An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is delightful den of comedic genius.
Corridos! The Remix by Luis Valdez, writer of Zoot Suit and winner of a 2016 National Medal of the Arts, is a unique fusion of music, theatre, opera, mime and comedy. While the title is Spanish, the songs and stories come from the Latino, African American, Asian, Portuguese and French cultures, using both traditional and contemporary material and music.
Every once in a while a musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark musical can. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alison Bechdel, Fun Home is the bold new Tony Award-winning Best Musical that introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, with book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask, directed by Michael Mayer, has received rave reviews and is the winner of four 2014 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival. It was also awarded Best Musical Revival by the Drama Desk Awards, Drama League Awards, and Outer Critics Circle Awards.
Based on the great French-Italian play and film, but most well known as a blockbuster Broadway musical that won 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, this is a rousing anthem that celebrates love, romance and being true to yourself. La Cage aux Folles, presented in the gritty style of an underground French Cabaret, glimmers with French flair, a wink and a grin at lifestyles and mores that seem at odds until they crumble under the power of love to transform.
You're invited to the wedding of the season! Award-winning film director Mira Nair brings her exuberant and sumptuous Monsoon Wedding to Berkeley Rep's stage in this highly anticipated world premiere musical. The perfect storm starts brewing when family members from around the world descend on Delhi for a nonstop four-day celebration of an arranged marriage between a modern upper-middle-class Indian family's only daughter and an American guy she's never met. But the bride is having an affair, her father's financial troubles deepen, and dark family secrets surface. The forecast calls for drama, love, hope, laughs, and a whole lot of rain.
In the midst of a whirlwind tour of European capitals, a young princess yearns to experience life – to explore the world beyond diplomatic dinners and Royal balls. Enter an American reporter, who, almost overnight, goes from covering the royal family to covering up her great escape. And in the span of 24 unforgettable hours, they discover the magic of Rome, the promise of love, and a secret they will share forever.
Silence!

Clarice faces her own demons—and a troupe of singing and dancing lambs—while racing against the clock to unlock Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill.
