THEATER: This looks fun: "The runaway cult hit makes its San Francisco debut, starring the incomparable Matthew Martin and his camp cohort Mike Finn. See what happens when a drag headmistress and her cross-dressed minions put on a musical of Moby Dick to save their beleaguered girls’ school." (Opens tonight, runs until October 12.)
MUSIC: So does this Silke Tudor-recommended event: "For the last decade, the Music for People & Thingamajigs Festival has endeavored to pull the avant-garde into public focus. This year, the much-expanded festival offers concerts, workshops, a marathon musical picnic, a gallery exhibit," featuring Toychestra, Chris Brown (professor of music at Mills College), the Norman Conquest, and the Wreck of the Old Number 10.
