Regrettably, I don't think I'm going to make this, but it really looks like one of those events I'll kick myself for missing. This Friday and Saturday The Crucible will honor the departure of Founder and Creative Director Michael Sturtz with a special program called Crucible Revival, where they plan to bring back many of the most memorable performances from the past. Their press release promises an evening of "reprisals of unforgettable moments from Crucible stage shows, stunning surprises and plenty of fire from a Who’s Who of Bay Area favorites, including many Crucible friends and collaborators. Hosted by Master of Ceremonies Mark Growden, the revival promises a fast-paced, jaw-dropping lineup of music, dance and more."
