factions
question the leader’s motives and growing influence. Whispers of mutiny rumble through the corridors of
power. Brutus and Cassius reach a dire conclusion that will set their country on the edge of collapse.
Power Hungry. Shakespeare dives deep into the intoxicating effects of power. Dynamic characters wrestle
with their own ideals. Bloody and brutal decisions are weighed against honor and ambition.
Et tu, Brute? Shakespeare pioneered the way for television shows like House of Cards and Scandal. The action
is swift and enthralling. The gripping speeches are a mastery of language and thought. And supernatural
omens and ghosts add to the edge-of-your-seat emotional experience.
SIFF | Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World
DATE: Thursday, September 14th
TIME: 4:45 PM
LOCATION: SIFF Cinema Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave N (map)
INFO: From Charley Patton and Mildred Bailey to Link Wray and Jimi Hendrix; from Jesse Ed Davis and Buffy-Sainte Marie to Robbie Robertson and Randy Castillo, the contributions of Native Americans to the soundtrack of popular culture-blues, jazz, folk, pop, rock, heavy metal are as undeniable as they are underreported. In the celebratory exposé Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World (inspired by the Smithsonian Institution exhibit "Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians in Popular Culture," created by Tim Johnson and guitarist Stevie Salas), director Catherine Bainbridge takes us through a rollercoaster of fantastic music and wide-ranging interviews–Martin Scorsese and Taj Mahal rub shoulders with Pat Vegas and late poet John Trudell–while never losing sight of the politically precarious place Indigenous persons hold in America's troubled history, in which Native culture has been systematically silenced. "Be proud you're an Indian," says Robertson, recounting advice he once received, "but be careful who you tell." Loud, lively, and endlessly illuminating, Rumble is as powerful as the 1958 Link Wray song it's named after, one of the rare instrumental tracks banned (of course) from radio airwaves since it supposedly "glorified juvenile delinquency."

Theater Schmeater | The Country Wife
DATE: Friday, September 22nd
TIME: 8:00 PM
LOCATION: 2125 3rd Ave (map)
INFO: Sexual innuendo and intrigue rule the day as an innocent young country wife is brought to London and is confronted by the temptations of city life. Wycherley’s 1665 satire retains its bite in the age of social media, body shaming, and the often hypocritical tension between the private and public.
