Don Reed: Kipling Hotel

Presented by Marin Cultural Association at Showcase Theater, San Rafael CA

Feb 24 2019
Don Reed: Kipling Hotel

From the Best of the SF Solo Series, Don Reed returns with the picturesque story of his misadventures in an unforgettable retirement hotel in the electric-pink ’80s

The piece chronicles the true story of Don Reed‘s collegiate and Tinseltown misadventures in the electric-pink ’80’s.

As the awkward son of a pimp struggling with college and a merciless Hollywood, Reed tried being a stripper and a gigolo, but ended up as a live-in waiter at an unforgettable retirement hotel—breakfast-sandwiched between the elderly, employee drifters and drug-addicted dreamers.

A San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Nominee, NPR Snap Judgment platinum storyteller, co-star of the NBC Streaming/Broadway’s Hamilton series “Bartlett”—Reed is also the performer, director and playwright of one of the longest-running solo shows in Bay Area History—his highly regarded East 14th which he brought to the Showcase Theater as part of the 2017-2018 Best of SF Solo Series.

“Reed stretches his elastic features and voice to inhabit people of every race, age and gender.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
