SF's "Brightest Satiric Star" (SF Chron) Charlie Varon "The Listener"
TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR AT 7:30PM
Charlie Varon is best known for hit shows (Rush Limbaugh in Night School, Rabbi Sam) and he is also been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Salon. The San Francisco Chronicle has credited Varon with "reinventing the form of solo theater" and called him San Francisco's "Brightest Satiric Star".
His new show, The Listener brings together the dramatic and literary strands of Varon's work, as he reads original stories with a solo performer's craft and gusto.
What audience members are saying about The Listener:
"Hilarious and poignant" ... "Pure artistry!" ... "Spunky and lovable characters" ... "Like spending a cozy evening by the campfire with a smart and wise friend" ... "Run, don't walk, to buy tickets!"
In Passenger , on a hot October day in San Francisco, Bernie, 83, a self-described "tough old Jew," gets tired of waiting for a cab, sticks out his thumb, and gets picked up by three 20-somethings in a fancy new car with surfboards strapped to the roof. By the end of the story, Bernie has convinced the kids to let him surf for the first time in his life, at the beach in Bolinas.
In Fish Sisters, Selma Cohen, 86, wakes up laughing. All she can remember from her dream is that she and her best friend Beverly, both 11, were giggling and whispering in low voices so the mischief they're planning won't be overheard by the adults. Selma soon is lost in memory.... Come enter another world with this masterful artist.
SGVCC was packed with enthusiastic attendees for Varon's performance of Rabbi Sam a few years ago.
