San Francisco, the city that saw a little too much of the boys from Puppetry of the Penis back in October when one of the actor's assets were accidentally shown on morning TV, still wants to see some more.
The adult-oriented, sex-free show will close its run at Theatre-on-the-Square Nov. 24, only to reopen five days later at the Alcazar Theatre.
Created by Australians David Friend and Simon Morley, Puppetry of the Penis has no plot, only the ancient Australian art of "genital origami," in which the performers create various objects and landmarks — including the Loch Ness Monster, a hamburger, a bow tie, a wrist watch, a bullfrog, an atomic mushroom, a windsurfer, a wedding ring, a sea anemone, a slowly emerging mollusk, a three wood golf club and the Eiffel Tower — by stretching their genitalia.
All tickets are $39.50-$44.50. For tickets at Theatre-on the-Square, call (415) 433-9500. After Nov. 29, call the Alcazar at (415) 478-2277. Puppetry of the Penis is on the web at http://www.puppetryofthepenis.com
