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

In my opinion this play was very emotional. Intense highs and lows. One minute you are laughing, the next you are almost in tears.
The trumpet player was very unique and interacted with the cast in a playful way. The cast for this performance was more than believable and you could tell they melded well together. Their chemistry was intense.
The staff at the venue (Counter Pulse) was very friendly and I would go back and see another show there.
There were no long waits and the show started on time.
Little things I liked about this venue:
You can purchase wine & bring it in with you
Friendly House Manager & Box Office Mgr
Comfortable seating, you choose your own seats
Sound & Lighting were excellent
No long waits or lines
Recycling for cups
The music in the lobby & in the theater was perfect. Made for a very pleasant evening

Rapid Descent’s debut show Skin Tight features three performers, two actor/dancers and a trumpet player. Equal parts memory play, contemporary love story, and timeless drama, Gary Henderson’s script is a spare and honest narrative about an enduring romance. Kissing, fist fights, arguments, and silences find their place in this production as the cast plays with an athleticism of both the heart and body, and reveal the bare essence of Henderson’s touching text.
Visceral, athletic and passionate, Rapid Descent’s _Skin Tight _promises a multi-disciplinary tour-de-force that pushes the boundaries of theatrical storytelling. Directed by Megan Finlay. Featuring Beth Deitchman, Nathaniel Justiniano and Aaron Priskorn.
Rapid Descent are a new San Francisco company led by Artistic Director Megan Finlay, that creates work that combines theater, dance and live music.
