Ambitious Actress 

Wednesday, Oct 5 2011
What more could the winner of two Emmys, a Grammy, an Oscar, a Tony, and an Academy Award ask for? It might seem that she would be content to bask in the golden glow radiating from her trophy cabinet, but Rita Moreno isn't ready to relax. Instead, she rounds out her eighth decade of vivacious living by telling her story of struggle and success on stage and off in Rita Moreno: Life Without Makeup. Since it's perhaps the only piece of outright feel-good theater on the fall roster, Moreno's story has little competition in the warm-your-heart category. Don't be surprised when she pulls it off.
Tuesdays-Sundays; Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 2. Continues through Nov. 12, 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.'"
