Combined Artform presents The Santaland Diaries in San Francisco. The comedic one-man show based on David Sedaris' essay has been performed by the company every year since 2002. The Santaland Diaries stars David Sinaiko, who was previously nominated for a Critics Circle Award for Best Solo Performance. Sedaris delightfully skewers parents, children, holiday consumerism and even his own cynical protagonist. This hilarious piece captures the true holiday spirit of excitement, stress, wonder, disillusionment, hope, disappointment and humiliation that represents the real experience of this special time of year.

A great version of ASSASSINS - some stunning performances and a very well directed show ,, You need to see this if GOLDSTAR still has some seats left ,,
As Booth, Derrick Silva is convincing and self-righteous granddaddy of all political assassins, providing both inspiration and advice to the misguided that follow in his path.
congrats to the talented cast = Derrick Silva, Michael Scott Wells, Steven Hess, Eliza Leoni, Lisa-Marie Newton, Gregory Sottolano, Danny Cozart, Joel Roster, Alex Rodriguez, Charles Woodson-Parker, Deucalion Martin, Anna Smith, Michael Doppe, Tom Orr and Marisa Cozart. Conductor: David Moschler. Orchestrations by Michael Starobin are lush and lovingly constructed. Directed by Jason Hoover

Ray of Light Theatre, San Francisco’s inimitable non-profit musical theatre company, is pleased to bring Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins to the Bay Area. Bold, original, surreal, disturbing, thought-provoking and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the uttermost controversial musical ever written.
Part vaudeville extravaganza, part exposé and wholly electrifying, this most American of musicals (winner of five Tony® Awards) lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish rollercoaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and, in an intense final scene, inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
Hugely resonant in today's celebrity-obsessed society, the story is peopled with desperate characters intent on making their mark.
