OG Bridezilla 

Wednesday, Sep 23 2009
The Foul Play theater company performs in black and white. The current production’s source material is in black and white, after all. Staging a series of film adaptations called “Attack of the Killer B-Movies,” the group presents The Bride of Frankenstein between Blue Velvet and Barbarella. Any Halloween-er who has tried to dress as the titular undead wife knows how difficult it is to get the famous hair right -- some people have even gone to the salon and asked to have their hair transformed into a lightning-streaked beehive, only to be flat-out refused by frightened hairdressers. Foul Play, thankfully, forefronts its dedicated wig designer, Jordan L’Moore, as a balm to soothe our worries. The hair will be big and skillfully sprayed; L’Moore is a drag queen. The rest of the production, with its intense makeup and lighting schemes, original score, and old-fashioned theater tricks -- think shadow puppets, footlights, hanky-panky behind the scrim -- promises to be both a hoot and a scream.

  • 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.'"
