ArtsUW Roundup: Opening weekend of Between Bodies, Incident at Vichy, and more!

This week in the arts, attend UW School of Drama’s season opener, see several musical performances, and attend a exhibition opening.

Incident at VichyIncident at Vichy

October 24 to November 4  | Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse

UW School of Drama’s season opener is a production that the New York Times considered “one of the most important plays of our time” in 1964. The questions at the heart of this story—about evil, complicity, self-preservation, and the death of human decency—are perhaps more resonant now than at any time since that first production. Guest Director Kelly Kitchens, who is well-known to local audiences for her work at Seattle Shakespeare Company and Seattle Public Theater, among others, directs an all-male cast.

St. Lawrence String Quartet

October 25, 7:30 PM | Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

“Modern…dramatic…superb…wickedly attentive…with a hint of rock ‘n roll energy…” are just a few ways critics describe the musical phenomenon that is the St Lawrence String Quartet. Through the SLSQ’s Discovery presentation, you will experience an informed, enthusiastic and entertaining breakdown of a Haydn quartet filled with historical and musical guidance.
