Dear reader, ordinarily I use this space to mull some philosophical or aesthetic point, then cunningly (or not) segue to promoting the upcoming edition of Spin the Bottle. But this month? I want to trumpet KITTENS IN A CAGE! Because I am as happy about this show as I've been about anything I've ever done. And the Stranger seems to agree:http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/kittens-in-a-cafe/Content?oid=14331039
Want to get a little taste of the show? Take a look at this song from the Marquetta State Women's Prison talent show:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r96mn-1eG4
And if KITTENS weren't enough, Annex Theatre is simultaneously producing a sweet solo show called EL ULTIMO COCONUT on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (including tonight!) and the latest edition of WEIRD AND AWESOME WITH EMMETT MONTGOMERY on this coming Sunday, August 5.
Which is a whole lot of entertainment, all of it at amazingly low ticket prices but dazzlingly high quality. Including a mere $10 (only $5 if you're a student) for SPIN THE BOTTLE this Friday night, August 3, at 11 pm, featuring:
>> A musical glimpse into Annex’s fall show, A MOUSE WHO KNOWS ME by SCOTTO MOORE & ROB WITMER!
>> The impish comic bite of DARTANION LONDON!
>> TROY MINK disappears into a strange and delightful character!
>> The two-headed beast of comedy that is CHARLES!
>> Wisdom and madness from the mouth of THE COSMOS!
>> Melancholy video from SHANN THOMAS!
>> Marvelous melodies from CATHERINE SMITH!
>> Something something something from GUDE/LAURANCE!
>> Ribald, rollicking smut from DANIELLE RADFORD!
...and more, more, more!
All held together by that cool breeze in summertime, KATE JAEGER!
Spin the Bottle takes place at Annex Theatre, just off the corner of Pike & 11th on Capitol Hill. Only $10, and your ticket also functions as a free raffle ticket. Good stiff drinks can be had at the bar for dirt cheap prices. Want to know more about Annex? Go to <www.annextheatre.org

Yours, StB curator Bret Fetzer
