San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

On Saturday, for the third year, the 2007 Bay Area Rhythm Exchange presents performances by tap stars from Broadway, film and the concert stage; it’s all part of Stepology’s 2007 Bay Area Tap Festival.

OK, while they’re not household names to those except maybe the most extreme theater fanatics, here’s the cool lineup: Channing Cook-Holmes, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Deborah Mitchell, Sam Weber, John Kloss and The Unique Derique; the music’s being provided by Marcus Shelby, Sista Kee and Carlos Aguirre.

Last year’s show was named among the top 10 dance performances of the year in the Bay Area by dance critics. This year’s performance is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco.

Tickets are $16 to $22. Call (415) 392-4400 or visit www.cityboxoffice.com. To see clips from previous presentations, visit www.stepology.com.

Tex life

“Greater Tuna,” Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard’s popular stage comedy about life in rural America, is back. Two actors play all of the inhabitants of Tuna, Texas, where “the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.” The show’s onstage at 8 p.m. Saturday at New Conservatory Theatre Center, 25 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco. It runs at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 2 pm. Sundays through Sept. 16. Tickets are $22 to $40.

Call (415) 861-8972 or visit www.greatertuna.com.
