Saturday, Aug. 23: Garlic Man and CHIKN

Theater Review: "Middletown" at Harlequin Productions

One of the things I love, and there are many, about our South Sound theater community is that it's big enough to allow a broad spectrum of material. Some, obviously, I like more than the rest, but that diversity means I don't have to watch Grease or Annie every year
