Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre presents NOISES OFF at the Firehouse Arts Center Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre presents NOISES OFF at the Firehouse Arts Center
by BWW News Desk on December 14, 2017 in Sacramento

Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre presents the Tony Award winning play Noises Off by Michael Frayn. Michael Frayn's Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe's production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and of course flying sardines! (more...)

by BWW News Desk on December 11, 2017 in Sacramento

The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis, is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Izzard as part of his Believe Me tour on Wednesday, February 28 at 8 p.m. in Jackson Hall. This funny and emotional show reveals the man behind the stand-up with all of the fascination with the ridiculous that fans expect from an Eddie Izzard performance. Izzard's first book, Believe Me, was just chosen by Bill Gates as one of the 5 Amazing Books I Read This Year . Writing with the same candor and insight evident in his comedy, Izzard reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, boarding school, and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running and philanthropy. Honest and generous, Izzard's Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far. (more...)
