Lustful Housewife 

Wednesday, Oct 5 2011
An unsatisfied housewife lusts after her stepson and disastrously indulges her obsession. The visceral tale originates in Greek mythology and has captured audiences since its first stage production in 1677. Shotgun Players indulges our inner voyeur with their twenty-first century adaptation of Phaedra by Adam Bock, who sets the scene in suburban Connecticut. Bock probes the whimsy at the heart of clandestine fantasy, with eccentric contributions from company members Nina Ball (set) and Valera Coble (costumes).
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 21. Continues through Oct. 23, 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.'"
