Review: THE CHER SHOW at Curran Theatre

by Steve Murray - June 20, 2024

The Cher Show blows through town faster than the multitude of Bob Mackie costume changes and we’re better off for it. Even die-hard Cher fanatics had a challenging time mustering excitement for this tired jukebox musical, settling for the flash and cheese of 60’s style comic vignettes rather than de...

There are few things more glorious than over 300 voices raised in perfect harmony. Since 1978 the SFGMC has been a voice for uplifting the LGBTQIA+ community through times of great sorrow and joy. Persevering in the ugly face of intolerance and persecution, the chorus inspired a worldwide choral mov...

Review: GHOST OF KING at Oakland Theater Project

by Kelly Rogers Flynt - June 09, 2024

In a time where MLK is memorialized on street corners nationwide and with an an...

Review: COMPANY at Orpheum Theatre

by Steve Murray - June 09, 2024

What a mess – the characters I mean. Sondheim’s original Tony-winning play examines both the merit and harsh realities of relationships as seen through the perspective of a detached, intimacy avoiding individual. They’re all delightfully dysfunctional, their relationships messy, beautifully mirrorin...

Review: DOUBT: A PARABLE at Altarena Playhouse

by Kelly Rogers Flynt - June 03, 2024

One thing is for sure, Altarena Playhouse has a hit on its hands with DOUBT. Thoughtful, engaging, and provocative, the show is a masterpiece of details. In a world where some things should be black and white, DOUBT plants the tiniest seed of uncertainty that grows to envelope the entire story. You’...

Review: EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE at Ray Of Light Theatre

by Steve Murray - June 03, 2024

Who doesn’t like a good coming of age story, better yet a LGBTQ coming out story to boot? Mix a catchy pop/rock score, a delightfully innocent 16-year-old schoolboy, and some fabulous drag, and you have the makings of a hit show tailor-made for San Francisco’s audiences. Based on a true story and th...

Review: THE LEHMAN TRILOGY at American Conservatory Theatre

by Steve Murray - May 30, 2024

A fresh off the boat Jewish immigrant from Bavaria stands in awe of the musical box that in New York City in 1884. All he can repeat is Baruch Hashem (Blessed be God) and is amused when an immigration officer changes his name so easily from Chaim to Henry. This man is Henry Lehman who, along with hi...
