SEATTLE -- After disappearing for several months since abandoning its seedy downtown digs on lower Pike St (next to an adult bookstore and a strip club) WindowLight Theatre Company will reopen with a camp version of George Kelly's Pulitzer Prize winner Craig's Wife, Feb. 27 at their newly christened Backbone Theatre on Capitol Hill.
WindowLight which offers gay- and lesbian-friendly productions, such as Vampire Lesbians of Sodom and You Should Be So Lucky, has coincidentally struck on the same ploy that drag artiste Lypsinka did, since Craig's Wife, about a woman more obsessed with her home than with her husband, is the source material for the film Harriet Craig, which is the title of Lypsinka's version, currently running Off-Broadway.
Actor Scott Arend will play the role of Harriet Craig, directed by Jack Edgerton.
Craig's Wife will run Feb. 27- Mar. 28, Fri.-Sat at 8 PM, Sun at 7 PM at Backbone Theatre, 1102 E. Pike St., Capitol Hill. For tickets ($10-$12) call (206) 328-0305.
