Sigourney Weaver, Ripley, and me.

Hey folks, I’ve been really busy with performances, work, and other tribulations, so I forgot to tell you all about this amazing show!! Uggg, I’m so sorry. But if you live in the San Francisco bay area, and you’re looking for something to do tonight, check out Ripleyweaveryayya


Scene Missing is six of the Bay’s best writers and comedians performing new work inspired by movie trailers–the literary equivalent of talking during the previews. This month: the films of SIGOURNEY WEAVER.

Those huge eyes, that tiny mouth, how can she be both childlike and horrifying, her chin has that permanent jut, her eyes bore into you, her hair is a living sun, it’s all so unsettling. Your heart is a bag of meat, you look at her, Sigourney, in her standard-issue tank and panties, no, no, you are the one who feels naked, not this woman clothed in fearsomeness, she’s possessed by god or the universe or herself and as she presses the button you hear the empty whoosh of the airlock, her hair flickers like a candle and as you’re sucked out into nothing, you catch her eyes, oh god. You’re my lucky, star, she says. My lucky, lucky, lucky star.
