BART takes you right to Addison Street or if you drive, there are parking lots nearby. I used a lot because my parking karma wasn't working well that night. But get there early enough so you don't have to rush to your seat.

There's a huge cold air vent above the last row on the right. Do not sit in Row K.

Quotes & Highlights

See an excerpt from “Citizen Josh” here.
“Beautifully staged…It’s smart. It’s very funny. It’s another highly entertaining evening with Kornbluth.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“Kornbluth is a writer with great originality and depth and a spell-binding performer. What more can you expect from an evening at the theatre?” -New York Daily News


Everyone’s favorite Red Diaper Baby grows up.

Inspiration for Citizen Josh began with the election in 2004, when Josh Kornbluth came to the conclusion that perhaps, just perhaps, voting was not quite enough.  Citizen Josh weaves a web of smart, funny and moving autobiographical tales into a personal quest to engage the fundamentals of democracy.

Josh Kornbluth is the creator and performer of Ben Franklin: Unplugged, Red Diaper Baby and Love & Taxes, among others. He is best known for his film, Haiku Tunnel, and KQED’s The Josh Kornbluth Show.

This show is presented by Jonathan Reinis Productions in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
