Prim, Proper, Gay 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2008
The term itself is funny: Boston Marriage is code for "lady homosexuals," and it dates from the 19th century. Those who wish gayness didn't exist tend to stress that the term "may" mean two women living independently "of any male support" but "not in a sexual relationship." David Mamet isn't one of them. His play of the same name features two corseted, starched, lace-wearing, gun-wielding lesbians. In fact, in this play we even learn the old- fashioned term for booty call: "assignation." John Fisher directs Alexandra Creighton and Trish Tillman as the pair, who feud over an extracurricular assignation. See David Mamet at his gayest!
First Wednesday-Sunday of every month, 8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 6. Continues through March 9, 2008

  • 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.'"
