Berkeley Rep to Stage Nina Raine's TRIBES, Begin. 4/11Berkeley Rep to Stage Nina Raine's TRIBES, Begin. 4/11
by BWW News Desk - Mar 11, 2014

Berkeley Repertory Theatre continues the second half of its season with Tribes, a sophisticated and moving family drama by celebrated British playwright Nina Raine. Her profound and powerful new play became an award-winning hit in London and New York. Now renowned director Jonathan Moscone brings it to Berkeley Rep this April for its Bay Area premiere. Tribes follows Billy, a young man who was born deaf into a loquacious and highly opinionated academic family who raised him to lip-read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia - raised by Deaf parents and going deaf herself - Billy decides it's time to speak on his own terms and to be heard. Playing out in words, sign language, and sometimes mesmerizing silence, this penetrating drama examines familial love, notions of belonging, and the intersections of communication. Tribes start previews Friday, April 11, opens on April 16, and closes on Sunday, May 11, 2014. (more...)

Shakespeare On Film Spotlight: THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSORShakespeare On Film Spotlight: THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR
by Pat Cerasaro - Jun 26, 2011

Coming quick and sprightly on the heels of the smash-hit movie theater presentation of Stephen Sondheim's COMPANY, Shakespeare's Globe London Cinema Series is setting out to do for Shakespeare and classical theatre what COMPANY did for Sondheim and musicals with THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR. Beginning on Monday, hundreds of select movie theaters nationwide will present a special showing of Shakespeare's coy and daring comedy THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR as the inaugural showing of The Globe London Cinema Series, and, with it, we, as the avid audience, will be ushered into a new era for Shakespeare - both live and on film. How easily and affordably we may now witness world-class entertainment from the very front rows of the finest playhouses in the world in the way only a special event cinema broadcast such as Shakespeare's Globe London Cinema Series presentation of THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR can provide! Such are the joys of traveling to the nearest multiplex near you hosting a Shakespeare's Globe presentation - such as on Monday at 6:30 PM with MERRY WIVES - as opposed to a transatlantic flight and accommodations in the UK were you to try to catch the show live and in person (with the hope to score some rare tickets). Plus, you can't beat these seats - or the sights and sounds only the real, true home of W.S. - The Globe - can supply. (more...)
