Also, I don’t know which Muse our playwright/actor/voice master/ John Ruoff was listening to when he wrote, Flame in the Mirror, but it has broken all box office records for the Eclectic Theater during its run there after a great critical write-up in “Drama in the Hood”:http://www.dramainthehood.net/2013/10/flame-in-the-mirror/

John may have been listening to the right Muse this time.

Gong to the Theater can be a lot of fun, until tragedy strikes.

Staged Parable Ends in Tragedy!

In a horrible turn of events, actress Wanda Moats, performing as the DUCK, in a opening night scene from  “The Winter Winds of WARP”, was run over and killed onstage only feet from the audience she was performing for this past Friday evening at the Seattle Center’s Center House TPS Theatre #4.  In retrospect, the DUCK’s concern was apparent several seconds before the final impact, as evidenced by the following photos.  But, the audience, caught spellbound, offered no assistance.

The DUCK’s body was tossed a horrid distance by the impact, apparently hitting the back wall, and then rebounding to end up not a foot from where the accident occurred.  First responders reported her dying quacks, but efforts at resuscitation were futile.  A CHICKEN is currently wanted for questioning, as observers report the DUCK arguing with such a bird only moments before impact.  Fowl motives have not been eliminated.   A photo of the CHICKEN has been released, which the Seattle Celebrity News! has posted below.  The driver and/or occupants of the truck have as yet not come forward.

The DUCK was seen in a heated disagreement with this CHICKEN not moments before the accident.

WARP representatives report that the show has not closed, but continues, feeling strongly that “the DUCK wouldn’t have wanted it this way – but we have a show to get on.”  The theater being no place for airy sentiment.

Festival goers report that “you can still see the duck splatter and blood on the back wall”.

CHICKEN of interest.
