Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

Again this is one of my favorite small theaters. I love this space and I always enjoy their shows. Bus stop was good and enjoyable. More serious than I had anticipated. The cast was talented. Some spots seemed a bit slow yet that is how it was written or directed. Also, at times, I felt like a few of the actors were reading their lines versus really acting them. They did not do it throughout the play, just in certain sections every now and then. Excellent set and costumes as always. A nice evening out at truly one of the best theaters in the bay.
A play by William Inge. Directed by Michael Ryken.
Long before The Breakfast Club, there was Bus Stop. It’s winter on the Great Plains, and a snowstorm near Kansas City has stranded a group of bus passengers at a local diner. During their weather-enforced overnight layover, the diverse group of strangers develop short-lived but revealing relationships as they learn about each other—and about themselves.
