Lady killers — How two men handle the women in their lives delivers the laughs in ‘No Way to Treat a Lady’

March 25, 2015

Audiences will be excited that Village Theatre veteran director Steve Tomkins was able to cross off another production from his bucket list — this time, one of the first productions in the Village Originals program in 1999, “No Way to Treat a Lady.”

Adapted from a William Goldman novel, Douglas J. Cohen penned a tale of Christopher “Kit” Gill and Morris Brummel, who are both having mommy issues. How they approach their problems is at the core of the musical.

By Tracy Martin/Property of Village Theatre Christopher ‘Kit’ Gill (Nick DeSantis) tries to seduce the frustratingly flamboyant Carmella (Bobbi Kotula) in an attempt to make her one of his strangled victims in Village Theatre’s newest musical ‘No Way to Treat a Lady.’

I have read all the Western stories and have started through them again, some I recall and some I don’t recall, as just had my 85th birthday, ha ha.

Vote for annexation into Issaquah

I would like to remind my neighbors on the plateau that there will be an important election Feb. 11.

This election is about the annexation of the area known as the Klahanie Potential Annexation Area into the city of Issaquah.

A vote of “yes” on the measure promises to bring lower property taxes to the area and will provide the plateau with many badly needed services not provided by King County.
