Oh, Christi

In the late 1990s, Terrence McNally's Corpus Christi opened in New York City. Because it is a play in which Jesus is portrayed as a gay man (and crucified for it), Catholic groups threatened to bomb the theater. This was back during the height of the WWJD movement, though, and aren't we glad that Christians are so kind, tolerant, and antimaterialistic now? Ha ha ha! But seriously, the current production comes to the Bay Area from Los Angeles, where no assholes tried to kill the actors or audiences. No assholes even picketed the theater. Let's branch waaaaay out and imagine that here, too, we can watch a play about the divinity inherent in all humans in peace.

  • 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.'"
