Now Playing Onstage in San Francisco - Week of 2/10/2013 THE WILD BRIDE
Berkeley Repertory Theater
1/26-2/17/2013
The Wild Bride is back! The holiday hit that ran away with hearts last winter returns for a honeymoon engagement in 2013. Kneehigh Theatre comes back to America with a stunning show that asks…What happens when your father accidentally sells you to the devil? The San Francisco Chronicle raves, "Bride is a gift that keeps on giving. What starts in an enchanted, bluesy folktale world dips into creepy nightmare terrain and sails aloft on wings of grit, resolution and fantasy. It's a fairy tale for adults." Don't miss this devilish mix of vivid music and sweet romance. Please note: The Wild Bride includes strobe effects, smoke effects, herbal cigarettes and loud noises including gunfire. The show also features brief simulated violence and sex. If you have questions about the show's content, please contact the box office. Photo: kevinberne.com

RIDERS TO THE SEA & THE DESERTED ISLAND (L' ISOLA DISABITATA)
Sonoma State University, Evert B. Person Theatre
2/7-2/17/2013
A co-production of the Departments of Music and Theatre Arts & Dance. Music Director - Lynne Morrow / Stage Director - Danielle Cain The sea takes everything. "Riders to the Sea" delves into the world of a traditional Irish fishing village that lives and dies by the sea. Maurya is the mother of a family whose many sons have been claimed by the waves. Can she save her remaining son? A stirring tale made beautiful and atmospheric through the evocative melodic gifts of Ralph Vaughan Williams. "The Deserted Island" tells the tale of two girls stranded a strange island. When a ship lands, they are conflicted: Should they stay far away from the injurious world of men, or embrace the possibility of desire and love. Haydn's music is sublime, from the overture that contrasts dark and light themes, to sumptuous arias and the magnificent concluding ensemble. Tickets are $10 to $17. Sonoma State University students are admitted free for all performances. Presented in Evert B. Person Theatre.

Now Playing Onstage in San Francisco - Week of 2/10/2013 GOD OF CARNAGE
The Shelton Theatre
2/8-3/30/2013
The Shelton Theater presents Yasmina Reza's GOD OF CARNAGE translated by Christopher Hampton Don't miss the triple-Tony-Award-winning Broadway sensation God of Carnage, by Yasmina Reza (Art). The New Yorker calls this laugh-out-loud hilarity "ninety minutes of sustained mayhem." In unanimous critical praise for its Broadway debut, God of Carnage has been hailed "first class" (The New York Times) and "scabrously funny" (USA Today) and earned the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and three Tony Awards, including Best Play. Two upper-middle-class Brooklyn couples meet to discuss an incident of playground violence between their sons. Though the evening begins with polite pleasantries, it quickly descends into primal madness as tempers flare, loyalties shift and the parents devolve into children. Like last season's Art, Reza ferociously and hilariously strips her affluent, over-achieving characters down to their savage core. Performance Times: Thursday, Friday and Saturday 8PM
