Bring Down the House: Part 2: Crusade of Chaos

Seattle Shakespeare working in collaboration with “upstart crow collective” here offers part two of their adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry VI trilogy. It’s a bold and ambitious undertaking, adapted by Rosa Joshi and Kate Wisniewski, and directed by Rosa Joshi.

Most of us are familiar with the history of the War of the Roses, the 15th Century conflict between the Yorkites and the Lancastrians for the British throne. Both were noble lines; both were convinced their man was the rightful heir to the throne, and, as in much of English history, their combat was marked by deceit, treachery, vicious fighting, and outsized egos. It’s all captured on this stage.

Heads are chopped off. Blood, quite a bit of it, is spilled. Drums boom, and the battles are accompanied by howls and screams. It’s realistic noise I would guess, and for those who love Shakespeare, these two offerings are thrilling to see. For others, they may be more than a bit too loud.

Center House Theatre is a relatively small space, not one well designed for arena-sized noise. I found the sound to be overwhelming. The all female cast is very good, but women’s voices when raised as loud as they can go have none of the deep tones possessed by so many men. Unfortunately much of what you hear is shrill. For me it was almost ear splitting. In a larger venue it would have worked better.

As in Part I of this theatrical duo, the acting is excellent. The scenic design (Shawn Ketchum Johnson) makes much of little and does it incredibly effectively. Straight back chairs combined with what looks like a kitchen table create a powerful throne when the action demands it. So much else is suggested by minimalist staging. And Geoff Korf’s lighting reinforces mood throughout.

I’m not sure either of these plays provided any new insights by having an all women cast, but I certainly appreciated the opportunity to see women playing these powerful roles. Wasn’t it true in Shakespeare’s day that all the actors on stage were men? Well, here we see just what talented women can do with male roles.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
