Reflections on Single Parenthood as a Child & Adult

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

Raising a child alone is a struggle; raising multiple children alone is an odyssey. Brian Copeland knows this better than most — because he’s experienced it from both sides. In 1979, Copeland’s mother died suddenly, leaving him and four siblings in the care of his 57-year-old grandmother to raise on her own. 22 years later, Brian finds himself in the same spot when a divorce leaves him as the sole provider for his three children. In this reading of Copeland’s new play Grandma & Me at the Marsh San Francisco MainStage Theater, the author compares and contrasts the trials and triumphs of single parenting in the 1970s and the 2000s, all while trying to answer the question of what it truly means to be a father.

Dwight Yoakam: Grammy-Winning Country Singer

Buy Tickets $25.50 - $39.50 $39.50 - $69.50

The genius of Dwight Yoakam lies in the power of his appeal, a force that attracts serious rock ‘n’ rollers (he started out opening for punk bands) to country music diehards (Johnny Cash called him his “favorite male artist”). What unites these groups — which also include hipsters, honky-tonkers and roots rockers — is Yoakam’s maverick blend of country, rock, Americana, pop and soul. He almost single-handedly saved country music in the ‘80s, his “cowpunk” sound rescuing a genre that had grown too slick. He has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and he’s a 21-time nominated, multiple Grammy winner. Don’t miss Dwight Yoakam in concert at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga. Alejandro Escovedo opens the show.

The compelling new drama Archduke tells the story of three young men who, with nothing left to lose, join Serbia’s secret military society on the eve of World War I. The destitute young men follow an unlikely path to terrorism in the name of Serbian nationalism. The deeper they find themselves in the organization, the more they learn about each other — and the closer the tale parallels the bizarro politics of today.

“Water on Mars? Not impressed. Baywatch on Mars? Impressed.” That’s the kind of endearing absurdity comedian Michael Ian Black is known to tweet out regularly. He’s been cracking up cult comedy-lovers since the early ‘90s on MTV’s influential sketch show The State and went on to star in Comedy Central’s Another Period and films like Wet Hot American Summer, This is 40 and Reno 911!: Miami. He’s also hosted game shows and podcasts, deadpanned on countless episodes of VH1’s I Love the… retro series, written screenplays and children’s books and even collaborated with Meghan McCain to co-author America, You Sexy Bitch. Black’s signature stand-up style finds him flitting from witty topical humor to flat-out silliness, all while keeping a perfectly straight face.

We sing, as we have for 40 years, about the joys of the kingdom, especially as they may be found on Earth. The Hebrew tradition says that Yahweh told Moses to take off his shoes, for “this is holy ground.” The African-American spiritual assures us “My God is a Rock,” and composers from Hassler to Victoria, Palestrina to Dufay have found musical comfort and inspiration from texts such as “Upon this Rock shall I build my church” or “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord.” The great English carol says, “King Jesus hath a garden.” Ours is filled with music from the Spanish Renaissance to Anglican chant, from Hebrew psalms to early American hymns. Keep your shoes on if you like, but know that we will be on holy ground.

The program includes a world premiere of a new work by Dresher as well as existing Duo repertoire. The instruments were created by Paul Dresher, Daniel Schmidt and the pioneering electronic music inventor Don Buchla. After the concert, the audience will be invited on-stage to play the instruments and interact with the performers. Performing live on a unique set of huge invented musical instruments, the electro-acoustic duo of acclaimed composer, performer & instrument inventor Paul Dresher and percussionist-extraordinaire Joel Davel consistently generates excitement and wonder! Playing the 15-foot Quadrachord, the 10-foot Hurdy Grande (both invented and built by Dresher and Daniel Schmidt) and Don Buchla’s magical Marimba Lumina, Dresher and Davel create lush textures and rhythmically propulsive grooves that fascinate the ear and the eye. Exploring unique sound-colors and enhanced by live digital looping, this electro-acoustic duo creates complex sonic layers as rich as a full orchestra. Audiences are sonically immersed and visually engaged by both the sight and sound of these sculptural inventions and by the energetic and imaginative choreography of Dresher and Davel’s physical interaction with the instruments and with one another.

Is there a more drop-dead romantic song than Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova’s “Falling Slowly?” You might say yes, but then you might have to come to blows to defend that position against the song’s legion of devotees. It did, after all, inspire an Oscar-winning movie (also starring the real-life musical duo) and a multiple-Tony-winning Broadway musical and win a Grammy Award. Once the musical is a poignant ode to love, longing and the power of art, and now it makes its Bay Area regional premiere at The Gateway Theatre courtesy of 42nd Street Moon. A talented cast of actor-musicians play their own instruments as they bring to life Hansard and Irglova’s bittersweet songs, and the beautiful story they inspired.

Leave it to the pull-no-punches, politically charged mind of John Leguizamo to dream up Kiss My Aztec!, a fresh, irreverent musical comedy take on the arrival of the conquistadors. Elizabethan dialect collides with modern slang set to a mashup of salsa, hip-hop and funk for this tale of an unlikely pair of Aztecs who mount a scrappy uprising against their Spanish oppressors — and somehow get entangled in the dysfunctional bickering of the Spanish viceroy’s family. If you loved Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons (nominated for Tony’s Best Play), you won’t want to miss his latest work at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Please note that John Leguizamo won’t be performing in Kiss My Aztec! — other fantastic actors will be starring in this uproarious new musical.

New Play Debut: Anna Considers Mars

Buy Tickets $16.50 - $24 $31.50 - $46.50

Things aren’t going great for Anna, or the rest of the planet for that matter. As executive director of the flailing Center for the Preservation of Uncharismatic Species, she has a front row seat to a global mass extinction event. As her mother’s caretaker, she’s reminded daily of our inevitable decline. And though a ubiquitous augmented-reality platform renders a pretty face on it all, the flood waters keep rising, the food supply keeps dwindling, and there is a pervasive sense that humanity’s best days are behind us. In this context, the worldwide search for the first Mars colonists becomes a source of great hope. Anna is hopeful that there, with a human species attempting to start over, she can start over too. Now she just has to get her hands on a golden ticket. Ruben Grijalva’s Anna Considers Mars was co-commissioned by PlayGround and Planet Earth Arts and originally developed as part of the 2018 PlayGround Festival. It receives its world premiere at San Francisco’s Potrero Stage.

Rhinoceros: An Absurdist Masterpiece

Buy Tickets $17 - $66 $22 - $110

In the opening moments of Eugene Ionesco’s masterpiece of absurdist satire, a rhinoceros rampages through a village square. At the local café, people argue over what they saw. Was it really a rhino, or just fake news? As the eccentric villagers shed refined façades for hides and horns — smashing windows and crushing flowerbeds — rumpled everyman Berenger faces a desperate choice: take a stand against the armored brutes or join the mindless herd? This outrageously comedic story of a civilized community shifting from defiance to compliance is chillingly resonant and riotously funny. From Tony Award–winning director Frank Galati comes an all-new adaptation of this wickedly entertaining show about power, conformism and mass culture. Don’t miss Rhinoceros at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater.

Buy Tickets $20 - $37.50 $40 - $50

Tom Lehrer epitomized the era of satirical humor in the 1950s and 1960s, writing wickedly funny songs that took the country by storm. “The Masochism Tango,” “The Vatican Rag,” “Pollution,” “Send the Marines” and “National Brotherhood Week” are just a few, dishing humor on delicate subjects like race relations, nuclear weapons, gun rights, free speech and religious freedom. Today, most of these songs feel like they were written last week, not last century! Laugh and think in a whole new way as marvelously talented local actors at San Francisco’s Shelton Theater take you into Mr. Lehrer’s slightly off-center world. Friday night performances are the famous sing-alongs where the audience is invited to join in singing most of the terrific lyrics!

Brian Copeland returns to The Marsh for three special performances of his hit show Not a Genuine Black Man. The longest-running solo show in San Francisco history, this is the hilarious and poignant autobiographical story about Copeland’s childhood. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. Congressional hearings were held. The next year, eight-year-old Copeland and his African-American family moved in. Not a Genuine Black Man is a hilarious and insightful look at Bay Area history, and at the many ways in which our upbringings make us who we are.
