Cino Nights

 

For three nights in March, 2017 a former medical marijuana dispensary in Seattle’s University District was transformed into a makeshift theatre cafe. Inspired by Joe Cino’s legendary Greenwich Village performance space, Caffé Cino, the space housed performances of six short plays from the early days of Off Off Broadway.
