The 5th Avenue Theater, Seattle (a block from ASI's conference hotel), is one of the leading musical theaters in the country, and a regular venue for many Broadway-bound shows. Shampoo, Aladdin, and Catch Me If You Can all appeared here before they hit it big on the Great White Way. On Thursday, April 30, 2015, at 8 p.m., ASI members will have a chance to see the theater's latest original production, Something Rotten!
We're in Renaissance England, and brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play - but they're up against stiff competition. Will Shakespeare, the critics' darling, can do no wrong. So they seek out Nostradamus (not the Nostradamus, you understand, but his cut-rate nephew, Thomas), who gives them an idea from the future - a play with songs! And the first-ever musical is born - but not without mayhem, madness, and musical mishaps.
ASI member and local resident Carolyn Weaver has seen the show in previews and recommends it as "hilarious."
ASI has a chance to buy a block of tickets in advance, but we need a commitment from potential attendees, and a rough idea of the number of tickets we should purchase; so we need a $20.00 downpayment from anyone who would like to go. The precise price of the tickets and the discount we negotiate for them depends on a number of factors, but we can promise that the balance will be no more than $39.95. If we receive too few commitments to meet the minimum group size and are unable to purchase group tickets, your $20 deposit will be credited toward your conference registration fees.
Put $20 down--no later than November 7--just press the button below and follow the commands, and we'll hold a ticket for you. You can pay the balance when you register for the conference!
