During Small Business Week, the Board of Supervisors will be honoring businesses in each Supervisorial district for their contributions to San Francisco. This year, Supervisor Campos will be honoring El Rio, a Mission neighborhood bar that has been extremely generous and supportive of local community efforts. We are grateful for their recent fundraiser to help the victims of the Mission & Valencia Streets fire that happened in April.

Description: The Marsh is excited to announce the premiere of Ann Randolph's new solo show LOVELAND. Join Randolph as she takes us on the irreverent, hilarious and deeply human journey of Franny Potts. Facing up to the greatest loss of her life while flying from LA to Ohio surrounded by strangers, Franny stumbles her way from awkward confusion through the mystery, tragedy and beauty that unite all us. A stunning performer, Mel Brooks compares Randolph to the late Gilda Radner for her audacious humor, her generosity and her ability to take us from tears to laughter in the same minute. Randolph's previous solo show, "Squeeze Box," was the Winner of LA Weekly's "Best Solo Show" and the Los Angeles Times Ovation Award for "Best Solo Performer."
