I'm new to City Lights this year and have attended two shows. I enjoyed the first immensely and Compleat Female Stage Beauty sealed the deal. I'm a fan. The price:enjoyment ratio of this venue is hard to beat.

Compleat Female Stage Beauty

by Jeffrey Hatcher

Directed by Amanda Folena

Embracing a period of British history that’s ripe with gender and social intrigue, Edward Kynaston, the most famous portrayer of female roles in seventeenth-century London, is brought to ruin when King Charles II changes the law to allow women to act. His journey embarks down a road of revenge and self-awareness as Kynaston strives to take his place on the stage once again.
