Living in San Francisco, it's hard to imagine batting an eyelash when finding out that someone you know is a member of the LGBT community. No biggie. If anything, it's celebrated. Activist and author Shelly Roberts even said, "If male homosexuals are called 'gay' then female homosexuals should be called 'ecstatic.'" Well, not so much for young Kat Evasco, who, while discovering her own sexuality, was also discovering that her critical Filipino mother needed help coming out of the closet too. In Mommy Queerest, a one-woman program starring Evasco, she asks, "Can a mother and daughter really share the closet?" Along with sexuality, the piece (co-written by John Caldon) touches on topics like homophobia, abuse, and cultural differences. Uncomfortable? Of course. But Evasco uses razor-sharp wit and hilarious impersonations to focus on the humor of any situation. The play takes place in the intimate black box of the Tenderloin's EXIT Theater and is presented by DIVAfest, a local group dedicated to supporting and promoting female theater artists.

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 28. Continues through March 29, 2014
