Crosscut Live: Seattle vs. Spokane – Conversations across the Cascade Divide


Thursday, January 24, 2019
7:30 p.m.

This event has expired.

Both cities are changing rapidly. A fun, fast-paced show that pits the two big S(ister) cities of our fair state. With good humor, a dose of humility, and a genuine affection for each other, these city boosters take aim and end up illuminating the good, the difficult, and the surprisingly common challenges they face.


Jess Walter & Danny Westneat – Lifelong friends — a journalist and an author — debate the lifestyle, politics, growth and culture of Seattle and Spokane. 

Harry Riley & Emmett Montgomery – Seattle- and Spokane-based comedians review each others’ cities with hilarious results. 

Additional guests TBA!

About Crosscut Live

crosscut live logo

Crosscut Live takes the Northwest’s favorite news site and its singular approach to tackling hard conversations, and puts them on stage in a series of immersive, entertaining and thought-provoking performances. Come for a rich mix of storytelling, conversation, film, comedy and live music. You’ll laugh, you might cry, and you’ll definitely be challenged to look at the region through fresh and different eyes. You’ll come away with a shared community experience that leaves you better connected to your home and talking to your neighbors long after the night is over.

Coming this fall and winter, three delightful evenings at the Hale’s Palladium in Fremont tackle the theme of our changing region. We’ll trace the history of Seattle through its rich musical traditions, bring Eastern and Western Washington together for a night of lively conversation across the Cascade Divide, and look at the region through the eyes of idiosyncratic communities of one. Then we’ll throw back a few beers and talk it over with the gathering of fellow travelers who are committed to creating a bright future for this community. Crosscut Live events will brighten your winter nights with the must-have ticket to a warm refuge of entertainment, enlightenment and conversation.

Crosscut arts coverage is made possible with support from Shari D. Behnke.
