Review for Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have subscribed for over 20 years. I am a donor and have named BRT in my estate plan. I am a trustee. All of my involvement grew out of my long, favorable experience as an audience member. BRT puts on challenging works that address the issues of our time and give me much to think about. They do not play to the lowest common denominator, but to the highest part of the audience's intelligence. BRT supports new artists through its commissioning program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

numerous thought-provoking stage performances. Most recently, Athol Fugard's play "Coming Home" dealt with the problems of AIDs, racism and illiteracy in South Africa.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hard working, intelligent, dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Commission many new plays and support many emerging playwrights.
