Two Musicals and a Comedy Show You Should See in May

Million Dollar Quartet at Village Theatre

Did you know Million Dollar Quartet made its world premiere at Village Theatre in Issaquah in 2007? The beloved musical — which tells the true story of a jam session between Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins — won Levi Kreis a Tony Award for his performance and was nominated Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical. Million Dollar Quartet is returning to Village Theatre in Issaquah from May 9 to June 23 and runs from June 28 through July 28 in Everett. Get your tickets now.

Aravind Sa’s IWasNotReadyDa at Bellevue Performing Arts

Does the name Aravind Sa ring a bell? You may have seen him a few years back when he went viral for being single and went on to tour the world with his comedy act as the “quintessential appavi-Chennai-boy-next-door,” sharing relatable riffs about all the things in life he wasn’t prepared for. He did a show in Seattle last year, and now he’s back! See him live on May 12 at Bellevue Performing Arts. Tickets can be found here. 

Menopause The Musical at Moore Theatre

Courtesy G Four Productions

Oh, the joys of getting older. While menopause might not be a laughing matter in the moment, we’re pretty sure this musical will have you in stiches during the 90-minute performance. The show tells the story of four women shopping for bras at a department store and bonding over hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain, and all the other wonderful changes women’s bodies go through at that age. The empowering performance celebrates “that menopause is no longer ‘The Silent Passage.’” The short run begins May 14 and ends May 16 at Moore Theatre in Seattle.
