Review for Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Berkeley, CA, USA
Berkeley Repertory Theatre is the best. Every season has challenging, culturally relevant shows put on by top-rate directors and actors. This last season, An Octoroon was particularly thought-provoking for me as it looked at racism both past and present in the United States. I have enjoyed recent shows on the Black Panthers, football head injuries, and The Last Tiger in Haiti. Some of my Advanced Placement U.S. History students went to see Roe which gave them a clearer picture of life for women in the 1970's then I could have through lecturing. As a teacher, Berkeley Rep has a reduced rate for season subscribers so I can afford to see shows on my limited salary.
