After impressive performances in New York City and elsewhere, City Council Meeting, a unique and inventive piece of theater, comes to Z Space. The creators of the show have taken a mundane piece of civic life -- a city council meeting -- and transformed it into a bold, chaotic and funny exploration of participatory democracy. And the best part is, you get to be part of the show! At each performance, audience members have the option to participate as councilors, speakers or supporters. Or, if you'd rather just watch, that's okay. They need bystanders, too. Democracy in action may not be pretty -- but just try to turn away. Learn More

What a charming show! Missed the first 5 min of The Tortoise & the Hare, but that was just warm up in my opinion for the main event: The Ugly Duckling! Just adorable with plenty of humor, clever stagings (like the simple but fun pond scene where you can see both "above" and "below" water at the same time), and some "action" sequences for the little ones. Really awesome getting to see the puppeteers in their puppets/costumes at the end when they bring the lights up. Bring your kids, or a friend who's a kid (like me!). Only downsides (so minus 1 star): tickets weren't cheap, even w/the Goldstar discount, and the JCCSF charges another $8 for event parking. Consider yourself warned!
