I have 3 words to describe this play: wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Superb acting, good staging. It was moving but also funny at times. Great directing by Bill English. This play fully deserved the standing ovation we gave it.

Description

The visuals are pure scenic magic and provide extra insight into the artist and his work. — Jean Schiffman, _San Francisco Examiner _

“Not since ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ have I seen a play about art and artists as fascinating and powerful as Lauren Gunderson’s ‘Bauer.’” — Janos Gereben, San Francisco Performing Arts Examiner

“This true story is a work of substantial brilliance.” — Buzzin’ Lee Hartgrave, BeyondChron

“While the 100-minute play needs some finishing touches, it’s still an exquisite exploration of the fickleness of history, the fragility of the artistic impulse and the age of regret.” — Karen D’Souza, San Jose Mercury News

“This world premiere from the prolific Bay Area playwright is a swirl of hurts, hopes, regrets, love, hate, and forgiveness that finds an order that Bauer himself sought for his art.” — Richard Dodds, The Bay Area Reporter

About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
