Some plays need to be hashed over with a friend.

SF Weekly theater reviewers Lily Janiak and Benjamin Wachs recently caught Ghost Light, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre's ambitious exploration of the son of assassinated San Francisco mayor John Moscone finding himself haunted by his father's death while mounting a production of Hamlet. Directed (and also co-conceived and developed) by Jonathan Moscone, the show is a personal look at very public history.

Too bad it didn't work for our critics.Here they hash it over, on a twelve-minute podcast produced by Benjamin Wachs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
