As vaccination rates rise, we can see the tail end of the pandemic on the horizon (knock on wood!). In this uncertainty-filled year, it's a huge relief to see improving conditions, though exercising caution is more important than ever. Still, warmer weather is peeking around the corner, and there's plenty of art and media for you to explore this month—no matter what you're looking for.

It’s no secret that the news has gotten everyone thinking about what comes next. For those interested in what life might look like in the future, look no further than Unexpected Productions’ Seattle Theatresports, a now in-person improv show. For those who prefer to see what teens envision the coming years to look like, check out SIFF’s Futurewave, an exciting lineup of movies and shorts curated for youth audiences.

Of course, post-pandemic life—or let’s be honest, life in general—may also evoke a wide range of emotions. For those interested in laughing, crying, or just feeling, we have a great selection for you. UW School of Drama’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist is a comedic farce sure to make you forget about the piles of homework you have sitting on your desk. PNB’s Rep 4 and Seattle Opera’s Big Opera Show are two other pieces—replete with beautiful dancing and singing, respectively—that will give you goosebumps.

So as you coast out the end of a crisis that's sure to make the history books, be sure to check out your local arts venues and their productions! It’s the season to take on the future, good or bad, and our hand-picked selection is sure to help you along the way. Make sure to wear your mask, and stay safe out there.
