Shelton Theater celebrates 25 years in San Francisco with the Bay Area premiere of Tennessee Williams' black comedy play Baby Doll. The story follows a virgin child bride and her alcoholic husband in a revenge plot of seduction and justice. The film was created at the height of Williams' genius and reveals the master storyteller's vision of seduction, empathy and cruelty in the Deep South. This is your chance to see the lurid, controversial tale by the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner who also wrote A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, among other classics.
The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare's first and shortest play, is a farcical onslaught of mistaken identities, fateful romance and family reunions. Not one but two sets of long-separated twins form the springboard to much confusion, slapstick and surprise as a family that once was lost, but now is found. You'll be immersed in a strange, possibly haunted, and madly wonderful land when this play hits the outdoor stage at the Cannery Ruins at 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa.
The story behind one of the world's greatest artistic masterpieces comes to life in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Sunday in the Park with George. Artist Georges Seurat is obsessed with finishing his greatest work, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, at the expense of all else -- including his lover, Dot. This production at the San Francisco Playhouse traverses history, pairing Seurat's struggles with the thematically similar foibles of a contemporary descendant named George. The result is one of the most innovative musicals ever to emerge from Broadway, and a deeply personal statement on what it means to make meaningful art.
Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights. The brilliance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's new vision of American musical theater -- in all its blow-the-top-off-expectations exuberance -- is spectacularly realized in both shows. Like Hamilton, In the Heights' style is ostensibly hip-hop, but characters sing and dance to a wide variety of musical styles and moods. Energetic and infectious, the show tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood -- a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. Enjoy this high-energy production at Oakland's Woodminster Amphitheater.
The acclaimed Broadway comedy One Man, Two Guvnors tells the story of Francis Henshall, an out-of-work musician who finds himself working for two bosses who turn out to be connected to each other in wildly improbable and surprising ways. All Henshall has to do is keep them from discovering the other exists, but mistaken identities, love triangles and wild lunacy are the results. An update of Carlo Goldoni's classic farce, The Servant of Two Masters, set in Brighton, England in the early 1960s, this production now comes to the Altarena Playhouse in Alameda.
This smash-hit political thriller tells the true and widely unknown story of how Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul, and her husband, social scientist Terje Rød-Larsen, planned and orchestrated top-secret meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, culminating in the historic 1993 Oslo Accords. Through back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics, common ground between the Israeli and Palestinian envoys is carefully unearthed. Oslo is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. See it at Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley.
The Resting Place is a provocative and intense look at an American family in a cloudburst of crisis. Filled with raw humor, piercing darkness and fierce love, this new play from Ashlin Halfnight addresses familial obligation, guilt and our own complacency and culpability in wrongdoing, asking: How do we reconcile our love for someone with the knowledge of their horrifying transgression? Catch the world premiere of The Resting Place at San Francisco's Magic Theatre.
Order is the name of the game in a D.C. proofreading office, but everything is a bit off on this particular day. It's 90 degrees in October, a costly mistake has been made on an important account and someone is going to get fired. As three proofreaders ponder their futures, they become both haunted and inspired by memories of a coworker whose body may have recently washed up on the banks of the Potomac. Who will be the next to go? Or are they already gone? San Francisco Playhouse brings the world premiere of fun whodunit Washed Up on the Potomac to Custom Made Theatre as part of its Sandbox Series.
Written and performed by sisters Genie and Marie Cartier, Yesterday Is Tomorrow: A Revolutionary Revue takes a satirical look at the past, present and future of a world increasingly hostile to artists and dominated by technology. Featuring singing, dancing, poetry, acrobatics, comedy, boy bands and feminism, the show poignantly addresses timely San Francisco issues (and many more) while deftly and seamlessly weaving amongst diverse performance disciplines. See it at the intimate Shelton Theater.
