Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Local Theater Preview: 'Into the Woods,' 'American Night,' 'Dear Elizabeth,' and 'Gershwin Alone'

The season is winding down at the American Conservatory Theater, with its productions of Arcadia and Black Watch both set to close this weekend; and at the Magic Theatre, where the American premiere of Mark O'Rowe's Terminus closes Sunday as well. But across the Bay there is still stuff happening at Berkeley Rep and CalShakes, with the latter having just kicked off its summer season last week, and a small S.F. company is doing Sondheim's great fairy tale mashup, Into the Woods.

The Last Cargo Cult at Berkeley Rep

From defensiveness to disgust to an overwhelming desire to dive headfirst into a bowl of buttered mashed potatoes, money inspires more reaction in people than a Coen Brothers movie. Mike Daisey, first-person journalist and one of the finest solo performers of our time, takes full advantage of this emotional spectrum by guiding the audience through his deft arguments and witty commentary like a master puppeteer, benevolent yet incisive.
