Peninsula Backstage


There’s no shortage of live theatre on the San Francisco Peninsula. Plays, musicals, and opera. Modern and classical. Professional and amateur. Peninsula Backstage brings in the people behind upcoming shows to talk about them. Tune in and find out what’s going on in our world of theatre.

Our Current Episode
On May 12th, we shot an episode featuring Palo Alto Players‘ upcoming production of Hart and Kaufman’s comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner, which is running at the Lucie Stern Theater from June 15th through July 1st. Peninsula Backstage host Nina G. Perry interviewed cast members Jim Shelby and Kristen Lo, and they performed a scene from the play.

David Simon directed the episode, and we couldn’t have done it without the talents of crew members Asia Dubarenka, Kevin Burnett, Fred Bockmann, Stan Ng, Kendy, Herb Moore, Pedro Arenas, Megan Murakami, and Ingrid Lee. Plus, we had a “small but mighty” studio audience!
