Musical theater, like the optometrist's office, is one of the only places where it's preferable to vocalize one's thoughts and feelings in song rather than sentences. Today's side deal delves into song and dance with a $15 ticket to the Seattle Musical Theatre's production of 110 in the Shade in the Magnuson Park Community Center Building (normally $30). Choose from 10 performance dates (see sidebar), including nighttime shows and matinees, and witness musical storytelling more riveting than songs about properly filling out tax forms.

Seattle Musical Theatre is solely dedicated to the art of the musical and has performed many of the nation's most popular song-and-dance spectacles. This spring, the company is presenting 110 in the Shade, a musical adaptation of N. Richard Nash's 1954 play set on an isolated Texas ranch in the middle of a 1930s heatwave. The show's protagonist, Lizzie Curry, is a woman past a certain age and teetering on the precipice of near-certain spinsterhood when a charming stranger blows into town bringing drama and promises of rain (for $100) into Lizzie's world. With heartbreaking ballads and lively ensemble numbers, 110 in the Shade brings Nash's play to vivid, sing-songy life.

Seattle Musical Theatre performs its shows in an intimate, 400-seat theater in Magnuson Park. Sunday matinees have open seating (first come, first served, starting at 1:15 p.m.) whereas Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows grant Groupon holders priority seating in the middle of section B and the front rows of side seating, as shown by this seating chart. You must arrive at the box office at least 30 minutes prior to showtime to claim your tickets.

Reviews

Seattle Musical Theatre's past performances have drawn rave reviews from the Seattle Times, the Daily Herald, Seattle Gay News, and The Broadway Hour Seattle:

  • The choreography is more than dance steps. There are very funny interactions with characters that are contained in a song-and-dance sequence, if you pay attention. – Miryam Gordon, Seattle Gay News
  • The cast of local actors ably handles the light-hearted ensemble songs, the mournful moments, and the occasional quite complex harmony…[the director and choreographer] never hits too hard with the jokes, keeping the pace light during the humorous moments and not taking the puns seriously. While it shifts in mood and has its share of mournful moments, the play keeps continuously moving and never loses its audience. – Kenna M. Kettrick, The Broadway Hour Seattle
