Fourteen down. Forty one to go.
|The beautiful Moore auditorium echoes with historic performances: Ethel |
Barrymore, George M. Cohan, Anna Pavlova, Helen Keller, Najinski, the Marx
Brothers and Sarah Bernhardt, just to name a few.
|In 1971 Seattle Opera produced|
the first ever staged professional
production of the Who's Tommy at the
Moore, with Bette Midler in the lead female
roles. The theater was also the first home of the
Seattle International Film Festival.
|Hair made quite an|
impression on a kid
from Burien. Glad I saved
one of the posters we put up
all over town.
Oh, and Dame Edna? She was a perfect example of the fun STG brings to town. Barry Humphries has enjoyed an incredible run with Edna since the mid-1950's when she first appeared as a Melbourne housewife. The audience took great delight as she skewered just about everyone, but particularly a small group in the front row who made the mistake of showing up late (for both the opening and after intermission!). All in all, a great evening of fun and special memories.
Thank you, Seattle Theater Group.
