Show up on time! It's a short enough show that late comers (and there were many) are distracting!

Freddy and Me

Written and performed by Bryan Curtiss White

Directed by Nick Pappas

If somebody told you that you reminded them of Freddy Krueger, what would you think? This question is at the center of Freddy and Me, a one-man piece in which Bryan Curtiss White tries to figure out what people mean when they tell him he reminds them of a homicidal maniac. Identity, he finds, is a difficult topic to understand. How much of who he is and what he does is really intentional? At what point does his identity become wrapped up in the ideas that others have about him? With characteristic humor and thoughtfulness, he recounts incidents from his life that have helped to define who he is, while simultaneously examining them through the lens of understanding what it means to be _ Freddy and Me_.

Bryan Curtiss White (Writer/Performer) is working towards the completion of an M.A. in Drama from SFSU. In October of this year, he was pleased to contribute a scene and much of the music for the play Money, which was based on a scenario written for the WPA during the 1930s. Bryan’s work as an actor has been primarily in the San Diego area where he has appeared in the Welk Resort Theatre’s Fiddler on the Roof and White Christmas, Stone Soup Theatre’s The Cradle Will Rock, and Cygnet Theatre’s Arcadia.

About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of San Francisco Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, San Francisco Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, San Francisco Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
