Another good Cirque show. The pre-curtain illusion is interesting and fun. The early bed/trampoline act is cool.

11/17 at Climate Theater in SF 11/3-19

An intimate and nicely done performance. I must admit I got a little lost toward the end, but I enjoyed the show and am looking forward to Stuart's next show in the late winter/early spring.

Miss Liberty
by Irving Berlin presented by 42nd St. Moon 11/13 at Eureka Theater in SF
A friend from college, Brandon, is working on this show. Other 42nd St. Moon shows I've seen have been really enjoyable.

This was no exception. Not a particularly deep or moving show, it was nicely done and enjoyable. As corny as the song "Big Fish" is, it's catch and it's still on my mind whenever I think of this song. The performers were appealing and compelling all around. Fun. 10/27-11/13

Sun Oct 9, Unitarian Universalists Church, 300 East Santa Inez Avenue in San Mateo
A rare treat--an excellent accordion quintet concert, doubling as their CD release celebration.

Nice concert with lots of new (mostly classical) material plus their fun favorites. (Nice introductions including reference to Richard cracking the whip for Norma's and the rest of their pleasure.)

The Overcoat Sat Oct 1, Geary Theatre in SF A wordless movement/mime theatre piece that I've heard good things about (mostly). to 10/2

Saw this with JimL and DavidvdW. Fun and interesting performance. Neat to see how storytelling works without words. Fun and sexy tailor scene.
Jeff Jacobson in Hard Left Fri Sept 30, Larkspur Cafe in Larkspur A one-man show put on by a great guy I met this summer. Fri-San 9/30-10/1

JayD, JimL and I went to see the show. It was impressive to see this first theatrical show by Jeff and how well he captured the emotions and experiences of different situations, and the feelings and impressions of himself at different ages in his life.

Touching, funny and moving.
