When ArtsWest announced its 2015-16 season, this was the production I was most excited about seeing. In an Upper East Side restaurant, four busboys—two Mexican immigrants, an African American and a Mexican American—dream about their futures. Written by Elizabeth Irwin and directed by Mathew Wright; the production is the Northwest premiere. Take note: The show on Nov. 11 will benefit Ramon Aspeitia, a West Seattle restaurant worker. According to a press release, Aspeitia was left paralyzed after being stabbed by three assailants last month on his way home from work. All proceeds will be given to his family to help with medical expenses.
If you go:My Mañana Comes, through Nov. 22, ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (Tickets start at $17)—F.D.
