The Tony Award®-winning MATILDA THE MUSICAL is the story of an extraordinary girl who dreams of a better life. Armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, Matilda dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. Rolling Stone calls the show “hands down the BEST MUSICAL of the season.” Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, MATILDA has won 47 international awards, and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages on Broadway and in London’s West End. The New York Post says "Once in a blue moon, a show comes out blazing and restores your faith in Broadway. MATILDA is that show."
Step right up and prepare to be amazed -- Ringling Bros. is coming to town again, bringing with it all the extraordinary things that make up the circus experience, and taking them to the XTREME. You'll be astonished by circus spectacles like high-wire walkers, a woman shot from a cannon, contortionists, strongmen, a menagerie of magnificent animals and hilarious clowns. It all ends in a truly extreme grand finale featuring trampolines, towers and BMX and freestyle bikers. There are some familiar and beloved circus acts and some you've never seen before and likely won't see anywhere else but at "The Greatest Show On Earth."
The most scandalous, most salacious and most mysterious red light district that ever seduced a wayward soul was San Francisco's own Barbary Coast. Back for season three, The Barbary Coast Revue is a musical that tells the story of the wildest niche in the Wild West. Your host is none other than Mark Twain, who guides you into the dark heart of this dangerous and bygone world. Meet fresh young fortune seeker Jerry Thomas as he battles saloon keeper Shanghai Kelly for the attention of aspiring showgirl Alma de Bretteville. Many of San Francisco's most colorful characters and cutthroats, including Emperor Norton and Lillian Coit, make cameo appearances. Plus, Connie Champagne stars as new addition, Ah Toy. Sing along to parodies of hit songs by Bay Area bands -- from the Grateful Dead to Green Day -- that tie the past and the present together in The Barbary Coast Revue, a success for the past two years, now back with a surprise signature cocktail added at Balançoire.
Possibly the most hysterical siblings since the Marx Brothers, Amy and David Sedaris have written The Book of Liz, a zany stage play about discovering your own self-worth. First discovered on NPR, David has since written a series of bestsellers which include Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked and When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Amy was the star of Comedy Central's Strangers With Candy and continues to be an ubiquitous (and hilarious) presence on film and TV. Together they have written The Book of Liz about the outrageous adventures of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock, a devoted maker of cheeseballs who ventures out of her tiny religious community to encounter a host of colorful characters -- including Ukrainians with cockney accents, restaurants run by recovering alcoholics and a certain talking peanut.
This clever series of comic vignettes by the legendary composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods) finds the still-single Bobby celebrating his 35th birthday in the company of his best friends, all of whom want to help him settle down and finally commit to a meaningful relationship. Over the course of dinner, drinks and even a wedding, they reflect on connections and commitments, shedding an insightful light on modern love, while singing hits like "Being Alive," as well as "Side By Side," "Another Hundred People" and "The Ladies Who Lunch." With a score by Sondheim and book by George Furth, the original 1970 Broadway production of Company received 14 Tony Award nominations, winning six of them -- including Best Musical. This latest revival comes courtesy of the San Francisco Playhouse.
Let your spirit soar as the actors of Berkeley Playhouse sweep you away with one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Winner of nine Tony Awards, Fiddler on the Roof follows the life of Tevye, a poor dairyman in a small early-1900s Russian village. Teyve attempts to honor and maintain the Jewish religious customs of his ancestors, but times are changing and his daughters are eager to follow the new ways. When dangerous forces threaten the village's traditional way of life, Teyve's faith and love for his family give him strength to fight for his home and the traditions of his people. This heartwarming show, performed at the beautiful Julia Morgan Theater, features such classic tunes as "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset" and "To Life."
Fast-paced is something of an understatement when describing Love and Information, which presents the lives of 140 characters -- played by a handful of actors -- in 57 brief and memorable scenes. Some of the scenes focus on the debilitating nature of depression while others are laugh-out-loud funny, but they all show different perspectives on the ways we try to make sense of the avalanche of information we receive every day. Written by renowned playwright Caryl Churchill (Top Girls, Cloud Nine), this witty and kaleidoscopic play -- filled with moments of joy, sorrow and beauty -- from American Conservatory Theater marks the very first production at San Francisco's brand-new Strand Theater.
When Steve Martin imagines a meeting between two of history's greatest minds, the result is nothing short of genius. In this hilarious and thought-provoking play, the year is 1904 and two aspiring twenty-somethings named Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso hang out at the same gritty Parisian bistro. In Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Martin plays fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune as the two icons muse on the century's achievements and other fanciful topics with infectious dizziness. Picasso's date, his mistress, an elderly philosopher, an idiot inventor and a charismatic singer from another era inject humor and absurdity into the conversation at the Beverly Hills Playhouse San Francisco Theatre.
Everyone flips for a flop in the mixed-up, utterly hilarious world of The Producers. Mel Brooks' Tony Award-winning Broadway musical is the story of broke Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his mild-mannered accountant, Leo Bloom. Desperate for cash, the two hatch a plan to produce a musical that is sure to be a failure. The show'll close immediately, then they'll cut and run with the unspent production money. What could possibly go wrong? Turns out, their "big flop" ends up as a smash hit, that's what. The Producers skewers the over-the-top absurdities of musical theater while delivering an unexpectedly heartfelt tale of true friendship. Come early and picnic on the grounds of Woodminster Amphitheater before the show for a perfect summer evening of entertainment.
Take the normal play production process, put it on extra-fast-forward and you have Shotz, a theatrical pressure cooker that puts talented theater groups to the test. Six groups are given two weeks to write, two weeks to rehearse, two hours to get their tech in gear and one chance to perform an all-new short play. Each month has a different theme, and with each group offering their unique take on the month's theme, each performance is full of surprises. This is the latest in a long line of PianoFight's one-of-a-kind twists on improvisational theater. These improv impresarios are known for putting on ingeniously interactive entertainments that leave even the hardest-to-please San Francisco crowds entertained.
