Wake the play, and Ken Jennings, a minor celebrity sighting
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!
Before the play, we met up with friends and ate dinner at Kingfish Cafe. 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.
