With the book Lean In making a splash in 2013, the topic of women and success is just as fresh and current as it was in the 1980s, when Caryl Churchill wrote Top Girls in response to Margaret Thatcher's ambitious rise to power in the UK. Called "the best British play ever from a woman dramatist" by The Guardian, Top Girls follows Marlene, a ruthlessly ambitious career woman, who has seized every opportunity to make it to the top. In the play's famous opening scene, she celebrates her big promotion at a surreal dinner party whose guests are famous women from history and myth. After this celebratory moment, Top Girls changes course to show the cost of Marlene's ambitions. When a young relative shows up unannounced at her workplace, Marlene must examine what the next generations of women will gain (or lose) from the choices she made in her rush to the top. Learn More

Good show. Talented performers, and the music and the drama and story are so good. Very engaging. A very satisfying evening. [note that online there is indication of food available, but this is limited to wine and coffee and cookies and chips]
A divinely decadent experience! Independent Cabaret Productions and Shakespeare at Stinson will present a startling rendition of Tony-award-winning musical Cabaret, directed by Hector Correa. In the Larkspur Cafe Theatre, 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. Food and refreshments are available, so pull up a seat at a cabaret table and enjoy the show! Our old friends Sally, Cliff, and the Emcee will all be there. Hopefully you will be too!
