Wake the play, and Ken Jennings, a minor celebrity sighting

Friday, April 4, 2008

Tonight was the opening night for Wake, a play that our dear friends wrote, directed, and produced. It was a very intense character play about people and relationships. The play was good — very quickly paced and filled with unique dialogues.

I helped for a few hours with the set, and it looked great, if I may say so myself. Many kudos to all artists involved!

As we were waiting for our table, a couple with two kids finished their dinner and left, and the husband looked really familiar to me. I’m 99% sure he was none other than the all-time Jeopardy! champion, Ken Jennings.

I didn’t even know he lived in Seattle (well, just outside, according to his site). In my world of minor celebrity sightings, this one ranks slightly higher than passing Blago on a street in Chicago.
