Overall, two thumbs up. A sensitive and compassionate play about a modern day couple's struggle with new families and old friends. Daring performances with a sexy cast, Gabrielle Patacsil, Leah Shesky and Andy Strong. And a realistic performance from 12-year-old Nandi Drayton as the center of a world close to falling apart. Herman's script was engaging and McNulty's direction was clean and clever. PianoFight took a good risk with this production. Also the Alcove theatre is comfortable and unique. Sit back, drink a beer and watch the drama unfold.
About the Ticket Supplier: PianoFight Productions
PIANOFIGHT was formed by Rob Ready, Dan Williams and Kevin Fink in 2007. After completing a $1.2 million fundraising campaign, 10% of which was crowd-funded through the largest Theater Kickstarter for a New Live Performance Venue ever, PianoFight has completed its home at 144 Taylor Street in San Francisco. The venue contains three rehearsal spaces, two black box theaters (42-seater and a 92-seater), and a full restaurant and bar with a cabaret stage. Since its inception, PianoFight has successfully managed venues (Off-Market Theater Complex); created the largest audience-judged playwriting competition in the country (ShortLived); instigated a fully-scripted, choose-your-own-adventure play series (FORKING!); recklessly invited audiences to Throw Rotten Veggies at the Actors Nights; formed two critically acclaimed sketch comedy groups (Mission CTRL and Chardonnay); toured the coast of California (Endless Weekend Tour I & II); created a surf rock band (Das Haus Band) and a soul band (PianoFight Music Department); launched a film department that retains corporate and artistic clients; and built a three-man producing team into a 48-member company of artists while staying true to its mission of producing New Work by New Artists ™. We’ve also consumed vast oceans of beer and have had one hell of a time in the process. PianoFight is committed to making 144 Taylor St. San Francisco’s next landmark entertainment venue. PianoFight was voted the Best Theater Company in San Francisco in SF Weekly‘s 2009 Readers’ Poll, and the Best Up-And-Coming Theater Company in the City by SF Weekly in 2011. In 2012, PianoFight won the SF Bay Guardian’s Goldie Award for Theater.
