A Comedy about Books and the People who Love them.
By: Karen Zacarías

What if your book club was being filmed for a documentary by a famous Danish filmmaker? How would you behave? That’s the scintillating set up of The Book Club Play, in which secrets are not only revealed, they’re caught on tape in this hilarious new comedy about books, the people who love them, and what can happen when friends start reading between the lines. Sprinkled with wit, joy and novels galore–from Jane Eyre and Moby Dick to Twilight and The DaVinci Code – this is a buoyant satire of a contemporary culture that loves a good book as much as a juicy show-all vid, and a testament to the joy of reading. Lights! Camera! Book Club!!

Will Mirandolina “lean in” and get it all? A rapturous and sharply hilarious 18th Century battle-of-the-sexes comedic caper about a woman trying to run a business in a man’s world, in a fresh new World Premiere adaptation by the director of the REP hits Noises Off, Sweet Charity and Rumors.

One of the Greatest Musicals in Theatre History.

Original Book by: P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolten and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse
New Book by: Timothy Crouse & John Weidman
Directed by: Michael Butler

Winner of the 2011 Tony Award for Best Revival.

As the SS American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of Cole Porter’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out of You”, “It’s Delovely”, and of course, “Anything Goes”.




October 23 - November 9, 2014
Created by: Sara Moore
Produced by: Thrillride Mechanics and Debra Mosk Productions
Directed by: Andrew Nance
Choreographed by: Matthew Martin

A stunning new re-imagining of the Alice in Wonderland story with Sara Moore, the brilliant San Francisco-based clown and her Thrillride Mechanics troupe. Told through music, dance and Moore's "hyper-comical Theatre of Human Animation," Wunderworld tells the story of an 80-year old Alice drawn back down the rabbit hole for yet another adventure. It is exquisitely wistful, heartbreakingly hilarious theatre.

"Hilarious. Fluid physicality and impeccable execution. Moore's talents are wondrous to behold! Brilliant." - Jean Schiffman, San Francisco Examiner
