Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

Lynn Ruth Miller is an exceptional teller of stories. With wit and clarity she reminds us that the desire for human connection is universal. Through her stories she underscores the roles that integrity, humor, pain, hope, jealousy, revelation and gratitude play in a lifetime- and that through these qualities we are more similar than not. True talent with simplicity and grace-Lynn Ruth Miller is a show not to be missed.

I was enthralled and touched by her stories. it was like being in your great-aunt's living room, and she was telling you about some of her life. And, by the way, your great-aunt is a phenomenal storyteller! This was a wonderful, unexpected treat.
Lynn Ruth Miller brings Thoughts While Walking the Dog, three storytelling shows to Actors Theater of San Francisco. Each show is a different group of stories about everyone’s power to create his own destiny. These slice of life tales chart Miller’s quest to discover where the enchantment is hidden in the life we live.
Her journey of self-discovery is one each of us must take before we accept who we are and begin to enjoy the role we have chosen as our personal destiny. Her stories are an inspiration and a chuckle about the immense variety of flavors our life offers.
The stories presented in these productions were selected from Thoughts While Walking the Dog and More Thoughts While Walking the Dog, Miller’s acclaimed collection of columns that originally appeared in The Pacifica Tribune. Each show is 50 minutes of laughter and tears seasoned with an unvarnished dose of reality.
November 27, 2010: Farewell to the Tooth Fairy
The first set of stories about the magic in all our lives, filled with laughter and tears, seasoned with an unvarnished dose of reality. This is everyone’s story, old as time and new as tomorrow.
December 4, 2010: Another Side of the Mirror
In this second set of stories Miller makes you laugh and cry with even more hilarious, poignant memories, inspirational vignettes for everyone told by an exceptional story-teller.
December 11, 2010: All About Me
The final set of Miller’s stories digs deeper into her bouts with her eating disorder, her battles with her mother and the glass walls of discrimination she battled alone throughout her life. She triumphed and these stories show you how you too can overcome obstacles that threaten to defeat you.
Lynn Ruth Miller has been published in various fields for forty years. Her writing often deals with feminist issues and appeals to readers who enjoy Laurie Colwin for her ethnic flavor and commentary on the idiosyncrasies of modern life, and Anne Tyler for her slightly out of sync frame of reference.
