Café Nordo, Seattle’s deliciously quirky cocktail/fine dining/theater combo pack, has now apparently had time to settle into their intimate new space down in Pioneer Square, in the remains of the old Elliot Bay Book space on First Avenue, and after a very successful year of staging shows in their new permanent home, they’re ready to announce their 2016/17 theater season.
It’s gonna include just two mainstage shows of their own but several collaborations with other theaters and artists including up and coming young theater artist Sara Porkalob, plus the silhouette puppetry of Sgt. Rigsby and a theatrical journey with Hemingway and Book-It Repertory Theatre.
(Oh, and it’s not part of the 16/17 season, but Nordo will play host to The Williams Project and their production of The Glass Menagerie later this month, August 17th to September 3rd. The Williams Project wowed Seattle theater goers last summer with their highly acclaimed production of Orpheus Descending…their dinner theater take on a classic like “Menagerie” is highly anticipated.)
Their fall mainstage show, Hotel Nordo is a 1920s set mystery while their spring show, Lost Falls will pay homage to “Twin Peaks”…a clever move since new episodes of the iconic Washington State set, David Lynch created serial thriller series will air in 2017.
They have a variety of season memberships available for sale now…go HERE to check them out.
