Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

I think the problem may well have been an age-related question. I am 48, my partner is 54. The themes that were dealt with in the first two skits seemed specifically aimed at younger audiences. They just didn't resonate with us. I can't tell...continued

Description

Shelton Studios presents SoloHouse, a new monthly showcase like nothing the Bay Area has seen before. The production is presented and directed by W. Kamau Bell, one of San Francisco’s finest comedians, as well as the director of long-running solo shows. Bell’s comic background brings a level of energy previously unseen in solo performance venues. Each SoloHouse showcase will feature an outstanding mix of solo performers including Beth Lissick, Bucky Sinister, Leslie Beam, Bruce Pachtman (whose previous solo show “don’t make me look too psychotic” ran for 81 weeks), Julia Jackson, Lisa Marie Rollins and Enzo Lombard. All of these acclaimed artists will be presenting dynamic new works.
