UPDATE: SADLY, this show has been cancelled!!! Seattle Theatre Group told me it MIGHT be rescheduled for another date in the future but…for now, it’s not happening in October!!!!
We always do a big gay SQUEEEEEEEEE when it comes to news about John Cameron Mitchell, the brilliant actor/writer/director/co-creator of Hedwig & The Angry Inch. Especially when it’s news about John coming to Seattle to do a show.
In this case, my SQUEEEE is in reference to his next show coming to town (and others) on a national tour…it’s CASSETTE ROULETTE, his fun show he does with the fantastic singer Amber Martin (who was also a part of John’s last show in Seattle back in 2020 right before Covid hit the fan). Amber and John will hit Seattle Theatre Group’s lovely Moore Theatre on Saturday October 14th for a one night only presentation of a show chosen by the “hand of fate”!
It’s like a roulette wheel where a twist of the wheel determines what songs and stories will be a part of that night’s show! EVERY show is unique and different…and, since John has decades of great songs, stories, and characters in his show biz trunk, you just know it’s gonna be a crazy fun night.
(And, for Hedwig uber fans, you just know there’ll be a Hedwig song or two in there somewhere…)
