Congratulations to Ed Decker and the crew at New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco for earning kudos in the San Francisco Bay Times Best Theatre of 2007!
Take Me Out was listed as the numero uno play of 2007 in San Francisco Theatre and the current running Based on a Totally True Story is number 3. Several other NCTC shows received honorable mention, including The Big Voice, Jim Brochu’s one-man Zero Hour, Farm Boys, The Dying Gaul, and Wilde Boys.

My discussion of Based on a Totally True Story is here. You still have a few days to check out it out! For tickets, visit www.nctcsf.org now.
NCTC has a great line up in store for early 2008 as well, including In Gabriel's Kitchen, the debut play of Salvatore Antonio, centering on an Italian-Canadian family's reaction to their son's homosexuality. For Gabriel, the youngest son, falling in love leads to decisions which cannot be reversed. For Gabriel's family, the subsequent loss of their favorite child means a silence of denial and the slow crumbling of a family built on Old World morals.
Other upcoming plays include I Am My Own Wife, and Mormon American Princess. Based upon the success of NCTC's lineup in 2007, these are sure to be theatre worth seeing in 2008!
