This was amazing! We are visiting San Francisco and didn't even know this beautiful theater existed! This is our first Gold star experience and we had great seats. Bebe Neuwirth was fantastic (as usual). We would use this site again and...continued

Here Lies Jenny

, New York’s smash theatrical event starring two-time Tony and Emmy Award winner Bebe Neuwirth, conceived and directed by Roger Rees, featuring choreography by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, with music direction by Leslie Stifelman.

San Francisco audiences will remember Bebe Neuwirth for her outstanding performance in ACT’s THREE PENNY OPERA. Her stage career includes acclaimed performances on Broadway in CHICAGO, FOSSE, DAMN YANKEES, among many others, as well as her Emmy-Award winning performance on television’s CHEERS and FRASIER, as Dr. Lilith Crane. She is currently starring in NBC’s hit series, LAW AND ORDER: TRIAL BY JURY.

Here Lies Jenny

features the music of Kurt Weill with the lyrics of Bertolt Brecht, Roger Fernay, Ira Gershwin, Langston Hughes, Alan Jay Lerner, Maurice Magre, Ogden Nash, Franz Werfel and Kurt Weill. In this musical pastiche, performed by Ms. Neuwirth, three actors and a pianist, a one-time saloon singer at the end of the line arrives at a bar that, like her, has seen better days, where she finds herself singing along to the music playing – the soundtrack, strangely enough, of her life. Searching for something, someone, she seduces and rejects the bar denizens in a riveting performance that won critical acclaim in New York.
