I heart doing things. If you live around SF, you can do these things too.

it's almost like *i'm* famous!

Tings Dey Happen | artyarts | 12/14/07 - 01/13/07
I remember reading this interview with someone annoying, like dave eggers or something, just as he was getting famous and he was like, yeah, these people have started coming up to me on the street and being like, "hey, dave, it's roy from tenth grade. remember how i gave you a piece of gum that one time? can i have $20?" well, i went to high school with dan hoyle, the writer and performer of Tings Dey Happen, (remember how i gave you that newsletter column that one time?) and so it's in my best interest that he get good and famous. so, people, go to his show! actually, he's kind of already getting famous without my help (dammit!), and i'm just jumping on the bandwagon, hoping to cash in on my $20. dan's a genius, or at least he was in tenth grade, or at least he was funny and insightful and generous, and i expect his show will be as well. of course, it's about nigerian oil politics, so it might also be really, really depressing. the show's at the marsh on valencia.

UPDATE: Been there, activitied that. It's freaking great, people. See it, love it, tell other people to see it.

see more theater, she said

Strangers We Know (a Word For Word production) | artyarts | 01/12/07 - 01/28/07
I have been waiting a few years to see a Word For Word production (living on the east coast got in the way a bit), and for my patience, the company has decided to reward me by staging a Lorrie Moore short story, so that we can all cry cry cry. Okay, a little background. Word for Word is a production company that puts on short stories - like, every word of them ("she said", "he said", "it was a dark and stormy night" etc). I've never seen a performance but I've always thought that was such a clever idea, and Lorrie Moore is a fantastic, often moving, writer. I'm excited. They will also be performing a Mavis Gallant story. I don't know who that is.
