I was very excited for this show, instead it was long, drawn out, and belabored points which unfortunately were simply boring rather than humorous moments made new. This play did inspire a first for me, to walk out by intermission.
The brainchild of playwright, actor and teacher Aaron Landsman, and Obie-award winners, director Mallory Catlett and director, designer and performer Jim Findlay, City Council Meeting ponders what draws participants to the process in the first place, and then teases apart the inherent drama and inadvertent comedy that occurs when individuals with conflicting goals congregate in a single room and attempt to get their way.
The San Francisco edition focuses in on the city’s rich history as a center for activism, and is created through collaboration with a diverse range of San Franciscans including students, politicians, activists and artists. One featured collaborator is local choreographer and director Erika Chong Shuch, and it comes to the stage with the continued and much valued support of Intersection for the Arts.
About the Ticket Supplier: Z Space StudioFounded in 1993 by David Dower, the Z Space Studio has become one of the nation's leading laboratories for the development of new voices, new works and new directions in American theater.
By creating a space where all types of artistic development can occur side by side, the Z Space has become what Berkeley Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Tony Taccone describes as "a virtual bastion of creativity, a bubbling cauldron of new work, and a safe haven for unfettered creative expression."
Given the nature of development as a "behind the scenes" endeavor, the Studio's impact is often invisible to the general public. However, whether they know it or not, over 100,000 people across the country experience theater from artists that developed at the Studio through our three main programs (Word for Word Performing Arts Company, Z Plays Development, and Youth Arts).
The Z Space employs hundreds of artists each year in the process of developing new works -- creating work for a diverse audiences in fields as varied as solo performance, ensemble theater, puppetry, acrobatics, dance, and multimedia production.
