This February, Theater Pub invites you to emerge from stasis to travel through the vast expanse, seeking music, violence, and romance in the outer limits of the cosmos in H/D: A Symphonic Romance in Space. This Theater Pub transmission explores instinct, evolution, and technology through a reading of original monologues and adapted text from 2001: A Space Odyssey, set to a live soundtrack. Actors will trade roles throughout the night and audience members can throw their name in a space helmet from which we’ll draw a limited number of names to fill out the cast, making every performance unique.
This transmission brought to you by San Francisco Theater Pub, through the mind of Tonya Narvaez and cinematic musical stylings of Storm Door. Storm Door is, at its core, a band formed out of the mutual fandom between Matt Herman and May Oskan. They describe their music as “Cinematic soundscapes at the altar of analog toneworship. Melodic songspells whose ethereal execution recount the vivid textures of your dearest spacedreams. The optimist’s soundtrack to a dystopian future.” Featuring Meg Trowbridge, Xanadu Bruggers, Andrew Chung, Neil Higgins, Stuart Bousel, and Dan Kurtz.
The show plays three performances:
Monday, February 16, at 8 PM at PIANOFIGHT (144 Taylor Street)
Saturday, February 21, at 2 PM at THE HALL (1028 Market Street)
Monday, February 23, at 8 PM at PIANOFIGHT (144 Taylor Street)
As always, admission is FREE, with a $5 donation suggested at the door. No reservations required, but we suggest getting there early to get a good seat and remember to show your appreciation to our hosts at the bar!
Don’t forget – you can get brunch at THE HALL (including bottomless mimosas) and dinner at PIANOFIGHT!
See you at the Pub!
