Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

Fabulous performance by Kathleen Turner & cast. Dark and emotionally gnawing, this play will have you pondering faith and redemption. Kathleen turner plays a recovering alcoholic nun with a dark secret and the addict she is charged with counseling.
Two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee Kathleen Turner triumphantly returns to San Francisco in the most critically-acclaimed performance of her career. A favorite among San Francisco theatre-goers, Turner has previously delighted audiences in such productions as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. And now, Turner brings her most compelling performance to the Curran Theatre for one week only.
When Sister Jamison Connolly (Turner) agrees to sponsor a 19-year-old drug user in an effort to help him combat his addiction, her own faith is ultimately tested. Struggling between the knowledge she possesses as a rehabilitation counselor and a woman of religious conviction, she begins to question her belief in miracles and whether people can find the courage to change. High explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility.
