The Postman Rings 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2013
A longtime affiliation with PianoFight — home to Forking!, the holiday-baiting, choose-your-own-ending theater adventure, and Duck Lake, the world’s last comedic horror-ballet — leads one to expect a certain kind of amusement from the producers of Made in China. But Sir Windsorbach Productions set out to marry “quirkiness and sophistication.” If the songs from Made in China are any indication, they may have achieved it — certainly, there’s more than a little Bacharach-inspired refinement lazing between smiles in this story. Writer/producer Nicholas Weinbach plays a wide-eyed postman who discovers the girl of his dreams (played by the buxom Marisa Gregory) when he attempts to deliver a package to a house that cannot exist. Backed by a live six-piece chamber orchestra conducted by his twin brother, Weinbach and his impossible paramour wind their way through the house, discovering games, toys, and a cast of clever beatnik dolls who prove that childlike enchantment can take us down the road of self-discovery. Which might not be entirely to the liking of a phantasmagoric girlfriend, but it’s bound to be funny.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 1. Continues through Feb. 23, 2013

  • 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.'"
