Last night, Annex Theatre won Theatre of the Year at the Gregory Awards, Seattle’s home-grown awards ceremony.  Which is a nice recognition by our community that great theater doesn’t only happen in million-dollar facilities; it happens on second-floor walk-ups with 99 seats (and in basements with 49 seats and former storefronts with 60-odd seats and all the other MacGyvered performance spaces out there).  Theater doesn’t need much to happen -- it doesn’t even need a theater.  It just needs human beings and imagination.

This Friday night, Annex presents one of the extreme proofs of that thesis:  60 Seconds Max!  The annual edition (this is our 9th!) of Spin the Bottle where all the performances are no more than 60 seconds long. 

When we first did this, we thought it would be a joke, a gimmick, we’d do it once and laugh about what a train wreck it was and never do it again.  Instead, what unfolded was a delirious live essay on creativity.  I don’t know about anyone else, but my jaw dropped and I thought, we have to do this again.  And again.  And again.  And every time, I walk out into the night reeling with the infinite possibilities of a single minute of our lives.

Come to Annex Theatre this Friday night, Nov 1, at 11 pm, and swim in the confined creativity of:

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 <>, where you can also buy tickets.

Yours, StB curator Bret Fetzer
