Review for Shotgun Players Inc, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a season subscriber to Shotgun Players for several years. I look forward to their productions which tend to push the envelope-"edgy"-I think would be the current word. The plays performed are often challenging and thought provoking, plus the creative use of a small open stage is remarkable! I usually leave the theater continuing to think about the message(s). The outdoor summer production is fun, usually a bit bawdy, and always a good time! I will continue to subscribe and recommend others do likewise!

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

Attending many wonderful evenings at their theater productions

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Its innovation, creativity, and timely productions

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

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

I don't know-maybe have higher salaries? Not have to spend time to look for grants or underwriters, etc.?

Review for Aurora Theatre Company, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first attended Aurora Theatre plays several years ago, when they performed at a smaller theater in a Julia Morgan building in Berkeley; I was impressed then. Since then I have ushered at Aurora in it's newer stage in downtown Berkeley. I enjoy the intimacy of a small theater which gives one the feeling of being a part of the production-as in almost being in the situation being played.The plays that are chosen are intriguing and thought provoking-often with unexpected a humor. I admire the creativity in the use of a small open stage where sets are changed seamlessly and adroitly-in full view of the audience.An evening with Aurora is an evening well spent!
