Help For Haiti

You may have heard of the devastating 7.0 earthquake in Haiti today -

If you have a moment, please consider visiting the Red Cross online to make a donation to help those in need.

You can also text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti. The donation will be charged to your phone bill.

Thank you.

A Final Look at NYC

As the STG staffers wind up their trip to the APAP Conference and get ready to return to Seattle, they've sent along a couple more images to give us a glimpse into their experience over in the Big Apple...

Burn The Floor cast on closing night in NYC.

Wynton Marsalis gives an inspirational closing speech at the APAP Conference.

I'm sure we can not only expect new shows to come through STG's theatres as a result of this conference, but we will also be able to see the positive results of our staff meeting and interacting with arts presenters from across the globe.

Hair Bands Make Broadway

STGers report in again from the APAP Conference in NYC. Short but sweet:

Journey! Whitesnake! Bon Jovi! Pat Benetar! Oh Broadway, you've finally made a show just for me...Rock Of Ages!

Here's hoping we get a chance to see that in Seattle sometime...
