Friday night, I loaded up on antihistamines and went to see David Greenspan’s DEAD MOTHER, OR SHIRLEY NOT ALL IN VAIN at Traveling Jewish Theater (in a co-production with Thick Description).
This show is a blast. It takes pretty much everything there is in theater and jams it into one play. Farce, Greek theater, staged readings, monologues, dialogue, gender-bending, impossible stage directions, someone dressed as a sperm whale.
The acting in particular rocks. Deb Fink, Gabe Marin, Liam Vincent, Dena Martinez, Louis Parnell, Corey Fischer. That’s a powerhouse of SF actors, if you ask me.
