Did the season premiere of Walking Dead leave you with a craving? Not to worry. The fine folks of San Francisco Theater Pub have your back. Over the last couple years they’ve done an amazing job filling the theater week’s dark nights with cold pints and footlights, interpreting the works of Václav Havel, Alfred Jarry, Euripides, Sophocles, and the Bard in an atmosphere that makes all that sophistication pretty easy to swallow. And we’re not just talking about the tasty victuals from their rotating pop-up kitchens. This outfit understands the diverse needs of its audience. A program of Muni-inspired plays, poems, and songs titled How to Ride a Bus in San Francisco might follow an evening of Oscar Wilde; a dense, labyrinthine night of H.P. Lovecraft can lead to ADHD-style Pint-Sized Plays, where performances last no longer than a glass of beer. Tonight, they have channeled your yen for the undead into a rom-zom-com called Love in the Time of Zombies. This is a tale about four friends trapped in a cabin, surrounded by zombies — that’s where you stumble in, dripping with BBQ sauce and groaning. So bring your rotting flesh and leave your modesty at the door.
