Battle of the Bards VII
Fri-Sat at 8 pm. Through Feb 16.
The Ballard Underground, 2220 NW Market St
The annual battle royale between short adaptations of classic stories. The audience watches a series of 20-minute shorts and decides which deserves to be expanded to a full-length version and get a slot in Ghost Light's next season. The contenders this year: Black Vengeance by Nathaniel Porter, a punk-musical adaptation of Othello; Clockwork Beauty by Andrea Karin Nelson, a steampunk version of Sleeping Beauty; and In Fear of You I Do Shake by Lori Lee Haener, a contemporary version of The Trojan Women. Ghost Light Theatricals at The Ballard Underground.
