You’ve seen plays, movies and TV shows, and the one thing they all have in common is … the script. In Closing Night, Fremont’s Made Up Theatre throws the script out the window and makes up a play on the spot, based on a title from the audience. That’s right. It’s an actor’s nightmare, but it’s an improvisor’s delight! Plus, you’ll witness a unique and hilarious format to kick off the show.
Similar to Whose Line Is It Anyway?, this fast-paced short-form improv show plays a series of improvised games and scenes based on audience suggestions. Laugh Track City is a great opportunity for the cast and audience alike to have a fun and hilarious time at Made Up Theatre.
Improv is comedy without a net, where daredevil performers depend not only on the audience for suggestions, but also on their fellow performers for support and Lady Luck for inspiration. Done right, it’s not just hilarious — it’s astonishing. The American Improv Theatre (AIT) Players do it right. Come laugh and marvel as the Players spin entire scenes from suggestions. The show begins with some silly, quick-moving improv games (Think Whose Line Is It Anyway?). Then the Players raise the stakes with longer, more connected scenes so good they seem scripted. But they’re not: Everything that happens at Black Cat Licorice Theater is discovered in the moment.
A favorite across the country, The Dinner Detective serves up a tasty whodunit along with a seated four-course dinner. And since this popular comic murder mystery is set in the present day, you’ll never know whether someone at your table is one of the talented cast of improvisers. In fact, everyone’s a suspect — including you! The event starts out with a reception featuring tray-passed hors d’oeuvres followed by the meal, which includes salad, an entrée and dessert. Between courses you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. Everyone gets a commemorative mug, and the top sleuth wins a prize package — and some serious bragging rights — at the end of the evening.

The genius of Dwight Yoakam lies in the power of his appeal, a force that attracts serious rock ‘n’ rollers (he started out opening for punk bands) to country music diehards (Johnny Cash called him his “favorite male artist”). What unites these groups — which also include hipsters, honky-tonkers and roots rockers — is Yoakam’s maverick blend of country, rock, Americana, pop and soul. He almost single-handedly saved country music in the ‘80s, his “cowpunk” sound rescuing a genre that had grown too slick. He has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and he’s a 21-time nominated, multiple Grammy winner. Don’t miss Dwight Yoakam in concert at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga. Alejandro Escovedo opens the show.
The compelling new drama Archduke tells the story of three young men who, with nothing left to lose, join Serbia’s secret military society on the eve of World War I. The destitute young men follow an unlikely path to terrorism in the name of Serbian nationalism. The deeper they find themselves in the organization, the more they learn about each other — and the closer the tale parallels the bizarro politics of today. The story comes from the dark, humorous, exciting mind of Rajiv Joseph, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award-winning playwright. Open your mind to a challenging and insightful journey you only knew a fraction about at Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

One Man, Two Guvnors at Palo Alto Players is a hilarious farce playing at the Lucie Stern Theater in Palo Alto. It’s London in the swinging 60’s, and recently canned (and desperately hungry) Francis Henshall finds himself newly employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancee’s gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother’s killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero’s other “guvnor.” Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. But with the distractions of a pneumatic bookkeeper, a self-important actor, and select members of the criminal fraternity (not to mention his own mammoth appetite) to contend with, how long can he keep them apart? One Man, Two Guvnors is a hilarious, music-infused farce, and one of the best- received comedies in modern theater.

Staged at Stratford Festival and named on many 2018 year-end critics “best of” lists, the Stratford Festival’s “riveting” and “exhilarating” (The New York Times) production of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus gets a screening at San Jose’s Hammer Theatre Center. The production is directed by genre-defying theatre artist Robert Lepage and stars André Sills. Lepage takes the story of the rise and fall of a legendary general who must face off against the angry Roman mob and infuses it with the energy of Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring. He “wrangles a difficult play into a heart-stopping narrative” (Chicago Tribune), “rendering a clear and cinematic version that’s riveting, invigorating and smart” (The Globe and Mail).

In the opening moments of Eugene Ionesco’s masterpiece of absurdist satire, a rhinoceros rampages through a village square. At the local café, people argue over what they saw.

From Tony Award–winning director Frank Galati comes an all-new adaptation of this wickedly entertaining show about power, conformism and mass culture.
