The Last Night at Manuela’s

by Anca Szilagyi

Our next event, Buffy Aakaash’s play “The Last Night At Manuela’s” will be a 2012 Arts Crush Featured Event. We’re really excited to be a part of this month-long celebration of art, literature, music, theatre, dance, film and interactive creative experiences. What we love, especially, is its focus on collaboration, experimentation, and encouraging folks to try something new. We’re all about that!

Join us for Buffy’s play on Wednesday, October 3, 6-7 pm, at  2018 E. Union Street in Seattle or at, and check out to see the dizzying array of events on offer. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be posting some of the other Arts Crush events we plan to check out over on our Facebook page and on Twitter. Stay tuned!


Thank You Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs!

We’re thrilled to be awarded funding from the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs to support our next reading, Buffy Aakaash’s award-winning play “The Last Night at Manuela’s”. Buffy is adapting his play from stage to radio and will read alongside actors at Hollow Earth Radio before a live audience while Hollow Earth broadcasts the event on the internet during Morgan’s Martini Hour.  The play was first produced by the FUSION Theater Company as a winning entry in their annual short works festival, The Seven, held June 7-10, 2012 at The Cell Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Save the date: Wednesday, October 3, 6-7 pm (PST) at 2018 E. Union Street in Seattle or at
