There is so much going on this weekend, between Sea Fair, Seattle Art Fair, and countless parties. Hence, consider this a gentle reminder that if you wanted to catch Sundown at the Devil’s House at The Culinarium, this is you last week to do so. The latest dinner theatre production from Cafe Nordo was first staged last year, during the Pressure Cooker experimental theatre series. The story and the cuisine brings the bayou to Seattle for a decadent, devilish romp:

It’s the Devil’s last night on Earth, and she and her cohorts will titillate, beguile, and entertain the audience with stories of the Devil’s greatest triumphs and darkest secrets. 

Rebecca Davis takes the stage as the devil herself. The show is directed and written by Eddie DeHais, with design by Zane Exactly and music by Aaron Shay. The 5-course prix fixe menu includes stuffed and bacon wrapped dates, jambalaya and mud pie. (Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free menus are available on request.)

Shows start at 8pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 6:30pm on Sunday. Approximate run time is 2 hours, 40 minutes. Get your tickets online.

Cafe Nordo 2017/18 Season Announced

The next Nordo production and the first in their new season starts September 21. Onērus™  is a new sci-fi production conceived by Erin Brindley and Terry Podgorski.

The year is 2046.  Transparency, the technology allowing citizens to be connected to the cloud 24 hours a day through their brains, has rendered Cascadia incapable of dreaming.  You have heard tell of the machines at onērus™, 100% organic dreams harvested from Deviants. The day has arrived when your credit account reads ONĒRUS™ DREAM VIEWING AVAILABLE.   You cash in your Credits. What will real dreams taste like?

Read the synopses of all five productions of the 2017/18 season online. For the fans and gourmands, you can get your season memberships now on the site as well. (They’re kind of a steal.)
