The bass has become an extension of the music inside him, and he has used all of these different basses to let that music sing!

Imagine getting caught in public with your skirt blown over your head and nothing but your bloomers on display for all to see. That's the premise of The Underpants, Carl Sternheim's classic German play set in 1910.

Watch society get its collective knickers in a bunch when this comedy hits the stage at The Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds.

William Shakespeare had one son: Hamnet. The young boy never knew his famous father, but in this riveting tour-de-force from Ireland, Shakespeare's only son finally takes center stage. How do our dreams impact our families? Do adults really have it all figured out? Or, are we blind to what we could have done better until it's too late? In Hamnet, a commanding performance from a young actor confronts what it means -- and what it costs -- to be great. In this moving, meticulous, multimedia wonder, ambition clashes with family responsibilities in a way that rivals the stakes of a great Shakespearean tragedy.

Legendary American R&B and soul singer and musician Aaron Neville has had four Platinum-certified albums and four Top 10 hits in the United States, including three that went to #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.

Led by their mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge and prove that art can save the world. Written by James Hindman and helmed by Tony-winning actor Christian Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher, Smash, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Popcorn Falls brings a hilarious dose of small-town charm to New York's Davenport Theatre.
