Valhalla onstage in S.F. through July 16
comedy Valhalla runs Saturday, May 20, through
Sunday, July 16, at San Francisco's New Conservatory
Theatre Center, 25 Van Ness Ave. The play intertwines two
stories and two distinct heroes: 19th-century "Mad"
King Ludwig of Bavaria's attempt to build a crushingly
expensive series of storybook castles inspired by
Wagnerian operas, and James Avery, a fictional misfit gay
Texas teenager in the 1930s. For tickets and more
