For anyone who is into LGBTQ history or Classic literature, this is the play to see. It is also history in the making as the story takes flight all the way from New York City where it began to San Francisco’s Brava Theatre for its west cost Premiere. I feel so very lucky and fortunate to know  the lead actress in the show, Miss Erin Maxwell, who is a dear friend, and who plays the swaggering Brinker herself – she does a dazzling job at it! Erin is also the founder and artistic director of QGTP (Queer Girl Theatre Project) in San Francisco. It was an absolute joy to see her shine on stage. Along with other strong performances of the characters Beth (Jayne Deely) and Lauren (Summer Serafin) as well as a creative set with an acoustic band as part of the back drop, I highly recommend seeing the show if you can. The show runs till March 13th. If you can make it to the show on the 11th you’ll get the chance to meet Ann Bannon, the creator of the famous Lesbian Pulp classic novels that inspired the play.  Cheers ~ Jenny

“The Beebo Brinker Chronicles” February 25 – March 13, 2010  Written by Kate Moira Ryan & Linda S. Chapman  Tickets $20-$40

 Adapted from Ann Bannon’s groundbreaking, award-winning pulp novels of the 1950s and 1960s, Beebo Brinker Chronicles follows the lives and loves of four friends in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village. Beth and Laura, secret lovers in college, still pine for each other. Before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in a web spun by Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the underground bar scene, and Jack, a flamboyant fop with caustic wit.
