Ezra Dickinson, dance, Mother's Day gift
Seattle dancer Ezra Dickinson has been working on his Mother’s Day gift for the last seven years—a public performance of several short solos called Mother For You I Made This—but it’s unlikely that his mother will see it. A diagnosed schizophrenic, she lives at Western State Hospital. Formerly a ballet teacher, Dickinson’s mother enrolled him in dance classes at age 4 and encouraged his schooling at Pacific Northwest Ballet, where he studied from ages 8 through 20. Meanwhile, her mental health deteriorated to the point that she was homeless and living on the streets.

Seattle Reign FC women's pro soccer professional soccer league
Despite the U.S. Women’s National Team’s impressive rep, a professional women’s soccer league has yet to find solid footing on American soil. But the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), launched by the U.S. Soccer Federation this spring, hopes to change that, and raise the profile of American women players in the way MLS launched men’s teams such as Sounders FC. One of only eight clubs created for the inaugural season, the Seattle Reign FC (named after Seattle’s first professional women’s basketball team) take the field this month.

seattle director Allison Narver seattle theater
Boeing-Boeing will remain forever a 1960s set piece for two reasons. First, the acrobatic machinations of the plot hinge on a printed timetable of airline schedules, whereby the main character, Bernard, juggles his painstakingly timed liaisons with three hoodwinked fiancées, all flight attendants on different airlines. Second, the lothario’s deceitful world begins to collapse thanks to a new Boeing jet so popular and speedy—with nary a production delay or battery fire—the printed schedule can’t keep up.

get your shit together wills death end of life planning Seattle
It sounds like a classic object lesson: a successful freelance project manager who planned for others’ every contingency, but didn’t cover her own bases. That’s exactly the situation Chanel Reynolds found herself in when her husband died in a bike accident and she faced the biggest project she’d ever manage: getting her financial life in order while deep in grief. Reynolds realized that, like many of us, she’d spent almost no time thinking about worst-case scenarios—and didn’t even know the passwords to many of the couple’s accounts.

sidecar seattle ride sharing
Did you know there are countless people—right now, in your very own neighborhood—waiting to take you for a ride? What might sound sinister is actually quite the opposite, thanks to the new smartphone app SideCar (side.cr). Based in San Francisco and launched in Seattle last winter, SideCar uses GPS technology to help subscribers coordinate car rides with volunteer drivers. Unlike taxis or the Uber on-demand car service, there is no fleet of cars, no staff and no set fee. Riders make a “suggested donation” to the driver via smartphone.
