Wonder what Jerry Seinfeld’s been up to lately (aside from producing the so-bad-it’s-good TV show The Marriage Ref)? He’s not planning a Seinfeld reunion anytime soon, that’s for sure. "My show business philosophy is: don’t give the audience what they want. They’re just going to want more cake, until they throw up," he told the Herald Sun recently. Instead, Seinfeld’s on the road doing stand-up—new material, from what we hear—and he’s coming to Seattle on October 1 as part of STG’s 2011–2012 lineup.
Also on the schedule:
Comedian Kathy Griffin does two nights of celeb bashing at the Paramount (Nov 4 & 5).
The Merce Cunningham Dance Company performs seminal works by the late Cornish alum—including his 1968 Andy Warhol collaboration Rainforest and 2007’s Xover—in the final year of the Legacy Tour (Oct 27 & 29). Following a New Year’s Eve performance in NYC, the company will disband in accordance with Cunningham’s Legacy Plan that he set before his death last July.
Mark Morris Dance Group’s send-up of the Nutcracker, The Hard Nut, celebrates its 20th year in production and makes its Seattle debut; Seattle Symphony accompanies (Dec 1–4).
Foodie bad boy Anthony Bourdain and friend Eric Ripert, chef of three Michelin-starred Le Bernardin, dissect the restaurant business at the Paramount (Feb 11, 2012).
And then there are all those Broadway shows coming to the Paramount.
