The fine print of a Groupon, the threat of a negative Yelp review, the "resume" of a cage-free chicken -- there's a lot more to the food scene than just food. Now the gripes and glories of being a modern-day gourmand have been turned into a hilarious stage show, Foodies! The Musical. This feisty musical comedy revue takes a humorous look at restaurants, eating habits and (increasingly whimsical) culinary trends. One of the longest-running original shows in San Francisco, Foodies! now comes to Danville, having won multiple SF Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Awards for outstanding music and lyrics. See a fresh production of this "show for everyone who eats" from the very talented Morris Bobrow, composer of Shopping! The Musical and Party of 2: The New Mating Musical. Learn More

Again this is one of my favorite small theaters. I love this space and I always enjoy their shows. Bus stop was good and enjoyable. More serious than I had anticipated. The cast was talented. Some spots seemed a bit slow yet that is how it was written or directed. Also, at times, I felt like a few of the actors were reading their lines versus really acting them. They did not do it throughout the play, just in certain sections every now and then. Excellent set and costumes as always. A nice evening out at truly one of the best theaters in the bay.

Great play. The cast did a wonderful job ... I especially thought the actor who played the young cowboy was excellent. Everyone at the Altarena always does such a great job of creating an intimate and believable atmosphere. Thanks for another...continued
A play by William Inge. Directed by Michael Ryken.
Long before The Breakfast Club, there was Bus Stop. It’s winter on the Great Plains, and a snowstorm near Kansas City has stranded a group of bus passengers at a local diner. During their weather-enforced overnight layover, the diverse group of strangers develop short-lived but revealing relationships as they learn about each other—and about themselves.
