Seattle is positively dripping with the most cultured, most emotional and most eyebrow-raising events this week–a swing night at Century Ballroom, several touching plays, a much-anticipated world premiere, a special Good Friday concert and (why not?) a day of sumo wrestling and sushi. So whether you’re just kicking off Holy Week or off worshipping at the altar of jazz, be sure to get out!
