Ray Bradbury is my favorite author and Something Wicked This Way Comes is my favorite book by him, so I absolutely had to go see this play! My dear daughter rolled her eyes at me and said she didn’t like plays, but she’d go and my husband also joined us. All of us loved it! It was true to the book and creepy (perfect for October) and had great effects and acting. Afterwards my daughter revised her opinion to she doesn’t like musicals (we’ll work on that!). Of course my favorite part is that the adult hero is a librarian! Though it did bother me that he was considered old at 54! That’s a little too close for comfort!
The play was at the Lakewood Playhouse at 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd. Lakewood, WA 98499. It is a small theater with enthusiastic volunteers and a nice seating arrangement. http://www.lakewoodplayhouse.org/
