Anybody Want a Peanut?

When it comes to memorable movie lines, few can compare to The Princess Bride's “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” It's a phrase that immediately makes us nostalgic. Recite it, and little by little, piece by piece, everything comes flooding back. The fire swamps, the water-powered torture machine, the "mawage" priest at the royal wedding, games of wit, and Andre the Giant playing, well, a giant. The Princess Bride was a VHS that was rewound almost as many times as we recited the Inigo Montoya line growing up. So what could be more fun than watching it all play out live? Dark Room and Foul Play Productions present The Princess Bride: Live! in honor of the film's 25th anniversary. Wait, the film is 25 years old? Inconceivable! But one thing is for certain, there is plenty of sword fighting, romance, and sweet revenge in this live production of one of the hottest fairy tales ever told. Come as you wish.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Aug. 2. Continues through Aug. 25, 2012

  • 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.'"
