    Welcome to the dinner party from hell.  Struggling to find closure after a family tragedy, Debora and Michael invite their son’s bully and his family over for dinner.  Pain, loss and rage all come to a head as the night evolves and there’s enough blame for everybody to have a share.  A juxtaposition of beautiful and brutal, Late Company is a transfixing hotbed of visceral tension dealing with the important topic of bullying among LGBTQ youth and teens.

    Late Company is presented by the New Conservatory Theatre Center (NCTC), the premier LGBTQ theatre center in San Francisco.

    Written by Jordan Tannahill, “the hottest name in Canadian theatre” (The Montreal Gazette).

    Directed by Evren Odcikin, named one of the “6 Theatre Workers You Should Know” by American Theatre Magazine.  \

    Join MAX and the New Conservatory Theatre Center (NCTC), the premier LGBTQ theatre center in San Francisco, for the regional premiere of the tragicomedy Steve. Praised as “some of the funniest dialogue in town” in a New York Times review, Steve is a show not to be missed.

    After years with his Prince Charming, Steve finds himself bored with his “happily ever after”, his prince is sexting another man, his best friend is ill and he’s facing the expiration date on his desirability.  Filled with musical theatre references, plenty of heart and quick wit, Steve is a funny and relatable comedy about growing up, without growing old.

    Written by Mark Gerrard and directed by Becca Wolff.

    Join MAX for an evening with the Smuin Ballet, San Francisco’s premier contemporary ballet company.

    Smuin introduces a smashing world premiere featuring Amy Seiwert’s signature choreography, described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “keeping founder Michael Smuin’s legacy of unabashed showmanship alive.” As a choreographer, Seiwert has pushed the boundaries of dance by collaborating with artists of other disciplines and experimenting with its various forms and expressions from a classical base.  Now Artistic Director of Sacramento Ballet, Any Seiwert returns to help Smuin celebrate its quarter-century anniversary celebration.

    This performance also features The Best of Smuin, featuring the return of timeless Michael Smuin favorites such as “Unforgettable,” “Foolish Things,” and the red-hot chair solo “Fever”. This showcase of classics is packed with the ol’ razzle-dazzle, visually stunning effects, and twists that are Smuin’s trademarks.
