Converted to Crass 

Wednesday, Nov 13 2013

There isn't much to say about The Book of Mormon that hasn't already been said. The musical, from the brains behind South Park and Avenue Q, is about two silly missionaries in Africa and has already won nine Tony Awards, including the coveted best musical category. When it played in Boston, it was "the hottest ticket in town," according to The Boston Globe. When it opened in London, it broke single-day sales records. SF Weekly's own reviewer said the show managed to "transcend simple mockery, elevating absurdity to the point where it comes back around to earnestness." That's pretty hefty praise, but a year later, The Book of Mormon is living up to the hype. It's touring all over the U.S. and selling out theaters from Orlando to Portland. A nine-week San Francisco run begins tonight. Get tickets early — last year a lottery had to be introduced.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 27. Continues through Jan. 19, 2013

  • 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.'"
