Seattle’s Theatre Fanatic

Joe Boling likes theatre. And he goes. “In 2002, Boling attended 427 theatrical productions, 8.2 per week. He routinely sees four shows on Saturdays. “You can do five, actually,” he said, counting on his fingers. “A touring children’s show at noon, a two o’clock matinee, a show at the Children’s Theater at 5:30, a regular production at eight, then a late-night show.” He writes reviews about almost everything he sees, posting them on the TPS website. Boling calls his theater writing “commentary,” not criticism.
