    Vice Palace. Combine Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death" with Fellini's La Dolce Vita, persuade most of your actors to show off their peens, then stage the whole thing as a '30s musical revue. You might end up with…

    Three Sisters. "She's a piece of work," says Masha (Natalia Payne) of Natasha (Emily Kitchens). That may not sound like Chekhov — or at least it doesn't sound like the mannered translations that often pass as Chekhov. But in Sarah…

    The Busy World Is Hushed. It's immensely satisfying to witness a well-reasoned theological debate without heavy-handed hysterics. Keith Bunin's rigorous and enjoyable play is just that, an examination of the essence of Jesus and the reality of faith, plus homosexuality…

    Trouble in Mind. Had she not refused to change its title and its ending, Alice Childress' Trouble in Mind, from 1955, would have been the first play by a black woman produced on Broadway. That might seem a bitter irony,…

    Shopping! The Musical. Some theater types want to be Hamlet; others want to be Liza Minnelli. The smiling, hardworking performers in this musical revue definitely fall into the latter category. Lyricist-composer Morris Bobrow uses his infectious, irreverent humor to great…

  • 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.'"
