One of the things that makes theater special, of course, is that it's live. Every night of a performance is a unique event; no matter how much you rehearse and standardize, certain variables always defy control.
Sleepwalkers Theatre's world-premiere production of Adam Chanzit's Down to This, about a homecoming, a holdup, and a booty call gone awry, amplifies this unpredictability by offering two endings. Choose-your-own-adventure this is not; each night chance determines which way the play goes.
SF Weekly theater critics Lily Janiak and Benjamin Wachs saw only one version of the show, and they're curious enough about the other version that they might go back for more. (Sleepwalkers is offering a deal to repeat offenders -- er, audience members.) Listen to their thoughts below, in a podcast produced by Benjamin Wachs.
Down to This continues through May 26 at the Exit Theatre, 156 Eddy St. (at Mason St.), S.F. Admission is $12 - $20.
