Laughing in the aisle

I can see Russia from my pianoLast week’s theatre attendance centered on one-man comedy shows. Tuesday we saw “Russian on the Side” at the Marines Memorial Theatre in San Francisco. The performance is by Mark Nadler. He plays the piano and tells humorous stories in a style reminiscent of Victor Borge and Danny Kaye. In fact, the show is structured around a Danny Kaye show-stopping patter song "Tchaikovsky". The tune was written by Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin, and consists of the names of Russian composers sung at rapid speed. The evening was one mad-capped musical lesson on Russian composers. Plays through November 16.

Miss Coco Peru in Ugly CocoWednesday night we were at the Rrazz Room in the Hotel Nikko. We saw our friend, Miss Coco Peru, present “Ugly Coco”. Coco Peru is an outstanding storyteller, monologist and singer. “Ugly Coco” raises the question; can a drag queen save the world? In a hilarious and moving fashion the audience relives portions of Coco’s childhood and follows her life from boyhood to manhood to “womanhood”. Miss Peru performs until November 2nd. Don't miss her!
We first got to know Miss Coco Peru last year on a TravelPride New Year’s cruise. We are all signed up again for this New Year’s cruise. It is not too late to join us. “Finally, the answer for what to do for New Year's! Leave the chaos, crowds and cold weather behind and spend it in the company of 148 newfound friends in the warm Caribbean. Our holiday cruise will take you to some of the exclusive yachtsman's ports rarely experienced by the large mega-cruise ships.”
