This weekend marks several local community theatre openings.
The Tabard Theatre Company is sponsoring Inferno Theatre Company’s South Bay premiere of Galileo’s Daughters opening Friday, 22 April at Theatre on the Square, and I plan to attend the opening. Director and playwright, Giulio Cesare Perrone, co-founded Inferno Theatre Company with the actors in his production of his fifth work and has taken it on the road beyond the Oakland area to further their mission, bringing art to the surrounding communities. Perrone believes that theatre is a collaborative process and invites South Bay audiences to help celebrate this new play by joining him on this journey interweaving passions for science, art, and religion. See http://www.tabardtheatre.org/ or http://infernotheatre.org/ for more information.
Opening the same night is Sunnyvale Community Players production of Cabaret. While I’ve not become practiced in simultaneously attending multiple shows the same night, I plan to see Cabaret later opening weekend at the Sunnyvale Community Center. The Kander and Ebb spectacular, first appearing on Broadway in 1966, made even more accessible by the 1972 film adaptation, promises to delight local audiences.

Look for one, possibly two, of my new reviews on A Good Reed Review soon.
Though I can’t attend opening weekend, the Palo Alto Players production of Altar Boyz opens on Saturday, 23 April at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto. See http://www.paplayers.org/ for more information.
