Date Lines: News from the Bay Area arts scene

If you can make to San Francisco, GET TICKETS and tell me about it!

Capote's 'Memory'

Another holiday tradition gets reborn in a different format when Word for Word, the company that performs short stories verbatim, takes on Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory." Readings of the Capote classic have been a regular Theatre Rhinoceros event for three decades, almost always performed by longtime company member Robert Coffman, who died three years ago. This year, Word is stepping in to revive the tradition with a staged reading at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 directed by company co-founder JoAnne Winter (suggested donation $20).

This first collaborative venture between the companies is also something of a warm-up for their full-scale co-production of stories by Tennessee Williams, Gertrude Stein and Armistead Maupin coming in May. Get tickets and more information on Rhino's season at (415) 861-5079 or - Robert Hurwitt
