Woo woo! CalShakes, the awesome Bay Area outdoor Shakespeare company, has a new play up, and it just got some attention from the Internet. HuffPo's George Heymont liked The Verona Project's indie-rock, pro-gay, all-original version (written, made, and directed by Amanda Dehnert, who's OSF-grade) so much, he went and said a thing.

"I don't doubt that The Verona Project will be produced by Shakespeare festivals around the world."

Hey, that's a thing! Plays have trailers these days so here's its:

'N beware: CalShakes' production goes only through July 31.

  • 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.'"
