After a successful grassroots fundraising effort, SFMT fans rallied to underwrite the SFMT's 54th season. This summer SFMT is doing something different. Within a larger musical/comedic frame, OIL & WATER is actually two shorter plays - CRUDE INTENTIONS and DEAL WITH THE DEVIL - each stylistically unique but topically linked and musically interwoven. The plays challenge the dangerous energy practices of both corporations and the rest of us.
CRUDE INTENTIONS and DEAL WITH THE DEVIL - both written by Pat Moran and Adolfo Mejia. Music & lyrics for both shows are by Pat Moran. The shows are directed by SFMT alumnus Joan Mankin, with Lisa Hori-Garcia as assistant director. Both one act original musicals feature two Mime Troupe stalwarts Velina Brown and Lisa Hori-Garcia. They are joined by returning Rotimi Agbabiaka and first-time trouper Hugo E Carbajal.
