Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Berkeley Rep's TRIBES
by BWW News Desk - Apr 2, 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. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast below! (more...)

The Safety Curtain: Hay vida musical más allá de Londres
by Javier A. Gabrielssön - Sep 17, 2013

Lo bueno del Reino Unido es que aunque no vivas en Londres, puedes disfrutar de musicales hasta en ciudades que no superan el millon de habitantes. Alguna recompensa tiene que tener su desastroso clima y su aburrida y grasienta comida. Residir, por ejemplo, en Bristol, te da la posibilidad de ver Hairspray, Ghost y Rocky Horror Picture Show, en el mismo mes, una mezcla tan estupenda como curiosa. (more...)
