About Crosscut Live
Crosscut Live takes the Northwest’s favorite news site and its singular approach to tackling hard conversations, and puts them on stage in a series of immersive, entertaining and thought-provoking performances. Come for a rich mix of storytelling, conversation, film, comedy and live music. You’ll laugh, you might cry, and you’ll definitely be challenged to look at the region through fresh and different eyes. You’ll come away with a shared community experience that leaves you better connected to your home and talking to your neighbors long after the night is over.
Coming this fall and winter, three delightful evenings at the Hale’s Palladium in Fremont tackle the theme of our changing region. We’ll trace the history of Seattle through its rich musical traditions, bring Eastern and Western Washington together for a night of lively conversation across the Cascade Divide, and look at the region through the eyes of idiosyncratic communities of one. Then we’ll throw back a few beers and talk it over with the gathering of fellow travelers who are committed to creating a bright future for this community. Crosscut Live events will brighten your winter nights with the must-have ticket to a warm refuge of entertainment, enlightenment and conversation.
Crosscut arts coverage is made possible with support from Shari D. Behnke.
