Virginia-Based Gannett Co. Inc’s Money-Losing “The Bold Italic” CorpoBlog Blows a Gasket: COVERS LA AS IF IT WERE SFTuesday, October 21st, 2014
Ah yes, The Bold Italic:
“The Bold Italic shares unique stories and events in San Francisco. We’ll show you ways to get out and be a better local.”
If you want, see how well Gannett Co Inc’s effort to make money out of San Franciscans, mostly tourists and newcomers, here at the Gannett Blog.
Anyway, here’s the latest, a city-based best burger listicle – see any problems here?
I’ll wait in los angeles
I’ll wait in the pouring sun
For not anyone
Finally, a Happy Time at the DMV: Third Annual Slappy Contest Today at 3:00PM – Skateboarding is Not a CrimeSunday, May 19th, 2013
Except when it is a crime.
Actually, just riding your bike through the Fell Street DMV parking lot is a crime unless there’s a sign saying it’s OK to do so and, sadly, there’s no such sign.
Anyway, today’s show must go on:
It looked just like this in 2012, at the second annual. Good times:
OMG, It’s “War Horse” at Our Curran Theatre – A Spectacle – Positive to Enthusiastic Reviews – Ends Sept. 9thWednesday, August 8th, 2012
I don’t know what you’re looking for in a play, but how’s this?
- 2011 Tony Awards:
- Best Play
- Best Direction (Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris)
- Best Scenic Design (Rae Smith, winner)
- Best Lighting Design (Paule Constable, winner)
- Best Sound Design (Christopher Shutt, winner)
In addition, Adrian Kohler and Basil Jones of Handspring Puppet Company won the Special Tony Award for War Horse.
So yeah, War Horse at our SHN Curran Theatre is a puppet show based on a children’s book, but it looks amazing.
Speaking of which, here’s SFPD horse “Hammer” meeting SHN horse puppet “Joey” the other day in Golden Gate Park – check the video:

And, the reviews:
“Miracles abound in the electrifying “War Horse“ per Robert Hurwitt of the San Francisco Chronicle
It’s “spellbinding” per Karen D’Souza of the San Jose Mercury News
“War Horse earns its stripes” per Ken Marks of KQED
“War Horse is the one touring show that shouldn’t be missed” per Cy Ashley Webb of the Stark Insider
Four stars out of five per Albert Goodwyn, SF Performing Arts Examiner
It’s a great show. You (and your kin aged 12 and up) ought to go see it.
And oh, BTW, if you don’t already have tickets for The Book of Mormon, you know, the Best Musical of the Century (already!) per the New York Times, well, it’s time to start freaking out. You can’t buy tickets now because the only way to do that is to get a subscription for the 2012-2013 season (you know, Lion King, Wicked, etc.) but here’s the catch: SOLD OUT, baby! Already. So you’re going to need to move move move when individual tickets go on sale, whenever that will be. BoM, which is, fundamentally, a “love letter to religion written by an atheist,” however foul-mouthed it may be, will only be here for five short weeks. Every last show will sell out, just saying.
