Marquee du jour

October 29, 2010
Editor’s Note:  I directed Lunch in the Afterworld in this WARP’s production of scary shorts.  And Will Phillips and Molly Blades gave me fine performances.

The Seattle Celebrity News!

Bill Selig and Barbara Lindsay at Home

Our intrepid reporter Jeff (‘total recall’) Mandels and photographer Scot Bastian were able to interrupt  local celebrity Barbara Lindsay while onstage at ArtsWest in Seattle.  In between acts, (and later at her home) they were able to record this interview with her and her ‘purported’ husband Bill Selig.  Though the tape has been confiscated and destroyed, a transcipt of those events  follows, based on the Jeff’s (& Scot’s) recollection.

To read the transcript just click on the Page: Stage Interview with Barbara Lindsay (to the right).

The Midnight Mystery Theater is over 20 years old and currently  happens once a month at the Odd Duck Theater.  It’s an old fashioned radio show with sound effects and audience participation and a thousand voices and wild plots.  Written and produced and emceed by John Ruoff, this show has showcased a lot of local talent.   For seven dollars (current price) it’s a bargain.
