The Monk 

Wednesday, Oct 1 2008
It's the season for gothic enjoyment, and No Nude Men Productions satisfies the dark itch with their performance of The Monk. In a story adapted by SF Weekly writer Nirmala Nataraj from the influential 1795 horror novel by Matthew Lewis, the play follows Ambrosio, a friar who is swayed from his monastic life by a wayward nun and an imperious aristocrat. As Ambrosio tastes the fruits of temptation, he encounters ghosts, demons, and a vicious Mother Superior, but he never expects the Spanish Inquisition! No Nude Men is known for its intelligent, complex, humorous productions, and The Monk promises delights of a most devilish kind.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 10. Continues through Nov. 22, 2008

  • 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.'"
