There be BEARS all over the Hill this weekend, ’cause it’s the Northwest Bears annual “Spring Thaw”. Bop over to their webpage for a full list of grizzly events, including the big Furnace Party at The Cuff on Saturday. And, remember to be very careful when feeding the Bears…they are VERY hungry this time of year.
If you prefer men (and women) in tights, then check out the opening weekend of the new show at The Annex Theatre…“Team of Heroes: Behind Closed Doors” is apparently a PRE-quel to last year’s hit “TOH” show. It runs weekends through May 19, 2012 and here’s a teaser of what to expect:
The gleaming teeth and bulging muscles of America’s preeminent superheroes hide a dirty past and a fractured present.
HOW DID MADAME MAYHEM AND THE CAP’N GET THEIR POWERS?
IS MISS DIXIE AS SWEET AS SHE SEEMS?
WILL SHOCKWAVE’S MOVIE CAREER TAKE OFF?
AND HOW DO GORILLAS FIT INTO ALL THIS?
The same creative team that brought you Annex Theatre’s surprise hit Alecto: Issue #1, returns with another spandex-clad tale of media manipulation and super-heroics.

Spring Awakening @ Balagan Theatre. The Tony Award-winning rock musical comes (back) to Seattle.
