I went to opening night of Corteo at Marymoor Park. I had incredible seats (about 10 rows from the stage) and access to the Tapis Rouge tent. I will admit it is definitely the way to go especially since it was free. The show was great however there is a fashion point to this. People in Seattle have a very interesting take on how to dress for an event. Before I tell you exactly what I mean I must comment that I have attended events in Chicago and NYC. People here in Seattle take casual to the extreme. For the most part people were dressed in what would be considered appropriate business casual some even dressier. I did see a couple of "prom" dresses but the really disappointing is the people that you wonder if they looked in the mirror before leaving the house or even realized they were leaving the house to go somewhere other than the grocery store. I really would like to see a return to people dressing for theatrical performances.
