STEVEN & MEGAN IN “MEGAN & STEVEN PRESENT A WORLD PREMIERE BY STEVEN & MEGAN
As the play gets better, the actors get worse! This free, 40-minute theatrical cocktail pours ambition into a shaker over ice, then adds a splash of fiasco. San Francisco Theater Pub presents the duo of Megan Cohen & Steven Westdahl, award-winning artists and a real-life couple, who will endeavor to share their new magnum opus with a twist… or a chaser. They’ve got a brand-new five-minute play, and they’ll do it over and over until they get it right. However, as they bring in elements to realize their theatrical vision, adding props, costumes, and even “acting” to their play, the two will also be taking shots and chugging pints, reducing their ability to make it through the performance of their mercilessly challenging script. Will art survive this high-stakes drinking contest? Will the artists? Join them for an evening, and see if you can keep up.
The show plays four performances at PIANOFIGHT (144 Taylor Street):
Monday, April 20 @ 8:00pm
Tuesday, April 21 @ 8:00pm
Monday, April 27 @ 8:00pm
Tuesday, April 28 @ 8:00pm
As always, admission is FREE, with a $5 donation suggested at the door (and remember to show your appreciation to our hosts at the bar!) No reservations required, but we suggest getting there early.
Come early to PIANOFIGHT to get a good seat, and try out their great new dinner menu!
See you at the Pub!
