Closing Night For Zombies!

Don’t miss your last chance (this time around) to see LOVE IN THE TIME OF ZOMBIES!

We were packed last night and expect to be standing room only again, so get there early, have some sushi and some libations, and watch the best little rom com Zom dram that San Francisco has to offer!

The show starts at 8, but doors are open as early as 5:30, with the pop up kitchen usually in and serving by 6. The show is free, with a suggested five dollar donation.

Costumes encouraged! As it is closing night!

See you there!

The Zombies Return For Their Final Two Performances!

Don’t Miss LOVE IN A TIME OF ZOMBIES, by Kirk Shimano, playing tonight and tomorrow at 8 PM at the Cafe Royale!

Look what the Performant had to say about us:

Speaking of enabling, in SF Theatre Pub’s production of Kirk Shimano’s “Love in the Time of Zombies,” middle-aged mad scientist Melinda (Maggie Ziomek) traps four bumbling zombie-slayers in her isolated cabin in order to feed them to her very own test subject zombie, Clara, whom she may secretly love.

The premise behind her madness is that zombies crave not human flesh but human emotion, and by “feeding” Clara the four “major” human emotions as embodied by the clueless band of four, Clara might become human again. According to Shimano, these emotions are anger, fear, lust, and regret, which probably says more about Shimano’s emotional state than that of all humanity, but regardless, watching the experiment unfold, including a very funny lesson on zombie vernacular, does give the oddience the opportunity to empathize with the unique plight of the zombiefied, who frequently come off as far more likable than the living, despite their limited vocabulary (“me want eat you fuzzy”).

And at least with zombies, you know that they want you for your mind, so really, what’s not to love?

Indeed- what’s not to love?

Zombies Gets A Stellar First Review From The Idiolect!

Check it out! We got a great review in the Idiolect!

Don’t miss your chance to see this funny, return-to-life affirmative zom-rom-com! We have three more performances including tonight, starting at 8 PM!

As an added bonus, our favorite cuisine collaborators, Big May’s Hide Away Blues BBQ, will also be there to tempt you with fabulous lobster mac’n’cheese, BBQ pork sandwiches, and bourbon soaked cupcakes.

See you at the bar!

We Love Hide Away BBQ

Those of you who make it out to the Monday night shows of Theater Pub have probably met, and grown to love May, the proprietor of Big May’s Hide Away Blues BBQ, the people who bring us lobster mac and cheese, giant plates of peach cobbler, and booze soaked cupcakes. Honestly, we can’t say enough about this amazing woman, and then just when it can’t get better, she themes her menu to our show and shows up to the opening night of LOVE IN A TIME OF ZOMBIES wearing a wig and scary eye make-up.

You can’t scare us, May. You can only make us love you in a new way.

Is there anything better than being greeted with enthusiasm, delicious lobster mac n’cheese and the booziest pulled pork sandwich in the world? It’s sprayed with bourbon. SPRAYED WITH BOURBON.

On non-Theater Pub nights, you can find May at Hide Away Blues BBQ at 457 Hyde Street, but it’s a science fact that the unbeatable combination is BBQ + beer + Theater, so make sure you help us keep her at Theater Pub by coming hungry whenever you come on Monday nights. And if you come on Tuesdays, don’t despair: there’s a pop-up sushi restaurant to complete your evening!

Be sure to come see LOVE IN A TIME OF ZOMBIES, with four more performances this month- tonight, Monday the 22nd, and Monday and Tuesday the 29th and 30th of October!

The Zombie Invasion Begins Tonight!

Don’t miss Kirk Shimano’s LOVE IN A TIME OF ZOMBIES, directed by Claire Rice, starting tonight at 8 PM, only at the Cafe Royale!

Featuring Tony Cirimele, Alisha Ehrlich, Neil Higgins, Tonya Narvaez, Paul Rodrigues and Maggie Ziomek.

Love in the Time of Zombies is a new rom-zom-com (making it’s world premiere!) about four friends- a neurotic gay boy, his roommate, and their accidental dates- trapped in a zombie-surrounded cabin with a mysterious woman who may be a mad scientist looking to use the survivors as lab experiments. It’s a journey to the edge of undeath that challenges the core of what makes us human- and what makes us a zombie. Romantic, comedic, sexy, this play may in fact be the only queer feel-good zombie Armageddon play in the world… which could be ending soon, so see it while you can!

We’ll also be joined by our friends Hide Away BBQ, so come hungry!

Admission is FREE, with a five dollar suggested donation!

They’re coming…
