RETURNING BENEFIT PERFORMERS ARE:
|Tales of a Sexual Tomboy, Joyful Raven, directed by Jael Weisman, with creative support from Micaela Cirimeli
A raucous one-woman comedy about a horny tomboy, equipped with bad boundaries from her hippie upbringing, looking for empowerment in all the wrong places. Blending standup and story telling, Raven recounts some of the more hilarious and misguided moments from her treacherous path towards sexual liberation.
“What a great show! So funny, and honest, raw, and emotional. I loved it.”
-- audience review
EXIT THEATRE 7PM SEPT 24
|The Unspeakable Act by Steven Hess, Music by Jonathan Fadner, 23 Elephants
Inspired by an ancient Japanese fairytale, The Unspeakable Act follows an empress on her journey of sexual discovery with an unlikely lover: a hermit-monk turned demonic sex stud. Through the use of improvisation, dance and original music, 23 Elephants has created a show rife with physical comedy and throbbing with innuendo.
“Funny, energetic, and weird. Pure Fringe! Don’t miss it!” -- audience review
EXIT STAGE LEFT 7PM SEPT 24
|What They Said About Love by Steve Budd
Meet a New Age couple that met before they met, an artist who can’t resist homeless guys in her West Oakland ‘hood, a guy who falls for women who remind him of his mother, and a pair of Metal Heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-6. Satisfy your voyeuristic tendencies about how others look for love—and, in some cases, find it. Who knows? You might learn the secret to finding your life partner.
“Wows!!! Thrilling to watch this, think about repercussions, experience variations, and be amazed by the characterizations.” -- audience review
EXIT STUDIO 7PM SEPT 24
|The Oldest Living Cater Waiter: My Life in Three Courses, by Michael Patrick Gaffney, directed by Ken Sonkin
The Oldest Living Cater Waiter, offers up delicious insights into his complicated and hilarious careers as both a professional actor and a high-end waiter to the stars. Gaffney cooks up numerous characters from his past with just the right amount of sauciness, Shakespeare, and a soupçon of self-discovery. Come celebrate one man’s journey of a life in the theater.
“‘Pure comic genius’,’ ‘One man tour de force,’ ‘Be sure to see it’ — I can only agree with these other reviews and add my congratulations.” -- audience reviews
PIANOFIGHT THEATER 7PM SEPT 24
|At the Crossroads, by Ben Singer and Modern Robot
A modern score and an intense live performance accompanies the 1926 silent film, Faust. Smoke-filled models, faux-aerial shots, and detailed compositions have kept this movie a favorite of horror fans. The contemporary music captures both the light and dark of Faust with its strong lyrical themes and polyphonic textures. Presented with a fully restored projection.
“WOW WOW WOW WOW!! I just saw this show and felt compelled to review it while I am still tingling.” -- audience review
