More great holiday fun on the very small stage of The Dark Room in San Francisco’s Merry Mission district: “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!” not to be missed! via oftenon:
Hey, uh, do you guys like kid-friendly Christmas plays featuring characters wearing handmade dresses (pink dress by yours truly)? Then come see Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown! playing at the Dark Room Theater at 8pm for the next two weekends.
Note: Lucy’s eyes are luminous on stage, but not in the same way as in this photo.

Just in case you hadn’t heard The Princess Bride Live, the ridiculously successful small theater show that I’m in in San Francisco right now, added 3 performances. Thursday-Saturday on Labor Day weekend.
All advance tickets are ALREADY sold out for the 3 added performances (as well as this weekend’s 3 shows which were in the original run). But you can queue up like an hour before the show as there will always be a few seats night of. But there’s a lot of people lining up for those. Get there early. No, earlier than that, if you want to get in.
If have tickets sit as close to the stage as you can cuz… it’s more fun there.

Ted Vasin’s “Poison Bliss”
Multi-media artist Ted Vasin’s blog (http://tedvasin.com/blog/) looks to be evidence photos of a person on a hallucinatory bender; a mix of electronic equipment, newspaper/magazine clippings, wires, medical marijuana, dildos, and art supplies. While that’s fun and all, it wouldn’t be worth investigating or mentioning if the end result wasn’t such a fantastic body of provoking art works. Vasin’s mix of graphite and acrylics creates a startling swirl of imagery, iconography and bursts of color. Combine that with his vertigo-like points of view and you’ll find pure uncut Vasin magic. I still wouldn’t suggest that he date your daughter though. Take a look at Ted Vasin’s latest work, “Poison Bliss” just opening at 101/exhibit (http://www.101exhibit.com/) in Miami.
