It feels a little bit like awards season around here. (Hey! Where’s our red carpet?!) On the same day that we got notice about the Teen Tix Award, the Seattle Weekly came out with their “Best of ” issue naming “Coriolanus” as Best Play of 2012. How cool is that? In their review of the show back in January, the Weekly said “the story feels so timely that it’s worth the investment.” And guess what? You can catch a few members of the “Coriolanus” company (David Quicksall, Mike Dooly, Therese Diekhans) in “The Winter’s Tale” in the parks through August 12.
