That was like, totally meta, dude Mar 6, 2009

 “Anyone for a peanut butter & jelly? ”  “Yes, please! ” It’s not the usual way you begin a theater experience – handed a free sandwich slathered with its ingredients by one of the company’s founders and a too-perky smile – but it signaled that the next four hours of No Dice by Nature Theater of Oklahoma wouldn’t be very usual either.

It's all about the Kozy Shack Mar 6, 2009

 “I thought we were going to get the sandwiches during intermission. ”  “Oh, I thought the sandwiches were part of the show. ”  “I thought we were going to be given sandwiches in brown paper bags and you’d be surprised to discover what kind they were. ” These were the beginnings of various discussions around me as I took my seat in the very large empty floor of an office building on Eastlake ”¦with my sandwich, which was made by Kelly Copper, one of Nature Theater of Oklahoma’s Directors.

Seattle Met thinks you should be over on Eastlake this weekend Mar 4, 2009

"At just $6 an hour, it’s the best entertainment deal in town." Mar 2, 2009

Here's a little something  about Nature Theater on Seattle Weekly's site:

No Dice is joyful and childlike at one moment, then unsettling and sinister the next. There is no plot. Mundane office tasks are performed. Mel Gibson’s take on Hamlet is discussed. And, believe it or not, the time really does fly by. (There’s a 30-minute intermission, too.) If tickets for the New York run hadn’t been so hard to come by, I would’ve gone two or three more times.
