On Wednesday, 1/23, the Works by Women San Francisco Meetup Group hosted our third event – a performance of The Little Foxes produced by Tides Theatre. A group of 12 of us enjoyed director Jennifer Welch’s 21st century update of this 1939 gem by Lillian Hellman. In addition to the irresistible opportunity to honor Lillian, one of our most out-spoken theatrical foremothers, we chose this production because Tides Theatre is an up and coming theater company in the Bay Area run by women (Jennifer Welch, Producing Artistic Director; Cary Cronholm Rose, Associate Artistic Director; Susan Shay, Director of Marketing & Communications.) This production inaugurates their second season and also marks their move in SF Playhouse’s former 89-seat space at 533 Sutter Street.
If you were part of the Meetup event or saw The Little Foxes on your own, we would love to hear your shout-outs to the women artists involved. What did you find enjoyable, meaningful or interesting about their work? Post your comments below and celebrate the artistry of:
