The Marsh San Francisco presents “Aren’t You…?”
August 18 @ 7:30 pm - 8:40 pm$25 – $100
After a successful East Bay run, Fred Pitts’ “Aren’t You…?” comes to The Marsh San Francisco. In this lauded solo work, Pitts recounts his hilarious journey to visit all 21 California Mission churches, where he discovers that being black makes him an instant celebrity – the question is which one? “Aren’t You…?” follows Pitts on a summer-long tour to one Mission after the next, encountering docents and fellow tourists. Some are experts on the Catholic Church, a few are experts on Native American history, others are experts on…everything else. Yet, they have one thing in common: they are all experts on which famous black person he resembles. Full of Pitts’ personal experiences and love of history, “Aren’t You…?” perfectly blends delightful insights into the Missions, cogent thoughts on early California settlers’ interactions with Native Americans, and the experience of walking in the shoes of an African American male.
