Doris Maskowitz sings and plays songs from before 1940. With a love of words, stories, and old movies, she accompanies herself on the piano.
Bruce Pachtman’s first solo show “Dont Make Me Look Too Psychotic” was developed with Club Solo and directed by W. Kamau Bell. It ran in SF, Philadelphia and LA for a total of 300 performances. The scene Bruce performs on May 29 is included in his not-yet-complete (or titled) second show. It was co-written with Kamau.
Liz Calahan is immensly grateful to her husband, children, stepchildren, and grandchildren who she hopes will never see this piece. And to her talented sister, Ellen Jay, who invited her to share the stage with her both literally and figuratively. And to Jeanne Haynes, her storytelling teacher, for her encouragement, enthusiasm and expert direction. She owes this award to all of them.
Adrian West moved to the Bay Are from Montreal in 1995 and lives in Oakland with his wife and two daughters. He is a singer-songwriter and musician who leads the Adrian West Band and performs often around the bay area. Recently he has been putting off on a multimedia show in San Francisco and Berkeley called “An Evening of Music and Science” which weaves together his music, synchronized video, poetry, and an exploration of abiogenesis, the study of how life began on Earth.
Joan Chaplick lives in San Francisco, works in Berkeley, grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Try to figure out those values and politics! Joan’s studied at The Marsh with David Ford, Charlie Varon, and Ann Randolph for many years. She’ll be performing in the SF Fringe Festival in September 2018.
