Congratulations. You survived all of the back-to-school shopping and the tears and jeers from the first month of school. Now it’s time for a date night, and what better way to reconnect with society and your loved one than at the theatre. A night at the theatre will provide all of the drama you’ll find at home, minus the guilt. So dial up the sitter and click through the gallery to see what’s playing on a stage near you this fall.

The Crucible

Mark your calendars for Arthur Miller’s powerful and classic play about the Salem witch trials. Religion, conspiracy, witchcraft and lust fuel this passionate play about shame and morality as paranoia becomes strong enough to poison a whole town. This stirring story of the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. Brought to life by Seattle's finest actors, expect to see a contemporary reimagining of this revolutionary play.

Dates: Oct. 13–Nov. 12, 2017
Tickets: $25-$45
