WATCH | Kinky Boots

Based on the 2005 film of the same name, the Broadway adaptation of Kinky Boots earned 13 Tony nominations and six wins in 2013, including Best Score for Cyndi Lauper. Now the story of a straitlaced shoe factory owner who partners with a drag queen to revitalize his business is coming to rock Seattle.

Where: 5th Avenue Theatre, 1308 5th Ave., Seattle, WA 98101

When: Oct. 7-26

PLAY | Alien: Isolation

The past five years haven’t been kind to the Aliens franchise. First, Rebellion’s 2010 Aliens Vs. Predator remake failed to live up to the shining multiplayer system delivered by its predecessors. Then Gearbox’s Colonial Marines arrived with ugly graphics, nonexistent AI and animations that turned fearsome xenomorphs into Miley Cyrus’ backup dancers.

But the audacity of Alien: Isolation is promising. The game eschews straightforward action in favor of the tense survival horror atmosphere of the original Ridley Scott film. Instead of mowing down waves of enemies, players must evade a single unkillable alien that can hunt, learn — and be deceived.

Platform: Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Release Date: Oct. 7
