Yeah, I know—Of Mice and Men isn't exactly the kind of daring new work we normally get excited about. But this production smashes together some of the best theater talent in the city: scenic design by Stranger Genius Jennifer Zeyl; music and sound design by Robertson Witmer of "Awesome"; performances by the inimitable Charles Leggett (who improves every scene he's ever been in), Troy Fischnaller (who doesn't know how to be not-interesting onstage), Ray Tagavilla (whom we've regularly exhorted regional theaters to hire more often), and many others. If this show isn't a parade of brilliance, I'll eat this week's Suggests page on camera and post it to Slog. (Seattle Repertory Theatre, 155 Mercer St, 443-2222, 2 and 7:30 pm, $12–$64)
