The Castro Theatre will transform itself into a saucy bathhouse in celebration of the remarkable career of Tony, Grammy, Emmy and Oscar winner Rita Moreno. Expect ushers in towels, a career highlight reel, a "tappy tribute" by Matthew Martin and a live onstage interview with Moreno. The entire evening will be capped by a rare screening of The Ritz, Terrence McNally's 1976 farce in which Moreno recreates her Tony-winning performance as the wacky and lovable performer Googie Gomez. Hosted by D'Arcy Drollinger, the evening will benefit Let's Kick ASS (AIDS Survivor Syndrome), a grassroots movement of long-term survivors. Learn More

Was getting quite uncomfortable and not a little concerned after her first few songs where her pitches were all over the map and the orchestra easily overpowered her. She sounded frail and unable to sustain any note longer than four beats. Were the monitors not working? The 60's medley of her hits was trite and her lesser known songs were boring. All that being said, she perked up amazingly as the show went on and actually sounded lovely - I found her "la Vie en Rose" charming as well as the poem she read which she had penned while on Eurostar. It was great to hear her old hits when she finally sang them in act II and her rapport w/ the audience was very good. The intermission was long because of inadequate restroom facilities at the Castro - also, the lighting was minimal because the electrical infrastructure of the old theater can't handle more than a couple of 100 watt bulbs - aux power was cabled in from generators in the side alley. The Nassers should invest in upgraded wiring in order to do justice to some more complex production acts if they want to attract them to their glorious theater. It was great fun seeing the old gal in the dowager of S.F. theaters, the Castro. Also fun (as a 55year old) being amidst so many middle-aged and senior, gay men and feeling fairly "young"!
Petula Clark sings at the Castro Theatre. The English singer and international pop superstar is the most successful female solo recording artist in British pop history; she's sold over 70 million records worldwide. She'll sing all her classic hits, including "Downtown," "A Sign of the Times," and "Don't Sleep in the Subway".
