Z Space Presents” The Making of a Great Moment”    Playwright-in-Residence Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s follows up his enormously successful House Tour in 2016 with a new work that arrives in San Francisco as part of a “rolling world premiere” for a month-long run; the play tells the story of two actors and their ostensible quest to make and take a work of what they think of as “magnificent theater” that tells a story of notable human achievements on a national tour, which in reality gives way to an investigation into why we do what we do, what are we willing to sacrifice for the things we love, and what are the tradeoffs for pursuing one’s passion Opening night: July 29, 2017, with previews beginning July 26; runs through August 26 at Z Below; tickets $20-$50 available at www.zspace.org or 415-626-0453  – Z Space is pleased to present the rolling world premiere of The Making of a Great Moment, Playwright in Residence Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s follow up to 2016’s enormously successful House Tour. The 90-minute exuberant comedy is directed by Sean Daniels, and stars noted comedic actors Danny Scheie and Aysan Celik. Written specifically for their particular (and peculiar) talents, Danny and Aysan play Terry Dean and Mona Barnes, two Canadian actors on an extensive tour of their play, “Great Moments in Human Achievement,” across the United States … by bicycle. As they pedal themselves (and all of their gear) across the nation, reenacting humanity’s high points for small, semi-engaged audiences, the two face an ever-growing series of challenges ranging from breaking stage lights to blowing tires.

When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.Called “one of the most fully immersive shows ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is a record-breaking theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.

Aurora Theatre Company closes its 25th season with the Bay Area Premiere of SPLENDOUR, Abi Morgan’s (Suffragette, The Iron Lady, Shame, The Hour) riveting play about the fragility of power and the unreliability of language. In the dripping-with-wealth drawing room of a presidential palace, a Western photojournalist awaits the return of a dictator. She is there to take his picture only the dictator in question is running very, very late. The sounds of gunfire from the streets and rumors of revolution swirling in the air reveal that something has also gone very, very wrong. The dictator’s wife, her best friend, and an interpreter wait with her. They talk films and Prada shoes as their fingers lightly tap out the time. All four women harbor secrets and suspicions. All four are in danger. In a fascinating, non-linear structure, this lush piece returns over and over to earlier scenes, each time with the knowledge of what has been uncovered since. Compassionate, dispassionate, and icily probing, SPLENDOUR allows a devastating glimpse into the minds of four women as their world turns.Barbara Damashek (American Buffalo) returns to Aurora to helm this drama The Evening Standard called “Splendid,” and about which The Huffington Post stated, “…how good it [is] to see a play about power and human fallibility told from a female perspective,” and The Telegraph said, “In radically showing a tense, fracturing situation from conflicting angles, the play not only represents an inspired marriage of form and content but resonates strongly with our anxious age of ethno-political disintegration. The result is a mixture of perturbing comedy and gathering dread: shards of a drama we must piece together.” Featuring Lorri Holt (The Aspern Papers), Denmo Ibrahim (Betrayed), Mia Tagano, and Sam Jackson.  DATES:       Closes: July 23 SHOWS:        Tuesday at 7pm; Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm, 7pm WHERE:         Aurora Theatre Company, 2081 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA TICKETS:       For tickets (Previews $36; Regular Performances $32-56; Limited Opening Night Seating $65) the public can call (510) 843-4822 or visit auroratheatre.org.

BERKELEY  PLAYHOUSE TO CLOSE RECORD-BREAKING 2016-17 SEASON WITH TARZANBASED ON DISNEY’S EPIC ANIMATED ADVENTURE,PRODUCTION TO FEATURE SCORE BY GRAMMY AWARD-WINNER PHIL COLLINS AND BOOK BY TONY AWARD-WINNER DAVID HENRY HWANG PRODUCTION TO PARTNER WITH OAKLAND BASED “HOPALONG & SECOND CHANCE ANIMAL RESCUE” – ANIMAL ADOPTION DAY TO BE HELD AT BERKELEY PLAYHOUSE – Closing out the record-breaking 2016-17 season at Berkeley Playhouse is Tarzan, the pulse-pounding musical adventure based on Disney’s Oscar winning animated film and the classic novel, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Featuring a score from seven-time Grammy Award-winner Phil Collins (including the 2000 Oscar® winner for Best Song, “You’ll Be In My Heart”), and book by Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly, Yellow Face), Tarzan is the story of a unique family drawn together by fate and bound by love.

Tickets (ranging from $22–$40) are available by calling (510) 845-8542 x351 or by visiting online at www.berkeleyplayhouse.org. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.”It’s been a thrilling season at Berkeley Playhouse-the musicals we produced this year explored exceptional and diverse characters that were faced with singularly unique challenges. They were characters who broke conventions and exceed expectations of their family, their community, and even themselves,” says Berkeley Playhouse producing artistic director Kimberly Dooley. “Tarzan is the perfect musical to close this journey. First and foremost, it’s a fantastic adventure-the perfect summer musical. But also, it explores family in unexpected ways-Tarzan is clearly not like those who raised him, yet when he meets and interacts with those that he most physically resembles, he comes to realize that values come from within, and stem from those whom you love and respect, regardless of physical appearance or blood relation. Ultimately, you choose those you call family.”Featuring a cast of over two-dozen actor / singers, Tarzan will be directed by Berkeley Playhouse founder Elizabeth McKoy, and will feature choreography by Staci Arriaga and musical direction by Dan Feyer.Closes: August 13, 2017 at 5pm.Performances: Due to the unique performance schedule, please check the website for specific dates atimes.

Castle Happy is a full musical in two acts with 22 songs, presented in showcase format with a minimal set but staged, costumed and accompanied by piano.STORY: Castle Happy opens the night before Halloween, 1938. Arthur Lake, a young actor hoping for his big break, gets a lucky invitation to a lavish party hosted by William Randolph Hearst and his mistress, Marion Davies at their famous San Simeon Castle.

The hosts are enraged when they find Patricia in Flynn’s bedroom, but she defies them and declares she will run off with Flynn. To avoid scandal, Hearst and Davies concoct a plan to marry Patricia off as soon as possible – with Arthur as the target. Can they bend Arthur and Patricia, who have just met that weekend, to their wills? Will Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” broadcast be a matchmaker?
