So much theatre, so little time. Here are some great picks to see out this season — if you can get to them!
The term the show must go on rings very true with me these days as I am temporarily not very mobile and it seems I am missing tons of great theatre.
The Hand That Rocks The Crawford is a return production, playing Feb. 16-March 4, in which amazingly talented Matthew Martin brings his spoof of Joan Crawford and other femme fatale movie characters to life along with an ensemble of San Francisco’s most talented performers to SF Oasis. Tickets at www.sfoasis.com.
Getting There, a world premiere play by Dipika Guha, seems like a great adventure you’ll have to take on my behalf. Two women venture to Paris together, but have a falling out, only to reconnect after meeting other interesting characters down their separate paths. Great season ahead at the New Conservatory Theatre Center www.nctcsf.org.
Another world premiere is happening at the San Francisco Playhouse and their production of Cashing Out in which a family worries about their daughter’s gambling addiction which is hard to get away from as its on the Indian reservation they all live. Check it out at www.sfplayhouse.org.
Another exciting return to a full-fledged season is the Left Coast Theatre Company — the leaders in LGBTQ+ anthology programming. While they also do complete productions with two acts, there are not a lot of venues or sources for short plays to find a home and Left Coast is just the spot.
Starting Feb. 17, LCTC brings us Between the Sheets, their latest collection of short theatre pieces with a company of great and diverse talent — whether actor, writer or director. Get your tickets at www.lctc-sf.org.
