Angry Housewives at ArtsWest

Angry Housewives banner

The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk at ArtsWest, April 23 – May 24!

“Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly-rompy punk-rock musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1983 by the creative team of Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history.”

Be one of the first to see ArtsWest’s revival of Angry Housewives at the Preview tonight, Wednesday, April 22, 7:30pm. Tickets are pay-what-you-can and available at the box office starting at 6:30 p.m. General seating.

There will also be beer from Elliott Bay Brewing Co. for one buck!

The Spinster and the Carpenter at Twilight Gallery


This fascinating art show by Rebecca Rose is opening at Twilight Gallery & Boutique this Thursday, from 6-9pm, during the West Seattle Art Walk. Guess cellist, Sarah McGrath, will be in to set the mood.

Find out the inspiration behind the small sculptures yet wearable art through her Artist Talk on Saturday, April 11th from 6-8pm.

“In “The Spinster & The Carpenter”, I unleash my dirty little secrets in this tell all confessional, while seeing each lesson as an opportunity to cut myself a break, and learn forgiveness for myself and others. In each piece I finally face the regrets in my life & hold myself accountable for the choices that I alone made, caused and learned from as an independent woman, even when married. I atone for these choices, and take a deep hard look at myself while doing so, while finding non-religious redemption along the way as I become a stronger person.” – Rebecca Rose

If you can’t make it to the opening, stop by the artist talk, but you could always go to both right? See you there!

Twilight Gallery and Boutique is located in the West Seattle Junction at 4306 SW Alaska St.
