The SF Playhouse Presents the West Coast Premiere of SHE STOOPS TO COMEDY, Runs Thru 1/9/2010

Laugh with us this Holiday Season with this hilarious gender-bending romp by one of New York's most innovative writer/performers, David Greenspan.

With multi-layered shenanigans--actress Alexandra Page (Liam Vincent) schemes to woo back her estranged female lover (Sally Clawson) by playing Orlando opposite her lover's Rosalind in a summer-stock production of Shakespeare's As You Like It.

She Stoops to Comedy is an examination and deconstruction of theatrical convention, even the script of She Stoops to Comedy - and, thus, the very lives of the characters in it - is completely a work in progress, open to reinvention, reinterpretation, and even rewriting at the slightest whim. The line between actor and character is blurred, the distinctions between reality and theatricality are eliminated, and the significance of gender and sexual identity explored from practically every conceivable angle.

Featuring; Liam Vincent*, Amy Resnick*, Sally Clawson, Cole Alexander Smith, Carly Cioffi and comedian, Scott Capurro . (*Appear courtesy of Actors Equity).

SHOWTIMES: Tuesday 7pm, Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., plus Saturdays 3p.m. (no show 12/24, 25 or 1/1). Additional 3pm matinees added on Wednesday 12/23, and Sundays 12/27 and 1/3.
