Show Me Yours - Songs of Innocence and Experience
"Show Me Yours - Songs of Innocence and Experience" is a rich, nuanced examination of sex and sexuality today - and all the funny, sad, complicated perceptions, emotions and realizations that go with it. The 90-minute musical revue is directed by Ben Randle with music direction by Ben Prince. It features original work by bay area composers and lyricists Anne Nygren Doherty, Paul James Frantz, Jerome Gentes, Richard Hefner, Richard Isen, Richard Jennings, Sandy Kasten, Andrew Klein, Ben Prince, Denise Wharmby and Pam Winfrey. The soaring melodies and insightful, witty lyrics are sung by talented veterans of the local musical theater scene: Chloe Condon, Sheelagh Murphy, Jackie DeMuro, Tom Reardon, and Tim Homsley.
The music for the show combines an eclectic mix of songs using the sophisticated rhythms and melodies of contemporary Broadway. The creative team, led by director Ben Randle and music director Ben Prince, has woven their work into an enthralling evening that is part concert, part musical theater. Highlights include "I Googled It" - a song about using the internet to solve any sexual problem, "Too Many Eggs" - a song about how science takes a lesbian couple seeking parenthood to extremes, "Kinky"- about an average couple whose sexual world is turned upside down by the Folsom Street Fair.
The show runs April 4th through 27th, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 5:00 p.m. at The Alcove Theater near Union Square, 414 Mason Street, San Francisco. Tickets $27
