Tacoma Theatre Blitz This Weekend!

Three very different shows opening in Tacoma this weekend:

Who says Tacoma’s not a theatre town? Well, me sometimes, but not for want of trying. Well, this weekend, Tacoma is setting out to prove me wrong.

Support your homegrown artists this month, and see a show or three!

Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley

“In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students.  Certainty, doubt, and duty struggle for the upper-hand, and ‘right’ is as elusive as the truth.”
