We’re finally getting back to the theater! Excited to see Faultline Theater’s Caveman Play tonight!
When I read the description that: “when you arrive, you will enter into a cave. In a cave, there are many different seating options. Ever dream of sitting on a comfy log? We got you. You want to lounge on a pillowy fur? Done.” I knew this was a show to check out.
WHAT: “An interactive comedy in which we are given an opportunity to go back to the moment when humanity had a choice. One path led us towards global warming, institutionalized racism, and snapchat filters. The other path led mostly to being eaten by tigers. Is it time to admit that we chose wrong? You decide!”
Kevin sees the new piece as homophobic, depicting Dan Plasma as a feminine tiger (sitting on flowers, long eyelashes). We know there’s controversy here. We know how Mike Giant feels about it. In a way it’s pretty amazing to be able to watch a dialogue play out through amazing artwork on a wall. We just wish it came with less beef.
Readers Nick and Sarah wrote in with an interesting question:
On Valencia, most of the new sidewalk (roughly 15th to 20th st) has an excellent sparkly nature to it. Something has been mixed into the concrete to give it a sparkly (most lovely under streetlights at night). We want to replicate this…. but what is it? Quartz? Gold? No one seems to know….. do you guys have an answer?
Although we’ve noticed this on Mission Street as well, we do not have the answer (although I highly doubt it’s gold). Do you?
