The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in Berkeley Playhouse's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee -- along with some added audience participation and improvised moments. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture tweenage troubles at their worst, from "Woe Is Me" to "I'm Not That Smart." And the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tony Awards in its original run, winning for Best Book of a Musical.

Frank Olivier’s Twisted Cabaret and Pandemonium Vaudeville is back! It’s a zany evening of demented fun. Olivier and his hunchback assistant Flynch (played by Unkle Paul Nathan) and the Twisted Cabaret Band return for a limited 3 show run, performing their outrageous thrill-show with Olivier’s wildly funny characters doing 12 astonishing & hilarious acts – from knife-throwing, magic and contortion to fire-eating, juggling, dancing girls and more. Twisted Cabaret is a fast-paced astounding tour de force with the multi-talented Olivier charting the unexplored outer edges of comedy.
Since last here, Olivier, a Berkeley native, has taken his show ‘Twisted Cabaret’ from England to Las Vegas. Olivier honed his skills on comedy club stages, and in theaters from New York to London, throughout Europe and Japan. His ‘Tonight Show’ appearances & other television shows have made him one of the most sought after variety performers anywhere.
