Café Nordo Presents: Sauced
This fall, Café Nordo returns to the Mainstage season with "Sauced", one part historical tour of mixology, one part film noir style thriller, shaken and served up with a dash of surreal.
Featuring tantalizing original jazz numbers by Award-Winning Composer Annastasia Workman and a classic noir script by Terry Podgorski in the style of "The Maltese Falcon."
"Best Bartender in America" Murray Stenson has crafted a unique classic cocktail flight to pair with chef Erin Brindley's imaginative era-inspired four course dinner.
The cast features Faith Howes closing out the run for Broadway veteran Billie Wildrick, Gregory Award Winner Ray Tagavilla, with Nordo favorites Opal Peachey and Mark Siano fresh off their smash hit Bohemia. Multi-talented Evan Mosher joins the cast as a drunk trumpet playing historian. Richard Sloniker, one of Seattle's most respected actors, will step in for a portion of the run (Oct 21- Nov 8) and director Paul Budraitis will be at the helm.
Hot noir, cool jazz, "Sauced" is slated to become Café Nordo's most universally beloved productions to date.
"'Sauced' is all about dames, detectives, deals and a flight of cocktails artfully designed by Seattle's award-winning bartender Murray Stenson." - Seattle Times
"We must all be tired of Tagavilla being called out as a high point in virtually every production in which he takes part, but it must be said again: He is a superior actor." - The Stranger
"Staging creatively dramatized meals spiced with eco-awareness, pop-cultural satire and tipsy music." - American Theatre Magazine
"Dapper Annastasia Workman's piano-playing almost upstages everyone." - The Stranger
"Opal Peachey owns the stage owns the stage. Watching her small, pale face harden as things go sour is a pleasure." - The Stranger
Get in here, you got something better to do?!
Please note that Friday, December 4th will be an ASL performance with interpreters in attendance.
