Richard III
Why not ring in the autumn darkness with Richard III? Better yet, catch a version that reimagines the murderous king as a femme fatale. Seattle Shakespeare Company re-creates the iconic history with an all-female cast. No fear: the scheming and nephew murdering remain. Through Oct 7. Leo K. Theatre, $32–$48
