"An Inspector Calls

The Taproot Theatre opens its 30th season this week with the opening of J.B. Priestley’s mystery "An Inspector Calls." Set in 1912, "An Inspector Calls" keeps audiences wondering in a classic "whodunit" as the local inspector unravels the secrets of a wealthy British family and the story behind a mysterious death. Originally produced at the Taproot in 1991, the play returns to the theater with previews on Feb. 1 and 2 and will run through March 4. The Taproot is located at 204 N. 85th St. in Seattle and offers a $2 discount on all student tickets, which can be purchased by calling the box office at (206) 781-9707.

Underground Tour

If you’re in the mood to learn more about the history of Seattle, the Underground Tour is for you. Led by a tour guide, the tour takes visitors underneath the streets of Pioneer Square to the original streets of the city, which were destroyed by a fire and were later built over in the rebuilding of the city. Old storefronts and antiques still litter the underground world, and is a fun place to poke around during a weekend respite from homework.

Benefit Concert for Alopecia

For fans of hip hop, check out the benefit concert Friday night at the Q CafŽ, featuring artists Macklemor, YO the Youngin’, Gam Boi, & N.I.C.E. The concert will cost $5 (and a canned good donation) at the door and the proceeds will go to a local Alopecia patient. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack the hair follicles, causing hair loss on the scalp and other areas. The money from the concert will go to help buy wigs for a local Shorewood High student. The show will start at 8 p.m. For more info on the concert and other events, visit
