Solo Sundays - 6/28
San Francisco is justifiably celebrated as the nations solo performance capital. A steady stream (or more recently, a surging river) of audacious, dedicated writer/performers, highly-skilled teachers, award-winning directors, and adventurous producers have emerged, and are shaping provocative, passionate shows for an enthusiastic audience who is eager to be challenged and likes to laugh. Its important that they like to laugh because there are some of the funniest shows in town. StageWerx and Solo Performance Workshop have joined together to present the very best of these solo performers in a new monthly series called Solo Sundays. The series occurs on the final Sunday of each month (usually) and offers theater-goers the opportunity to enjoy anywhere from two to four of the finest writer/performers around. One more thing. The tickets are only $10 each. Join us.
W. Kamau Bell is the co-founder and director of the Solo Performance Workshop. You may be familiar with his name. His solo show, The W. Kamau Bell Curve was a critical and popular success this past year in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and most recently at the Comedy Central Stage in LA. Not only was he honored by the SF Weekly as the Bay Areas Comedian of the Year in 2008 but this past May he was the focus of a cover story. Solo Sundays is being programmed by Bruce Pachtman, the co-founder of the Solo Performance Workshop as well as the writer/performer of "don't make me look too psychotic", which ran for a total of 100 weeks in San Francisco, Philadelphia and LA. It's being produced at StageWerx Theatre, an intimate, subterranean 50 seat space near Union Square that is perfectly proportioned for solo performance.The theater is directed by Ty and Cory McKenzie, theater iconoclasts with a history of presenting everything from rock operas to scary movies to improv comedy to staged readings to circus acts.
