I really hope Ericka brings this show to NYC! In happy news, I booked my tickets (thanks Orbitz and Virgin America) for NYC to SF and then SF to LA, will book the rest tomorrow...when my check clears. My new six-word memoir is indeed "Waiting For The Check To Clear" since that feels like all I do these days. Am in full promo mode as I keep my fingers crossed my college paper The Daily Californian will cover my Bay Area readings and scout out Bay Area vegan cupcakes to bring to Booksmith and plot other event fabulousness to make the price of those plane tickets worth it!

Solo Sundays - 1/23/11
San Francisco, CA
This month we feature two Solo Sundays favorites:
A W I D O W ' S T O D O L I S T
>>> written and performed by Ericka Lutz
When she got married, Ericka Lutz didn't want to say the "'til death do us part" part. Twenty years later - BOOM! - sudden widowhood! Then grief, absurdity, skin-hunger, tattoos. And who knew that Love and Death came with a side order of so-much-to-do? A Widow's To-Do List is a solo performance about death, but more so, it's about life after a tragedy, and a complicated, contemporary marriage.
***** FREE TICKETS *****
In honor of the Ericka Lutz's show A WIDOWS TO DO LIST, we are offering a free ticket to any widow/widower who would like to see the show. Just send a note with your first and last name and A WIDOWS TO DO LIST to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll confirm your request.

>>> written and performed by Martha Rynberg
Martha's talking about the unmentionables, the secret spots. No, not on her body* but within her mind. All the trappings of being a woman don't leave her a lot of space - and "Lady Parts" is about trying to see how it all fits together. How can she make it from daughterhood to motherhood, without hating herself or the women and girls around her?
* ok, there may be a few body references....

Hilarious, Heartbreaking & Provocative Solo Performances
Solo Sundays, S.F.'s premier monthly showcase, presents select samplings of veteran virtuosos and top emerging talent in the intimate StageWerx theater near Union Square. Beyond stand-up and storytelling, solo theater creates casts of thousands - plus special effects - all bursting from a single performer. The results are hilarious and heartbreaking, passionate and provocative, ablaze with personal visions.
