I love going to watch performances at this theater but the first show I watched this year

"Jerusalem" I did not like because it was hard to follow unless you understood the phrases they were using that are not from the states since the show was...continued

Every play was memorable! This made it possible for a very broke but very passionate librarian to see some great theater this year!

Bauer *

Why did he stop? Imprisoned by the Nazis, he sketched on scraps. His fiery love affair with Hilla Rebay (Guggenheim curator) lasted a lifetime. The Guggenheim was built to house his work. Why did the genius that survived all that suddenly stop painting? This is a San Francisco Playhouse commissioned work.    _

_ Seminar *

By Theresa Rebeck** * *

April 29th to June 14th **

  • Five hundred dollars a week for all the abuse you can take. And maybe sex. That’s what four aspiring novelists pay for a ten-week private writing class with the legendary Leonard. It’s a smorgasbord of vicious, and very funny, wordplay, as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy about power, sex, and art.  _

_ Into the Woods *

By James Lapine (book) and Stephen Sondheim (music and lyrics)* * **

June 24th to September 6th *

What happens after Happily Ever After? In Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved musical retelling of the Grimm classics, a parade of familiar folktale figures find their way “Into the Woods” and try to get home before dark.
