We are thrilled to be back in San Francisco after four wildly successful sold-out runs in 1995, 1996, 1997, and 2003. Superstar Matthew Rush, who was the headliner in 2003 (the most recent time the play was in San Francisco), is coming back to town for his encore performance.
Matthew Rush, one of the biggest and hottest names in gay porn today, will be starring as Jack Hawk, straight actor turned gay porn icon. This is the same role Matthew has played in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. After bursting onto the scene in 2002, Matthew became an award-winning actor and continues to be an icon in the industry today. He is ecstatic to be back in San Francisco, and returning to Making Porn.
Making Porn received its world premiere at the Theatre Building in Chicago in July of 1995 where it became an instant sensation. Productions then followed in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Columbus, Denver, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Palm Springs, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC. From 1995 to 2005, Making Porn played to sold-out houses and critical acclaim. This will be one of the first productions of Making Porn mounted in more than five years.
