Foodie Drama 

Wednesday, Jul 29 2009
Four courses is too much, unless one of them is ... coffee? At "Theater You Can Eat," The People's Theatre company invades a Bolivian/raw food restaurant, and presents a slate of comedies about the effects of comestibles on human life. The first, Wake Up Cup, honestly sounds like a common nightmare: Something happens, you can't get your first cup of coffee in the morning, and then some yutz breaks all the rules of civility that bind you to nonviolence by speaking to you. Is it not one of the great questions of our times, whether it's acceptable to commit mayhem in this situation? The new local company breezes through this and three other playlets — their themes are salad, ceviche, and chocolate, the other three food groups — while you eat your fried plantains, sautéed beef, and/or raw tacos. Bon appétit! "Theater You Can Eat" starts previews this evening; opening night is Aug. 7.
July 31-Sept. 6, 6 p.m., 2009

  • 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.'"
