Oh My, (Fill in the Deity of Your Choice)!!!!!
We support this SO very much.
We really j’adore the hell out of Annex Theatre, Seattle’s oldest and most cherished fringe theater company dedicated to producing new works by local artists. Many, many theater makers in Seattle and around the globe got their start there (uh, Paul Giamatti for one) and Annex has been an important training ground for so many artists.
That, and they do fun, crazy shows involving zombies, mutants, robots, psychotic nuns, more alien beings and vampires than you can shake a vintage copy of Fangoria at, and every other weird thing under the hot, hot sun. Oh, and lots and lots of queer theater, to boot! (Many of those zombies, robots and psychotic nuns are some combo of L, G, B, T, Q…..)
Which leads us to….they’re now raising funds for something they REALLY need….AIR CONDITIONING! Anyone who has attended an Annex show from May through September knows it can get stuffy in there, and oven like in July and August. Quirky, queer nerd theater is awesome but less so when you’re sitting there sweating like a Trump writing a check!
Saint John’s Bar & Eatery is a down the street neighbor of the Annex on Pike, and they’re donating a portion of proceeds from 6pm to 9pm on Sunday, July 15th to help Annex reach their goal…it’s a good way to get a great meal AND help out a great theater company. You should do it, if possible, or just donate to Annex’s A/C campaign.
