Theatre Review – Habibi

Fellow theatre enthusiast Katie Cruz and I recently attended a press showing of Intersection for the Arts and Campo Santo‘s newest play, Habibi, running now through November 7th. Both of us are big theatre people (you can tell by the way I spell “theatre”!) and would love to encourage more people our age (70 and under) to actually go see live performances. In the Bay Area we have all kinds of great companies and houses, including Intersection, ACT, Shotgun Players, Berkeley Rep, etc.

To begin reviewing plays, Katie and I had to come up with our rating system. First we came up with a lot of funny jokes that weren’t actually that funny and not very useful, then we came up with a system (shown below) that rates plays on a five part scale.

Hopefully that’s helpful. Anyway, on to our reviews:


The How, Why And What Of Waiting

Opening tonight, Waiting for Godot plays a two week run at our wacky arts space The Secret Alley. The Off Center and Collective Theater Productions produce this latest interpretation of the ahead-of-its-time Beckett classic by director Wolfgang Wachalovsky. Come see it for laughs, arguments, confusion and more.

The show is Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this weekend and next, all shows at 8pm. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets. The Secret Alley is at 180 Capp St. near 17th.
