Friend
Welcome, 2020! Hello, new decade!

What a wonderful “shout” out! How great to look out our performers and their performances over the past decade!
We will do more of this!

Dan Hoyle, The Marsh, and the many other solo performers that perform in Stephanie Weisman’s Temple of Talent are a San Francisco treasure and a rich set of a decade’s memories…The Marsh is a San Francisco blessing and a unique breeder of solo performance shows that originate here and often travel the world – most assuredly New York – and then return to their birth place for revivals and often updates. No one exemplifies any better the gripping, funny, heart-warming, and true-life tales that founder Stephanie Weisman has helped spawn since 1989 than one of her most prolific and talented perennial stars (among many), Dan Hoyle (Tings Dey Happen, The Real Americans, Each and Everything, Border People, The Marsh, Almost the Entire Decade.
