ASK REX: #1

Rex Carleton, TPS technical director and Seattle Theatre Wikipedia himself answers monthly questions in this new feature of our Newsletter. Program Assistant Keiko Green sits down with the man himself to ask him one of your many questions.

1. What’s the most inventive way that people have incorporated the Center Theatre columns into their set design, that you can recall?

REX: Those friggin’ columns. (laughter) In a way, I’m kind of a purist. I prefer people to just let them be. I think a lot of the times, designers get all tied up trying to make them part of the scenic element. And often times, it draws more attention to them than was the intent.  So to me, the most effective use of them is to just let them be and let them be part of the blank picture, the slate.

But there have been… there was one show — I’m struggling to remember what it was, but there was one show where they turned one of them into this massive, gnarly tree. I think it was a Shakespeare show, it was a comedy, if it was.

KEIKO: Was it recently?

REX: No, this was maybe 10 years ago now. I’m trying to remember it, but was really spectacular. It made a great giant trunk of a tree.

KEIKO: Sound Theatre/Pratidhwani did Indian Ink, and they did the same thing.

REX: They did too. And it isn’t the first time and won’t be the last time a tree comes to mind — frequently, when you’re looking at those things.

Shakespeare also did a show way way back when, where they actually made a third column. To which I thought, “Wow, two isn’t enough?” And they put it upstage center (laughter) — and I guess that worked, sort of. Anything to justify the presence of the two… which I think is part of the problem.

You just take them for what they are. And frequently, of course, people build stuff around them which is a reasonable approach, but as far as an imaginative use of the columns, the trees come to mind.

There was a show we (The Group Theatre) did, where we painted them like a screaming crimson red. And we did a really elaborate Chinese dragon motif on both of them. That was for A Language of Their Own.

And if nothing else, they were impressive when you demand that much attention to them. But again, I think I kind of like it when you’re not forced to look at them.

KEIKO: Those friggin’ columns.

REX: Those friggin’ columns.

Staff Spotlight: Keiko Green

  1. Where are you originally from?
    Marietta, Georgia. It’s a suburb of Atlanta. I never had an accent, but I do say “y’all” and call people little pet names like “darlin'” and “sugar” sometimes.
  2. What do you do at TPS?
    My job is officially “Program Assistant,” but I mostly work in Communications here — which means I’m the one attempting to write funny Facebook posts and trying to make sure our membership communications are as fun as possible. I hope everyone else agrees… 
  3. What’s your favorite part of your job/TPS?
    I love our office! We have some design/remodeling dreams that we keep shooting out (hello, beanbag loft!), but overall — everyone is really friendly, and we get along really well. The radio is always playing, and we love having artists pop in during rehearsal breaks. Also Ariel keeps our snack bin full, so OBVIOUSLY that’s a plus.
  4.  What was your favorite moment from the the Gregory Awards this year?
    The ceremony was especially incredible to me this year because I got to take home the Outstanding New Play Award for my play Nadeshiko! As a part of Bring Down the House, it was also exciting to stand on that big stage with all those incredible women again and see all the beautiful faces in the audience. Our community cleans up real good.
  5. What’s something most people don’t know about you?
    I can’t whistle. I have double-jointed thumbs. I’m afraid of the dark.
  6. The holidays are coming up — What do you most look forward to?
    I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS. This year I’m performing in A Christmas Carol over at ACT, so mostly I’m excited about that. My family has a tradition of eating cheese fondue on Christmas Eve, but since I’ll be performing, my parents are planning on coming to see the show that night. I’m excited for that performance.
  7. What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a theatre artist new to the area?
    See everything. Get to know all the artists in the area. Learn who’s working and what they offer to the community. Then figure out what you offer that is unique to the area. Present that. Work. 
  8. Are you working on any fun projects you’d like to share?
    As a playwright, I’m working on two separate scripts that I’m REALLY excited about. One will be presented at NCTC’s Pipeline Series at Solo Bar on Mon 11/20. It’s about Two half-Japanese sisters who reinvent themselves after a car accident, called Ballad of the White Tiger
    The other play is a bit of a docu-play about the organizers and events of the Womxn’s March. That play is currently titled White Noise. I have big plans for both projects 😉

Meet the Man that Makes It Happen Behind-the-Scenes!

  1. Where are you from?
    Federal Way, WA
  2. How long have you been working at TPS?
    Since 2009 
  3. What do you do at TPS?
    I manage the major programs at TPS (Gregory Awards, Unified General Auditions, Bumbershoot) I also do all things computer (website, training, technology, IT, etc.)  I’ve also previously worked in facility and member management.
  4. What is your favorite part of the Gregory Awards/What are you looking forward to?
    I always look forward to the day of the ceremony.  More than an awards ceremony, it’s a night to appreciate the hard work of every local theater artist.  Plus we clean up real well.
  5. What is your favorite Gregory Awards moment?
    So many to choose from.  From Charles Leggett’s accepting the very first award in the 2009 ceremony, to Timothy McCuen Piggee’s powerful address for the 2015 Sustained Achievement Award, there’s been no shortage of inspiring acceptance speeches.  We also have had some great opening numbers, including original songs and a Hamilton parody.  No pressure, Sara and Justin!
  6. What will you be wearing to the ceremony?
    What will I be wearing?  Instead of figuring that out I’m procrastinating by filling out a survey.  Ummm… a suit?  Hopefully??
  7. Any advice to the nominees?
    We hope the awards graciously recognize your artistic work and achievements and that you pass that feeling on to other artists.  Everyone deserves to be recognized and appreciated, so pay it forward!  Also, write down what you want to say on stage because if your name is called you’ll forget everything. 


  8. Anything else you want to say to the membership?
    TPS is always happy to chat about what we can do to better serve you.  Drop by our office, send an email, invite us to your mansion or castle.. we want to hear from you!  We’re excited for the future
    of TPS and the local theater community.

Kathy Hsieh to Receive Gregory A. Falls Sustained Achievement Award

Theatre Puget Sound (TPS) and the Gregory Awards announce today that Award-Winning Actress, Director, Producer, Activist, and Educator Kathy Hsieh will be recognized for her many contributions to the Seattle theatre community.

In addition to her personal work in theatre, Hsieh is a leading voice in creating visibility and community for artists of color while inspiring local arts and cultural organizations to work together towards a more inclusive and equitable creative sector.

She will be the 20th Recipient of the Gregory A. Falls Sustained Achievement Award at the 9th Annual Gregory Awards, taking place October 23rd, 2017 at McCaw Hall, hosted by Justin Huertas and Sara Porkalob .

About Kathy Hsieh
An award-winning actor, writer, director, and producer, Kathy Hsieh has worked on hundreds of productions with theatre companies throughout the region. Her scripts have been presented in Seattle; Vancouver, B.C; Chicago and Minneapolis.

She has been honored by the National Association of Asian American Professionals (2003), ArtsFund (2003), The Dramatist Magazine’s “50 to Watch” (2007), Verizon’s Asian Pacific American Bash’s Innovator Award (2012), International Examiner Community Voice Awardee (2015), among others. Her writing has been recognized nationally, most notably by New York’s New Works of Merit Playwriting Contest in 2007.

She is the Cultural Partnerships and Grants Manager for the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. A change agent in transforming the Office’s community engagement and arts funding practices through a racial equity lens, she helped the agency earn the Seattle Management Association’s first Race & Social Justice Management Award. She is also a Co-Executive Producer for SIS Productions which aims to create and provide opportunities and visibility for Asian American women in theatre.

About the Gregory A. Falls Sustained Achievement Award
The Gregory Awards are named in honor of Gregory A. Falls, a former chair of the UW School of Drama, who is credited with creating Seattle’s vibrant theater scene. Falls died unexpectedly of pneumonia at age 75 on April 3, 1997.

More than any other individual, Falls was “most responsible for the theater boom in this town,” said Arne Zaslove, former artistic director of the Bathhouse Theatre at Green Lake. “He was the impresario of bringing it all together.”

Falls founded one of Seattle’s mainstays, ACT – A Contemporary Theatre), more than three decades ago. He was ACT’s artistic director for 23 years until his retirement in 1987 due to early indications of Alzheimer’s disease.
TPS gratefully acknowledges Jean Burch Falls for her contributions and continued support in honoring those that shape our theatrical landscape.

About Theatre Puget Sound
Theatre Puget Sound (TPS) is a leadership and service organization founded in 1997 to advocate for the region’s growing theatre community’s causes and administer much-needed services. TPS is now the Northwest’s premiere arts advocacy and leadership organization, providing programming and services that benefit both the theatre community and the larger regional arts community. Among the many resources available, TPS is responsible for producing the Gregory Awards and the Unified General auditions each year.
