Theater Around The Bay: GUESS WHO!

guesswho-2 copy

Yes, it’s that time of year again- the time when, for one night only, San Francisco Theater Pub brings us all together, to celebrate the Great American Tradition of singing songs about the holidays.

This year’s special selection of carols comes from a song-book renowned for its catchy pop tunes and ability to corrupt the Baby Boomer generation. It’s got everything you want at the holidays: child molestation, murder, insanity, prostitution, disaffected youth, repressed family tragedy, denial, adultery, regret, and hey, did we mention child molestation? Oh, hey, there are some miracles too. And forgiveness. So, it’s like, actually kind of Christmasy. In a really screwed up, pushing the envelope sort of way.

Here’s Looking At You!

Featuring the vocal talents of Samuel Cohen, Juliana Lustenader, Kyle McReddie, Carl Lucania, Duncan Wold, Clare Prowse, Stuart Bousel, Amanda Ortmayer, James Grady, Charles Lewis III, Marissa Skudlarek; and the musical skills of Mark Dietrich, Jessica Igrashi, James Grady, Cory Clar, Colin Williams and Steven Grady.

ONE NIGHT ONLY: December 14, 2015 at PianoFight, 8 PM, Free!

Seating is first come, first served so get there early to ensure a seat. As usual, it’s a five dollar suggested donation. Don’t miss it- and be sure to come early (or stay late) and enjoy PianoFight’s full bar and menu!

Theater Around The Bay: Come Out And Support The Lemonade Fund!

Back in December of 2013, the San Francisco Theater Pub hosted the first Lemonade Fund Variety Show, and we’re excited it’s becoming an annual Bay Area tradition!

Frequent Theater Pub collaborator Megan Briggs has been the driving force behind this year’s fundraiser, which is tomorrow night at 8 PM, at our favorite bar: PianoFight!

The incredible line-up includes more Theater Pub veterans, Sara Judge, Juliana Lustenader, as well as Bay Area superstars like Patricia Cotter, Marjorie Crump-Shears, Mark Dietrich, Nick Knave, LaMont Ridgell, Lori Scarlett, Meyl Shaw, Kevin Sonkin,and Dalia Vidor!

The Lemonade Fund is an important and worthy cause that’s been “Making Lemons into Lemonade for Over 20 Years”! It is a confidential resource for theatre practitioners with terminal or life-threatening illnesses who are in need of supplemental financial assistance to improve the quality of their lives as they deal with medical conditions.

Since 2000, Theatre Bay Area has distributed over $100,000 to theatre workers in need through the Lemonade Fund. Much of it is made possible by generous donations by fellow artists. This year’s big event is Tuesday, December 8, at 8 PM at PianoFight (144 Taylor Street) and we’re asking everyone who walks through our doors to drop $20 in the hat. Such a small donation- but if we can get 50 people that’s $1,000! Can’t make the event but want to give? YOU CAN DONATE HERE!
