Acclaimed actress Kathleen Turner is coming to San Francisco this fall for a pair of intimate performances at Feinstein's at the Nikko and who knew she did cabaret? As Playbill first reported, her show is called "Finding My Voice," and she'll be singing and sharing "backstage stories" from her career.
"I am very excited to bring 'Finding My Voice' to San Francisco, one of my favorite cities," Turner says.
Turner is premiering the show in Philadelphia on September 25, and will be coming to San Francisco on October 20 and 21. Tickets are available here, starting at $42 and as you may or may not know, Feinstein's serves both dinner and drinks.
Turner last appeared in the Bay Area at Berkeley Rep in 2014's Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins, a one-woman biographical show about the famed Texas newspaper columnist (see my review here). That show toured the country, and Turner has spent much of the last couple decades doing theater when she wasn't guest-starring on Friends as Chandler's dad. She also appeared in Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking at Arena Stage in D.C., and in 2005 she was nominated for a Tony Award for playing Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, opposite Bill Irwin. She won Golden Globe Awards for her roles in Romancing the Stone and Prizzi's Honor, and she was nominated for an Oscar for Peggy Sue Got Married.
