The Beehive, directly next door, has great food and drink...a little pricey but perfect for a night out on the town.

Very interesting and well done. The staging was amazing and the actors did well with their characters. Not an easy play to do convincingly.

Great show, very moving subject matter. I enjoyed the interesting staging. The actor who played Don White was phenomenal. At times, there was so much going on that it was difficult to focus on the characters' stories and there were actors...continued

I tht it was fantastic, clearly touched on sensetive social issues, play kept moving and kept our interest throughout.
only complaint was at one point because of location of actors we were craning our necks aroudn to see.

Description

Emily Mann, playwright

Elaine Vaan Hogue, director

A brilliant portrayal of the Dan White trial after the 1978 assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay city supervisor Harvey Milk of San Francisco. Renowned playwright Mann tells the story in a provocative and multilayered way, posing as many questions as answers about a tragic chapter in the city’s transition to its current political and social climate.
