From the Stranger: Someone got wise and gave BenDeLaCreme a Halloween show. The fact that that someone is ACT Theatre, a company not exactly known for big drag blowouts, is suspicious, but for BenDeLaCreme I’m willing to suspend my disbelief. This horrific tale begins—where else—at Gaylord Manor, where a team of “paranormal researchers” have found themselves on this fateful night. Soon they’re beset by “vampire vixens, well-built werewolves, mischievous mummies and witches that WERK,” and it only gets more fabulously frightening from there.

Can Can’s creepy yet cheery musical is back! Last year, Rich Smith wrote: “It’s Tim Burton’s classic The Nightmare Before Christmas repackaged as a semi-scandalous spectacle for the masses. The audience eats chicken skewers and knocks back $10 cocktails while they watch Tim Keller as Jack ‘the Pumpkin King’ Skellington sing and dance, cabaret-style, along with Luminous Pariah, Paris Original, Marissa Quimby, and Baby Kate, while a ghoulish orchestra pumps out the show’s signature tunes. Despite the glitzy and consumerist exterior, the crew manages to smuggle a complicated cabaret about the horror of fixed identities into the unpretentious space of the Triple Door.”

We have been watching the construction around the lake all summer long. It has been fascinating to watch the bulldozers remove large sections of the earth and replace it with geofoam to prevent the shifting of the soil. Today marks the removal of the bridge, we watched in awe as large boats with cranes lumbered across the lake to do the heavy lifting. The bridge was removed swiftly, and now sits on the dock in front of the MOHAI. I imagine this might be one of the final stages of repair. According to Seattle Parks and Recreation when the project is complete the following items will have been repaired:

If you live or work around South Lake Union, and if you utilize the park at the North end of the lake, you have likely noticed some major renovations happening. I have been mesmerized by the big white hunks of foam visible from my office, and had to take a trip closer to investigate. I marveled at the apparent strength of the construction workers who were able to lift a block the size of a small home with little effort. As I watched them work I did a little research on Geofoam, and found it fascinating enough to share, because certainly anyone who has seen the stuff, has surely been at least a little curious. Geofoam is a lightweight fill material often used as a soil replacement in projects where erosion and shifting become issues.
The following is a bit about the project and it’s expected completion date.
Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Ave N, 98109
$350,000 from 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy
$690,000 from the Seattle Park District
$3.6 million from the Real Estate Excise Tax (REET)
During construction all business in the park will be open to the public: MOHAI – Museum of History & Industry; Center for Wooden Boats; Northwest Seaport; Steamship Virginia V Foundation; Seattle Fireboat Duwamish.
