It’s been a year since the presidential election. It’s not such a surprise now as it was then, but it’s a skewed world. And we are seeing Marsh performances in a different light. Shows we are doing, had done, are now differently relevant.
I am inspired that Jinho “Piper” Ferreira’s COPS & ROBBERS is returning to The Marsh Berkeley. Remember Piper? The rap star who became, is now, an Alameda County Sheriff? Opening this week, Piper’s updated COPS & ROBBERS is backed by HUNTER POETRY music, played live by musician WolfHawkJaguar and his band.
(Just FYI, Piper also has been selected by the Sundance Film Lab to develop Cops & Robbers script).
Cops & Robbers Opening night is this Friday, November 10. it will be followed by an after party in association with the Orisa World Urban Festival. So looking forward to seeing the show again. Really! And then go to the party.
Talkback: Ann Randolph
On Thursday, wonderful ANN RANDOLPH will be doing a talkback after Diane Barnes‘ performance of MY STROKE OF LUCK. Still in previews, Diane is getting some great patron reviews.
Brian Copeland’s NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN is Saturdays, Don Reed’s KIPLING HOTEL is Saturdays and Sundays and Mr. Timely himself–Will Durst’s DURST CASE SCENARIO, every Tuesday.
I like this quote from Kate Robards’ AINT THAT RICH, “a dazzling solo performance, one as mesmerizing and powerful as it is funny.” –SCMetro Theater
Hope to see you this week,
