San Juan County Fairgrounds, Marie Boe Bldg.

Stage Left is thrilled to announce a four week run of the dynamic, thought-provoking, Tony Award-winning play, "RED," by John Logan. Although set in the studio of abstract painter Mark Rothko, in 1950s New York, this play speaks a universal language about a generation passing the baton, about ethics and art, about the ferocity of artistic passion—all seen through the father/son, mentor/student relationship of Rothko and his apprentice, Ken.

Daniel Mayes returns as Rothko;  and this year Stage Left introduces Seattle's Jonathan Shue as Ken.  

Dates & Show Times: October 24 - November 16,  Thursday & Friday & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 4:00 p.m.

Pianist extraordinaire Jon Kimura Parker will light up a dark November night with an incredible solo performance for the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival in this "Simply Jackie" Salon Concert.

You will be dazzled with Jackie's brilliant technique, but long after the final notes of Jackie's Fantasy program, you will be left with a sense of profound knowledge of having heard a true artist performing some of the most beautiful music ever written for solo piano.

A reception of light hors d'oeuvres and Thurston Wolfe wine will follow the concert.
