Reel to Reel

Magic Theatre
Fort Mason
2 Marina Blvd.
Building D, 3rd Floor
San Francisco, CA 94123

John Kolvenbach (Sister Play, Mrs. Whitney, Goldfish) returns to Magic Theatre to direct the World Premiere of his own Reel to Reel. Fascinated by the relationship between sound and memory, Kolvenbach has written the story of a fifty-five-year marriage as told through the mundane sentiments of recorded conversations, arguments, and household noises. What emerges is a collage of love, aging, and death captured on audio tape.

The cast is led by Will Marchetti (Fool for Love) and Carla Spindt (Aunt Dan and Lemon), with Zoë Winters (Mauritius) and Andrew Pastides (Fool for Love 2017).

Empty Space: A New Webseries

Theater is like Sausage—if you love it, you should never watch it being made. Watch the comedy that fills the void Shakespeare in Love and Slings and Arrows left in your heart.

A love letter to live theater, Empty Space is nine-episode web comedy that explores and glorifies the world of diehard thespians, those hardcore beasts of the theater who soldier on against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune because, after all, the show must go on.
