THEATER: Gays from other states are always so charmingly angry and amusing once they land in the California Republic. Take, for example, noted San Francisco homosexual, Kirk Read. His latest theatrical show, starting tonight and running through Saturday, creates "an evening of stories about sex work, hallucinations, and the apocalypse." Having grown up in some far off place called "Virginia" as part of an evangelical youth group, he mow has firm roots in SF, colorfully preaching to locals. Tonight, hear trippy tales abut "450 pound sex work client, people with dietary restrictions, the Brady Bunch, and touring through rural Alabama with genius strippers."

Oh my.
