Twitter Trailer Tuesdays? HUH? Let us explain...
Broadway at The Paramount proudly presents Twitter Trailer Tuesdays featuring AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. Here's how it works: a short scene from the 2008 Tony & Pulitzer Award winning play will be tweeted live every Tuesday at 2pm throughout the month of October. Follow @BroadwaySeattle to get a sneak peek of the play The New York Times cheers, “…is flat-out, without qualification, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years," and Time Magazine named the "#1 Show of the Year!"
Following each Twitter Trailer will be a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show! Think your family's dysfunctional? The you should meet the Westons, starting Tuesday, October 6 at 2pm.
Steppenwolf’s AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a grand, gripping new play which tells the story of the Westons, a large extended clan that comes together at their rural Oklahoma homestead when the alcoholic patriarch disappears. Forced to confront unspoken truths and astonishing secrets, the family must also contend with matriarch Violet, a pill-popping, deeply unsettled woman at the center of this storm.
So let's see how this Twitter Trailer works - tune in to @BroadwaySeattle this coming Tuesday, October 6th and get a peek inside AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, coming to STG's Paramount Theatre October 27 - November 1.

Gene Stout wrote an article for the Seattle PostGlobe regarding our current campaign to raise money for the new Paramount vertical sign, and we thought we'd share!
The current vertical sign will come down from the theatre on October 6th - none of us are really sure exactly what shape the sign will be in once it's off the building, but you can bet the exterior of our lovely theatre will look a little bare after it's down. The new sign (below!), pain-stakingly replicated by the kind folks at The Sign Factory in Kirkland, will go up shortly after the 6th.

Meet Steve McCallie, our new CIO (Chief Information Officer) here at STG. He's been with us for a little while now, but it never crossed our mind to introduce him to you until today. Check out that stellar shirt Steve's wearing - it speaks volumes!
He's keeping our internet connection faster than a speeding train, he's helping us organize our crazy selves with skill and ease, and he's doing it all with the command and grace of a DC Comic great.
Steve truly is an IT Hero, and we're glad he's got the shirt to prove it.

Sunny Day Real Estate performed "Seven" from their 1994 album Diary on Jimmy Fallon Live last night -
The song is still amazing, the band is still amazing, and you can bet your bippy the show will be beyond amazing when they play The Paramount on October 15th.
