The Marsh Berkeley Presents THE MARSH BERKELEY PRESENTS "WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT LOVE"
The Marsh Berkeley
2/2-3/3/2018
The Marsh welcomes a new solo show to the Berkeley stage, "What They Said About Love" by Steve Budd, which was awarded the “Best of Fringe” at the 2016 San Francisco Fringe Festival.

Budd sheds light on how people meet and make it to the altar, the push and pull of relationships, singles who can’t seem to settle down, and more. The Oakland based actor captures the physical and vocal nuances of more than a dozen Bay Area characters, using their own words taken from hours of interviews, and weaves in his relentless search for “the one.” "What They Said About Love" is directed by Mark Kenward and developed with David Ford, John Coppola, and Slater Penney.

A Chorus Line in Broadway A CHORUS LINE
El Cerrito High School Performing Arts Theater
2/24-3/4/2018
YMTC (Youth Musical Theater Company) continues its 13th season by presenting A Chorus Line at El Cerrito High School Performing Arts Theater. In 1976, this iconic musical won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, plus the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Set on a bare stage during an audition for a Broadway show, A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers. This production combines music, dance, drama, competition, and a celebration of the American musical for a moving theater experience. The music of A Chorus Line was written by Marvin Hamlisch, the lyrics by Edward Kleban, and the book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante. The show features a cast of 29 performing arts students (ages 13 to 21) from cities throughout the Bay Area. They are led by a team of professional directors, designers, and musicians, including Director Jennifer Boesing, Music Director David Möschler, and Choreographer Janet Collard. The production will feature a live 17-piece orchestra playing the original arrangements of Jonathan Tunick and Hershy Kay. “People forget that A Chorus Line isn’t just a play about dance,” says Director Boesing. "It’s a play about people following their dreams, striving for something that feels big, important, and against all odds. My hope is that this production, done at this time, will not be just a diversion but an inspiration for everyone.” A Chorus Line opens Saturday, February 24. Performances run for two weekends at El Cerrito High School Performing Arts Theater, 540 Ashbury Avenue, El Cerrito. The run consists of three 2:00 p.m. matinees (2/25, 3/3, 3/4) and three 8:00 p.m. performances (2/24, 3/2, 3/3). Music Director Möschler will give pre-show lectures in the lobby on “The Music and the Mirror—Kleban and Hamlisch’s Legacy of A Chorus Line,” on Saturday, 3/3, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, 3/4, at 1:00 p.m. ABOUT YMTC YMTC is dedicated to providing exceptional training to young theater artists through the production of exceptional musical theater. The organization brings together the Bay Area’s most talented and dedicated young singer/actors—as well as students of technical theater—with professional directors, designers, and musicians. They take on challenging and sophisticated musical and dramatic themes, and productions are always accompanied by a full, live orchestra.

A contemporary envisioning of the classic & infamous tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber returns to London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife.
