Quick Theatre Catch-up: ‘Birthday Party’ at ACT, ‘Beautiful Oops!’ by BACT, and ‘A Fatal Step’ at The Marsh
A frustrating Pinter classic, an adorable children’s tale, and a sexy noir solo show made for a week of theatre only the Bay Area could provide.
A pretty cast elevates a rather rote story about the complications that come with sex.
I spotlight two shows in Playground’s “Best Of” festival, both of which focus on Bay Area neighborhoods.
One is a hypocritical gentrification drama, the other is a creative (if flawed) crime story.
