An Alfresco Musical Advenure
TIMON! - The Musical
A Co-Production of Theatre Rhinoceros and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival.
June 5-7, 2015 Only!
Admission is FREE but Theatre Rhino Subscribers get very special treatment.
Timon! – The Musical transfers Shakespeare’s ancient Athens to contemporary San Francisco, where the cafes are full of bohemians, the city’s falling apart because nobody works, and millionaire arts patron Timon gets hustled by fast-talking artists.
It’s a wickedly topical camp musical in the spirit of John Fisher’s TITUS!
Come to sing. Come to laugh.
No reservation required but please arrive early for seats up-close. Rhino Subscribers have reserved seats.

|The 37th Theatre Rhinoceros Season|
Theatre Rhinoceros Offers 4 Premieres and a Special Event
The Battle of Midway, lesbians in lock-up, Alan Turning, indoors, outdoors… It’s the 2014-15 Rhino Season! This season we present three premieres, three musicals, two dramas, one outdoor spectacle and a rollicking good time! Join us for thrills, spills, and trills! It’s our thirty-seventh anniversary season as the longest running queer theatre anywhere!
Theatre Rhino begins its “Season of Queer Adventure” with a premiere camp-musical by John Fisher and Don Seaver The Battle of Midway: Live! Onstage! and then we present the San Francisco premiere of David Mamet’s searing prison drama (about a lesbian inmate on the day of her possible parole) The Anarchist. But just before the opening of Mamet we have our annual New Year’s Eve Spectacular – this year a one show only presentation of Morris Bobrow’s hysterical musical Shopping! The season continues with the return to San Francisco, after many years, of Hugh Whitemore’s heart wrenching bio-drama about Alan Turing Breaking the Code: the story of the gay man who invented the computer and suffered persecution in the 1950s for breaking England’s sexual code. And finally we go outdoors for a musical extravaganza based on Shakespeare: Timon! The Musical!
Additional play information and season subscription offers are available on the 2014-15 Season page of the website.
