I Could Just Eat You Up 

Wednesday, Feb 23 2011
Kids. They can drive people crazy. Especially when they're not really kids, but rather some type of animated warm sticky foodstuff like a pork dumpling. And these kid/food things, they're even more troubling when they channel the voices inside one's own head, maybe those Freudian mental components like the ego, the superego, and the id. Welcome to A Three Little Dumpling Adventure, a one-act play in which mommy and daddy have it out at home with their representations of offspring. It's part of the Bay One Acts Festival, which sees the best of smaller theater companies performing the works of local playwrights. Companies such as PianoFight, No Nude Men Productions, 11th Hour Ensemble, the Playwright's Center of San Francisco, and Woman's Will lend production, directing, and acting talent to 11 locally written short plays. The works are shown in sets of five and six at time, and discussions with playwrights, directors, and casts are held after each performance. Rumor has it there's an opening-night party at a nearby establishment after the second set. We wonder whether pork dumplings will be served.
Wednesdays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: March 6. Continues through March 26, 2011

  • 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.'"
