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
There is an alley directly across from the Berkeley Rep where you pick up your tickets. Just cross the street, walk down the alley and the theater is plainly marked and is on your right. Remember that this is NOT first come first served. The tickets are numbreed for the row and seat.Not a Genuine Black Man info • Apr 25 2014 star this tip starred

As usual Brian Copeland is brilliant. I think this presentation which was his first is also his best. I must have been living hell to live in San Leandro then. It reminds of me the first black children who integrated southern schools.

“Copeland is a winning, magnetic performer who knows how to work an audience … a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Copeland’s ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldberg … Copeland is a genuine discovery.” —Los Angeles Times
“Engaging … Copeland knows how to spin a dramatic yarn.” —The New York Times
