Danny Scheie looks like butter definitely would melt in his mouth -- and drizzle down his chin in greasy rivulets -- in this odd but weirdly hypnotic preview trailer for A House Tour of the Infamous Porter Family Mansion with Tour Guide Weston Ludlow Londonderry. The stage comedy by esteemed San Francisco playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb stars Scheie, and is about to receive its world premiere at Z Space.
We’re not quite sure what the veteran local actor is up to with those two innocent cubes of butter as the oom-pah-pah strains of Johann Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz play jovially in the background. But judging by the look on Scheie’s face, this particular "house tour" isn’t much like the sort of thing you’d get from a San Francisco realtor.
The show runs Monday, Mar. 29 - Saturday, Apr. 23 at Z Space in San Francisco. Information here.
