‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ Really Is Splendid

By Chris Narloch

If you’re planning to attend the Dore Alley fetish fair in San Francisco this weekend – or maybe you just need to escape the hellish Sacramento heat for a day – I highly recommend adding the final weekend of A.C.T.’s amazing production of “A Thousand Splendid Suns” to your to-do list.

Far more than just an entertaining play, Ursula Rani Sarma’s amazing adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s celebrated novel is an important piece of theater that deserves to be seen by the widest possible audience.

Out at the Fair returns to California State Fair as an official event

Out at the Fair (OATF), a family-friendly celebration of the LGBTQ+ community – is set to return to the California State Fair (CSF), and scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at Cal Expo in Sacramento, California, in partnership with the Sacramento LGBT Community Center.

Originally launched at the San Diego County Fair (SDCF) in 2013 as an “Unofficial Gay Day at the Fair,” OATF became an official Fair event in 2014 and renamed “Out at the Fair.” Through the years, it has garnered many Fair industry awards, including the prestigious Barham Award, bestowed by the Western Fairs Association in 2018.

“Beehive: The 60s Musical” Rocks Lake Tahoe

By Chris Narloch

I can’t think of a better way to escape this sweltering Sacramento summer than with a trip to Tahoe, where daytime temperatures top out in the 70s and 80s and the beautiful blue waters of Lake Tahoe beckon.

If you can go this summer, I recommend taking a trip to Tahoe before August 24, when “Beehive: The 60s Musical” closes its run. The terrific production, originally created by Larry Gallagher, comes courtesy of Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, which is alternating their staging of “Macbeth” with this colorful and tuneful show.
