Met Picks: Last Chance!

Don’t miss these shows, now in their final weekend

By Laura Dannen November 12, 2009

LAST CHANCE TO SEE: Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Director’s Choice, including the sensual “Petit Mort” (closes Nov 15), and Simple Measures and Seattle Dance Project’s collaboration “Earth” (closes Nov 15).

We heard that PNB went above and beyond to put on last night’s performance, since the power was out at McCaw Hall — and across most of Lower Queen Anne — until 17 minutes till curtain. They didn’t get a full dress rehearsal in, so the show was admittedly a little rough around the edges, but we admire their perseverance. If we had a “The Show Must Go On!” Award, we’d give it to them. We should have one of those…a little tin trophy. I’m on it.

The Seattle Symphony Chorale performs Orff’s famous cantata Carmina burana this weekend only (Nov 12-14).

JUST KIDDING! Intiman Theatre has extended its run of the popular Abe Lincoln in Illinois — adapted from Robert E. Sherwood’s Pulitzer-winning 1938 script about our lanky leader’s life pre-White House — through November 19. We’re planning to go to the play this weekend, so check back here for our review of it on Sunday.
