SAN FRANCISCO’S 42nd STREET MOON ASSUMES THE LEASE ON THE NEWLY-RENAMED GATEWAY THEATRE (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE EUREKA THEATRE)

42nd STREET MOON


SAN FRANCISCO, CA (Wednesday, July 12, 2017) – San Francisco’s acclaimed 42nd Street Moon (Daren A.C. Carollo and Daniel Thomas, Co-Executive Directors) is thrilled to announce that it has assumed the lease (as of July 5, 2017) of the newly-renamed Gateway Theatre at 215 Jackson Street (the former home of the recently-shuttered Eureka Theatre Company).

42nd Street Moon’s Co-Executive Director Daniel Thomas said “We couldn’t be more pleased for the opportunity to work with The Gateway in running the theater space at 215 Jackson. There is immense potential for the space to become the hub of a vibrant and revitalized neighborhood as well as an anchor for the arts community by the Embarcadero. 42nd Street Moon is eternally grateful to the Eureka for all they have done for Bay Area theater over the last four decades, and we are especially thankful for their generous donation of the technical equipment in the space. We look forward to partnering with all of the current tenants of the theater to ensure the experience for the artists and patrons becomes more fulfilling in the coming years.”

42nd Street Moon is also excited to maintain (and grow) fruitful partnerships with shared users of The Gateway Theatre including Theatre Rhinoceros, SF Sketchfest, and SF ArtsED. The organization will continue to provide performance space for short-term and long-term rentals. Once the remodel is complete, 42nd Street Moon also hopes to offer the space for non-theatrical uses such as meetings and corporate events, music recitals and performances, lectures, community symposiums and more.

“42nd Street Moon is honored to take over the lease of 215 Jackson,” remarked Co-Executive Director Daren A.C. Carollo. “We enjoy reinvisioning classic musicals in our intimate setting. Our patrons adore the close connection to our storytellers, our live un-amplified voices and musicians, and the proximity to public transportation and restaurants. We look forward to sharing our space with other awesome San Francisco institutions including Theatre Rhinoceros, the longest running LGBTQ theatre company in the country, SF Sketchfest, and SF ArtsED. We also would like to thank The Eureka Theatre Company for the generous gift of all of the technical equipment.”

Negotiations are currently underway for a long-term lease on The Gateway. Once the long-term lease is finalized, 42nd Street Moon will inaugurate a capital campaign to transform the building into a modern, vibrant, sleek, welcoming venue. The new Gateway Theatre is envisioned as a hub of cultural electricity for San Francisco’s financial district, bringing artistic synergy to the community and providing patrons and artists with a highly comfortable, state-of-the-art venue.

42nd Street Moon’s 2016-2017 season recently concluded with Bob Merrill’s New Girl in Town (based on Eugene O’Neill’s classic Anna Christie) and the classic 1920s hit No, No, Nanette (featuring the beloved standard “Tea for Two”). 2016’s smash-hit holiday production of Scrooge in Love! broke records as the highest-grossing show in 42nd Street Moon’s history.

The 25th anniversary season begins this October with Ain't Misbehavin', the beloved celebration of the music of Fats Waller (conceived by Murry Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr.), which plays October 11-29, 2017. Up next for the holidays will be the enchanting Broadway favorite The Secret Garden by Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon (December 6-24, 2017). The season continues in the new year with the Northern California Debut of Stephen Sondheim's rarely produced Saturday Night, with a book by brothers Julius J. Epstein and Philip G. Epstein (March 28-April 15, 2018). The season will conclude with the hilarious British “Lambeth Walk” musical Me and My Girl by Noel Gay, Douglas Furber, and L. Arthur Rose, revised by Stephen Fry with contributions by Mike Ockrent (May 2-20, 2018). All performances will take place at The Gateway Theatre (215 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94111). More information on 42nd Street Moon’s 25th Anniversary Season is available online at www.42ndstmoon.org/2017-2018-season/. Subscriptions are on-sale now and may be purchased online at www.42ndstmoon.org or by calling the Box Office at (415) 255-8207 (Tues. – Fri., 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.). Single tickets for all productions will go on-sale August 1, 2017.

42nd Street Moon celebrates and preserves the art and spirit of the American Musical Theatre. The organization contributes to its evolution and continuing vitality by presenting intimately produced performances of classic and rarely performed musical works. Through productions, educational programs, and community outreach, 42nd Street Moon is committed to increasing the awareness and appreciation of the rich heritage and cultural perspective of the musical theatre and its vast influence on the world stage.

MAGIC THEATRE ANNOUNCES CAST
OF HAN ONG’S WORLD PREMIERE PLAY GRANDEUR
FEATURING CARL LUMBLY (ABC’S ALIAS, CBS’ CAGNEY & LACEY);
PREVIEWS BEGIN MAY 31, OPENS ON JUNE 7.


WORLD PREMIERE PLAY GRANDEUR


SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 25, 2017) – Magic Theatre (Loretta Greco, Artistic Director and Jaimie Mayer, Managing Director) announced today the complete cast of Han Ong’s World Premiere GRANDEUR. Previews begin on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at Magic Theatre’s Fort Mason location, with a press opening on Wednesday, June 7. The production is helmed by Magic’s Artistic Director Loretta Greco. Tickets are on-sale now.

The Company is led by Carl Lumbly (ABC’s Alias, CBS’ Cagney & Lacey) as “Gil Scott-Heron,” and features Safiya Fredericks as “Julie Toussaint” and Rafael Jordan as “Steve Barron.”

GRANDEUR imagines a meeting between an ambitious young journalist and the shape-shifting music legend, Gil Scott-Heron. Questions of legacy, art, hope, and redemption drive this funny and gut-wrenching exchange. It’s a homecoming for MacArthur Genius award winner Han Ong, who returns to Magic after a 25-year hiatus.

“In 1992 Han Ong made his professional debut at Magic in 1992 with Reasons to Live,” said Artistic Director Loretta Greco, who is directing GRANDEUR. “So, it is serendipitous that after a sojourn from the theater (in order to write his wonderful novels) he is returning home to Magic with his first play in 16 years! GRANDEUR is a stunning-- powerful ride; both wickedly funny and poignant in its social relevance, we are honored to be premiering it. GRANDEUR provides the rare opportunity to spend an evening with the shape-shifting titan of music: the great Gil Scott Heron (played with gusto by the exceptional Carl Lumbly).

Just as Diebenkorn chasing the tail of Matisse has captured our collective imagination, Han has doggedly trailed and lovingly reassembled another artist of color’s rise and fall in order to evoke perspective on some of life’s larger questions and to leave a more intricate and complicated tale which asks us to reconsider what constitutes a man’s worth.”

In addition to Mr. Ong and Ms. Greco, the creative team includes Hana S. Kim (Scenic / Video Design), Alex Jaeger (Costume Design), Raymond Oppenheimer (Lighting Design), Sara Huddleston (Sound Design) and Jackie Scott (Props Design). Magic Theatre is located in the Marina District of San Francisco, at the historic Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (Fort Mason, 2 Marina Blvd., Building D, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94123).

The entrance to Fort Mason is at the intersection of Marina Blvd and Buchanan Street. The performance schedule is Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday – Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. There is no Tuesday performance during Previews, and there will be two additional 2:30 p.m. performances (on Saturday, June 10 and Wednesday, June 14). There will be a Salon with the Director and Playwright following the 2:30 p.m. performance on Sunday, June 4, and Friday post-show Talkbacks with the actors following the 8:00 p.m. performances on June 9, June 16 and June 23.

Tickets, priced from $35.00 to $75.00, are available online at MagicTheatre.org; by calling Magic Theatre at (415) 441-8822; or visiting Magic Theatre’s Box Office, Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during non-performance dates. On performance dates, the Box Office is open Tuesday – Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday one hour prior to the show. For more information, visit MagicTheatre.org.

About Magic Theatre
Now celebrating its 50th year of continuous operation, Magic Theatre is dedicated to the cultivation of bold new plays, playwrights, and audiences – and to producing explosive, entertaining, and ideologically robust stories that ask substantive questions about our place in humanity. Magic provides a nurturing yet rigorous artistic home where innovative writers can create a body of work. We believe that developing an evolved artistic vocabulary with the playwright at our side, over a long period of time, greatly improves a playwright’s chances to thrive.

From its earliest years, Magic Theatre has contributed to the richness and relevance of the national theatrical canon. Magic’s impact on the field has resonated throughout the United States beginning in the 1970’s with Sam Shepard’s early Pulitzer and Obie-award winning plays to Luis Alfaro’s world premiere of Oedipus el Rey in 2010, Taylor Mac’s groundbreaking five-hour epic The Lily’s Revenge in 2011, and Octavio Solis’s Se Llama Cristina in 2013. Under Loretta Greco’s direction, Magic is reviving and increasing playwright residencies and long-term artistic developmental efforts as it hones its focus on new play creation in concert with the playwright. 22 of the 25 new plays produced at Magic over the last five years have enjoyed extended life beyond its stage throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Magic Theatre has supported hundreds of artists since the indefatigable John Lion founded it in 1967. Michael McClure served as the first playwright in residence beginning in 1969 with his early plays. Sam Shepard cut his playwright’s teeth at Magic, starting in 1975. His seminal plays were written and premiered during his decade-long residency, including Buried Child (Pulitzer Prize, 1979), True West (both directed by Robert Woodruff), and Fool for Love. Martin Esslin, internationally renowned scholar and critic, joined the company as the first resident dramaturg in American theater in 1977, a position now integral to American new playhouses.

Soon 3, Athol Fugard, Mark O’Rowe, Nilo Cruz, Octavio Solis, Claire Chafee, Jon Robin Baitz, Paula Vogel, Anne Bogart, Stephen Belber, Basil Twist, and Rebecca Gilman are just a notable few of the formidable writers who have been a part of Magic’s history. They have been joined in recent years by many of today’s exciting playwrights, such as Taylor Mac, Linda McLean, Teresa Rebeck, Lloyd Suh, Julie Marie Myatt, Sharr White, Christina Anderson, and Luis Alfaro. Magic plays have received numerous awards, including Pulitzer Prizes and ten Obie Awards. Other honors include the Kennedy Center Award, PEN-West Awards for Drama, Bay Area Critics’ Circle Awards, Los Angeles Drama-Logue Awards, and the NAACP Image Award. Oedipus el Rey was awarded the Will Glickman Playwriting Award for 2010 and Sharr White’s Annapurna was a finalist for the 2012 Steinberg/ACTA New Play Award.

Paco Leon kicks off tonight @roxietheater

 Roxie Theater

Roxie Theater has a great lineup planned for December, co-presented by the SF Latino Film Festival (@sflatinofilm).

RoxCine’s December Lineup with Almodóvar

December 16-18: KIKI: EL AMOR SE HACE (KIKI: LOVE TO LOVE) by Spanish filmmaker Paco León. Five stories of love and sex unfold over one hot summer in Madrid, when the protagonists discover strange and unusual sources of sexual indulgence with unpronounceable names: Dacryphilia, Eliphilia, Somnophilia, Polyamori, Harpaxophilia… Taboos are broken one by one as our horny couples enter into a thrilling liberation in which no pleasure is denied, whatever form it takes.

Pedro Almodóvar casts aside his predilection for stylized high comedy and moves into full-blooded melodrama in “The Flower of My Secret.” Far from abandoning his trademark humor, however, the writer-director skillfully enlists it in the service of an emotional story, charting the heroine’s journey from loss and torment to rediscovered strength and hope.

A master of the genre, Almodóvar creates a modernist melodrama with dashes of his trademark surrealism that draws not only on empathy for the wounded but on an admiration for the resilience of women. All About My Mother is a story of love and friendship that is born of significant loss. After losing her son in an unfortunate accident after attending a production of A Streetcar Named Desire, a single mother seeks solace from her grief. Along the way she rediscovers pieces of her past as she reunites with the boy’s transvestite father, meets an old friend, and realizes new friendships with a nun who runs a shelter for battered prostitutes and with the stage actress her son so admired. Embracing issues of gender, role playing, and melodrama itself, Almodóvar creates a uniquely affecting work. (Harvard Film Archive)

Almodóvar’s glorious, gaudy, ghostly ‘women’s picture’ managed to charm just about everyone who sat in front of it. Even though the director claimed the film contained elements of autobiography, he gave it another delicious personal twist by casting long-time muse Carmen Maura as the mother of his glamorous future muse, Penélope Cruz. A beautifully written tale of betrayal, murder, independence and sisterhood set in a dusty suburb of Madrid, it charts three generations of women attempting to overcome the various troubles – men, money, ghosts – that have been heaped upon them. While Almodóvar’s control as a director is a joy to behold, there’s no denying that it’s Cruz who makes the film her own: the scene in which she sings the song of the title (‘Volver’ or ‘to return’), clad in a ridiculously tight red-and-white striped dress, probably stands at the pinnacle of her acting CV. (Time Out London)

RoxCine is the Roxie’s year-round Spanish-language film program curated by Isabel Fondevila. RoxCine features new releases, repertory programming, and special series and retrospectives, with an exciting mix of films – from winners at major film festivals with US distribution, to special features not seen on any other screen outside of Latin America.

Cine+Mas SF Latino Film Festival co presents the series in partnership with Pajaro Latinoamericano, KPOO and ROCK EN REBELION – KPFA. To purchase tickets or see the year-round schedule, go to roxie.com/roxcine/.
