My husband and I have been season subscribers to B Street Theatre for years. They do such a good job bringing enteraining plays to the Sacramento area and the acting is outstanding. Buck Busfield, artistic director, writes and produces the annual holiday show, which isn't always about the holidays. :) Buck's show this season is Pail of Grace. If you're looking for something fun to do I highly recommend you check it out. It is very cleverly written and superbly acted. The play runs through December 30.

we've been subscribers for years too. I miss the true holiday plays though. it makes a nice cap to the year and it sets the tone for the season. I wish them well in building their new theater, but I'll miss the old location, despite the occasional train passing by outside!

I typically enjoy the holiday shows, too, but this play was outstanding -- holiday or not.

The intimacy of the new theater won't change; it will have roughly the same number of seats as the current main stage theater. What they'll be able to expand is the children's theater so they won't have to turn away so many patrons. I trust it will all be good. :)

Yeah, another vote for B Street. We take in an occasional play and were season ticket holders for the children's theater for years. You can get great bargains if you attend a "pre opening". We last saw a 2 person play where each of the actors played several characters. The devices they used were very clever and the actors were impressive. It was certainly different from most of the plays I have been to (and far better than most of the garbage at the movies).

For those who have never been to the children's plays, they're outstanding -- and always very entertaining for adults as well. It would be a great thing to do while the kidlings are on break.

We went to see Venus in Fur by David Ives last night. The play is brilliantly written and acted. For those of you familiar with B Street, Dana Brooke stars in this one along with Tyler Pierce, new to B Street. Dana always does a great job and Tyler was excellent as well. The play is hysterical and has lots of twists and turns. Venus in Fur is playing through August 11.

 

Also, B Street brought back by popular demand The Big Bang, one of the funniest plays I've ever seen (I've seen it twice over the years). They've already extended the run three times due to its popularity. If you're not easily offended, I highly recommend you try to squeeze this into your schedule. It's scheduled to end July 28 -- unless they extend it again. The Big Bang stars favorite B Street actors: Greg Alexander, Jason Kuykendall, and Chris Schlagel.

Those are two of our favorites as well as Vigil (hilarious!). And I have to add Venus in Fur now. I haven't yet gone to one of their imrov nights, but hear those are outrageously funny, too. I'm hoping to get to one soon.

Well, we have another new favorite. We went to see Other Desert Cities on Saturday. The play was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- brilliantly written. The B Street play is directed by David Pierini and is superbly performed by Dana Brooke, David Silberman, Joan Grant, Stephanie McVay and Mike DiSalvo.

 

Other Desert Cities runs through September 29. Go; you won't be sorry.
