TransNational Cabaret premiered this Monday! YAH! As a member of the Board of New Conservatory Theatre Center of San Francisco, I am asking for your support for this fabulous event. Starting at just $5 you get a treat and support the important LGBTQI theater. A silverlining to COVID 19 restrictions is that people from outside of San Francisco get to experience this extraordinary work.
It is streaming now thru June 10th and tickets start at just $5. The show is 40 minutes in length, so perfect for your lunch break or happy hour viewing.
I recommend pairing with a lovely Pinot Noir,…. mmmm, but that’s just me and my beloved!
