Bandaloop
Meany Hall, as in the building itself, is the stage for this open-air performance that reimagines dance as an act more...vertical. In Bandaloop, performers traverse Meany’s exterior seemingly free from the petty restrictions of gravity, thanks not to magic but to a system of ropes and harnesses. The unveiling of new work in collaboration with University of Washington dance students makes for an unmissable engagement. Try to ignore the strings and just believe. Meany Hall, $44–$52

Nick Offerman: Full Bush
“If there is a God, no part of the Bible or Christian doctrine will convince me of His existence half as much as the flavor of a barbecued pork rib,” says Nick Offerman. The philosophizing man’s man brings his salt-of-the-earth wit and wisdom to Seattle. Moore Theatre, $37–$57

Sat, Oct 7
Fresh Hops Festival
Tasting fresh hop beer after a lifetime of the dried and processed hop beer found on most market shelves is like switching from diet soda to the real stuff. Good thing the Yakima Valley grows gobs of the stuff. Celebrate these malty beverages with a wealth of local breweries, including Fremont, Bad Jimmy’s, Lowercase, and Elysian. Hale's Ales, $25–$30

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

The Myra Platt adaptation of Maya Angelou’s essential work of autobiography returns to Book-It for a new run. The story of Angelou’s fight against the tide of racism in mid-twentieth-century America finds an intimate, and no less relevant, home on the stage—as does its call for personal perseverance. Book-It Repertory Theatre, $25–$40

Oct 1–29
Pride and Prejudice
Playwright Kate Hamill knows a thing or two about adapting Jane Austen to stage…with a twist. The New York Times called her version of Sense and Sensibility “pumped full of helium,” a lively romp “for those who don’t usually like Jane Austen.” Expect the same for the West Coast premiere of Hamill’s Pride and Prejudice. The stately decorum and period attire remain, but expect the fraught love story between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy to take a more progressive swing. Seattle Repertory Theatre, $16–$50
