The Rocky Horror Show Review

Before I begin my review of the Burien Actors Theatre’s (BAT) rendition of The Rocky Horror Show, I feel it necessary to discuss some of the history of the show, because to the uninitiated it isn’t just your run-of-the-mill musical. So let me preface this review by briefly delving into the history of the show and why it continues to be such an iconic piece of pop culture throughout the world since its creation.

"Native Gardens" Review

Native Gardens

Have you ever had a border dispute with a neighbor? Was it over yard mess, encroaching plant life, or was it about the location of a property line?

These neighborly disputes are the backdrop for Native Gardens, the very funny comedy kicking off BAT’s 40th season! Native Gardens begins by introducing two couples; Pablo and Tania Del Valle (played by Jesse Calixto and Ashley Salazar), new homeowners from out of town, and their next door neighbors Frank and Virginia Butley (played by John Murray and Connie Murray).

Burien Actors Theatre is taking it to the parks with comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest”

This hilarious, family-friendly adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s farce has fictitious personas, romantic proposals, and the big shoulders of the 1980s.

BAT (Burien Actors Theatre) is taking it to the streets (well, the parks anyway) with a beautiful adapation by Rachel Rene of the family-friendly comedy The Importance of Being Earnest. Set in 1985 with all of the big hair and Valley Girl charm that goes with that, this show will make you laugh out loud.
