Review of "The Christmas Carol Rag" at BAT

Every year the holiday season brings out some of our favorite traditions in song and story, and this one is no different. This year however the Burien Actors Theatre’s, The Christmas Carol Rag (written by Norman Allen and musical arrangements by Howard Breitbart), presents a show that is as familiar as tradition, but with a slightly different spin on the Charles Dickens classic.

Review of "Ben Butler" at BAT

There are many stories that have come out of the civil war. Some detail the struggles the union and confederate soldiers endured, while others are about the oppression the slaves suffered through. Few, however, illustrate the strained relationship of union soldiers and the slaves which they fought for.

Ben Butler is a very unique civil war story that is so incredible, it’s hard to believe it is based on a true story. It takes place a few weeks after the start of the American civil war, shortly after the state of Virginia seceded from the Union.
