Located in a 70-year-old former-vaudeville theater house, Brava (note the feminine ending) is a "professional arts organization" dedicated to "celebrating the intersection of feminism and multiculturalism that ignites social change and builds community." Diverse audiences and national recognition make Brava a paragon of San Francisco culture.
High camp, tall wigs, thin plot-lines and dense punnery characterize "Beach Blanket Babylon", the 37-year-old show running at Club Fugazi. Fans of outrageous--in the grin-inducing sense of the word--musical theater should be delighted.
Piano music, jazz, cabaret, sketch comedy and musical theatre are just of the fare you might find on any given night at the Eureka Theatre in San Francisco in the Embarcadero. Casual, cozy atmosphere, cheap drinks, and great performers strongly recommend the Eureka Theatre for lovers of live, human entertainment.
A cozy, little theatre (seats around 50-60) in the Tenderloin that lets you bring your own drinks--how much better can it get? Serious drama, magic shows, and other, more "zombified" productions compose just a small sample of what the Exit Theatre has to offer. Quality actors and a cool setting make for a great night on the town.
For more than 40 years the non-profit Intersection for the Arts has pursued its mission of using art to foster positive social change. Founded by Vietnam War objectors and socially-conscious church groups, the intimate theatre space (consisting of about 60 seats) hosts a diverse array of music, performing art, drama and gallery installations, in addition to a number of outreach programs designed to encourage artistic production in the community.
Nitin Sawhney is one of the most distinctive and versatile musical voices alive. Firmly established as a world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer, and cultural pioneer, Sawhney has become a latter-day Renaissance man with his contributions to music, film, video games, dance, and theatre. An acclaimed flamenco guitarist and classical/ jazz pianist, he has worked with a host of celebrated artists including Paul McCartney and Sting. This rare U.S. appearance mixes South Asian musical influences with a variety of other genres such as electronica and jazz. Sawhney presents an intimate trio that gave their debut performance on the heralded radio show, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
