Thursday, February 2 | CABARET by Kander and Ebb – A divinely decadent experience! Independent Cabaret Productions and Shakespeare at Stinson present this startling rendition of Tony-award-winning musical Cabaret, directed by Hector Correa. In the Young Performers Theatre at Fort Mason, the production will use an intimate space much like what Christopher Isherwood, author of the memoir upon which Cabaret was based, saw in pre-World-War-II Berlin. The audience won’t just be watching a show; they’ll be experiencing the dark, decadent world of Weimar Germany, a strange locale on the border of drama and burlesque, a place on the edge of civilization and of humanity itself. Our old friends Sally, Cliff, and the Emcee will all be there. Hopefully you will be too!

Friday, January 27 | Falsettoland – Fledgling Asian-American theatre company STIRFRY THEATRE is proud to present, as its San Francisco debut, a staged concert version of William Finn’s & James Lapine’s masterpiece, FALSETTOLAND, exploring the universal themes of love, loss, and family. This poignant and rarely performed one-act, about a family facing the specter of AIDS in the the early ’80s, was called “an achingly articulate musical” by The New York Times and a “burst of genius” by Time Magazine.

International Museum Day

Been to your local museum lately? Well, tomorrow might be a great day to do it because it’s International Museum Day. What’s that you ask? Well, International Museum Day was founded in 1977 and since then it’s been an opportunity to increase public awareness of museums and the important role they play in our communities.

International Museum Day is celebrated sometime around May 18 and I’ve put together a short list of events that are happening in museums around the country through the end of the month. The theme for this year’s Museum Day is “Museum and Memory” and focuses on how museums preserve memories and tell stories about our cultural heritage and history.

Here’s some great events happening across the country. Get out there and experience the collective cultural memory that museum’s provide and help keep your local museum alive and kicking at the same time. Read the rest of this entry »
