So when I heard about The Dardy Family Home Movies by Stephen Sondheim by Erin Markey, a "live performance with video projection" at the San Francisco Film Society, I imagined the tables turning: Now it's film -- or at least a film society -- that's trying to be more like theater! Bwahaha!

But as I discussed in my review of the autobiographical solo show, I found its filmic elements to be its least successful. The piece is quite strong; the emphasis on multimedia only clutters it.
The show continues through this Sunday. Info here.
