Stimson-Green Mansion First Hill
Recommended by Rich Smith
Local theater company The Horse in Motion will transform the Stimson-Green Mansion, a well-preserved 10,000-square-foot Tudor-style manse that stands out among the surrounding soulless condos on First Hill, into Hamlet's Elsinore. I didn’t think you could make one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies even more of an existential mind-spiral about the perils and paradoxes of action and inaction than it already is, but director Julia Sears and her crew have found a way to do it. This immersive version will feature two different productions of the play running in the house at the same time, sword fights in the library, and ghostly theatrical surprises.
