- Judd 'Sins' again
- SF Chroncle May 30, 2008 (Robert Hurwitt)
- James Judd's autobiographical comic solo "7 Sins" has turned
out to be more popular than he expected on the San Francisco native's return
visit to his hometown. Having sold out a seven-week spring run at Theatre
Rhinoceros' downstairs studio, Judd is bringing it back for an Exit Theatre
reprise, starting tonight. He has to close June 21, he says via e-mail,
to head east for other gigs, culminating in the Edinburgh Festival - then
he looks forward to sinning off-Broadway.
- The EXIT has become the place for underground hits to find added life
these days. Dan Wilson's delightful " 'Sweetie' Tanya: The Demon Barista
of Valencia Street" just closed its reprise run there last weekend,
and Foul Play is bringing its popular "Attack of the Killer B-Movies:
Live!" - parodies of "The Blob," "The Birds,"
"The Bad Seed" - to the Exit from June 13 to 22. Exit Artistic
Director Christina Augello co-stars with author Sean Owens in "Her
Majesty," returned from its New York run, July 11-19.
- As for "Sins," Judd reports to be gratefully surprised by
how quickly tickets ($14-$20) for the Exit run are selling out, aided by
half-price ticketing for advance sales at www.goldstar.com or www.sffringe.org.
