Two-time Tony-winner Judith Ivey ("Hurlyburly, Will & Grace, Grey's Anatomy") stars in Harold Pinter's darkly comic classic at the Geary Theater in San Francisco. When asked what his surrealist plays were really all about, the Nobel and Tony-winning playwright famously replied, "the weasel under the cocktail cabinet." Whether you prefer that definition, or describe it as a "comedy of menace," "The Birthday Party" is pure Pinter. It revolves around Petey, Meg and their long-time tenant Stanley, a retired pianist, who lead a quiet life at a seaside boarding house ... until two strangers show up. Their presence turns Stanley's surprise birthday celebration into something much more sinister, which includes a high-stakes game of blindman's bluff and a mysterious blackout. A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli and Stratford Fest star Scott Wentworth appear in the company's new production. [less-]

Playwright, pianist and actor Hershey Felder is famed for bringing musical greats like Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Franz Liszt and more to life via a series of engaging and acclaimed solo shows. His latest subject is Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who's not only considered one of Russia's greatest composers -- he's widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. Renowned for world-famous compositions like "Sleeping Beauty", "Swan Lake", "The Nutcracker" and countless ferocious and brilliant symphonies, Tchaikovsky died mysteriously at the age of 53, only nine days after conducting the premiere of his enigmatic Symphony No. 6. Now, Felder pulls back the curtain on the curious life of the beloved and tormented composer at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. [less-]

When a complaint is filed against one of the 70,000 teachers in New York's public schools, they're sent to a Reassignment Center. There, they sit and wait for their case to be reviewed.

When Matthew Shepard's life was taken in 1998, the residents of Laramie reacted to the anti-gay hate crime and surrounding media storm with anger, bewilderment and sorrow.

Few characters are as synonymous with seduction as the biblical character Salomé. From the New Testament to Oscar Wilde to Richard Strauss, Salomé has served as a symbol for the dangers of female sexuality for hundreds of years. As the story goes, Salomé, Princess of Judaea, requested the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter as a reward for performing the "Dance of the Seven Veils." Now, this charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the center of a revolution in an occupied desert nation. Internationally acclaimed theater director Yaël Farber draws on multiple accounts to create this urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre, the second incarnation of the adaptation first created at Shakespeare Theatre Company in 2015. See the filmed performance of "Salomé" at San Jose's Hammer Theatre Center in this National Theatre Live HD screening. [less-]
