The Last Blue Couch in the Sky ~ Rigoletto ~ Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - The Musical ~ Smut

May 24, 2017

This week on Open Air, host David Latulippe talks with choreographer Kim Epifano, artistic director of Epiphany Productions, about the new site specific performance ‘The Last Blue Couch in the Sky’, which opens on June 2. The event includes a walking tour through the volatile San Francisco South of Market district, where displacement and gentrification have been a long-term challenge to the local communities, and ends with a performance inside at YBCA's Forum.

From the San Francisco Opera, we meet with baritone Quinn Kelsey and soprano  Nino Machaidze, who perform the roles of Rigoletto and Gilda in the new production of Verdi’s ‘Rigoletto’, which opens on May 31.

Theatre Rhino artistic director John Fisher and actor Rudy Guerrero stop by to share details on ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - The Musical’, which opens on May 27 at the Eureka Theatre in San Francisco.

Plus, Open Air’s regular contributor and critic at large, Peter Robinson, fills us in on summer hike possibilities along Bay Area Trails and reviews the new production of ‘Smut’ at Word for Word.
