For details, go to http://www.berkeleyrep.org/smallpress
Dates are Friday Feb 23rd, Sat Feb 24, Sun Feb 25, and Tuesday Feb 27th.
About the show:
For the past two years, Obie Award-winning director Les Waters has shown Bay Area audiences the best and worst of family dynamics in the luminous Eurydice, dark and disturbing Finn in the Underworld; breathtaking The Glass Menagerie; and edgy, enthralling The Pillowman. Now he reflects on yet another family with To the Lighthouse, a bold world-premiere adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s landmark novel. Just as Virginia Woolf’s innovative style exploded the boundaries of prose, this production explores and explodes the boundaries of theatre -- with brilliant new music by composer Paul Dresher (whose venues include the Carnegie Hall, San Francisco Symphony and Project Artaud) to further illuminate the lives of the Ramsay house and its inhabitants.
