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

What a delight! The story was rich; the effects (texting messages up on the screen) were easy for all to see and allowed the audience to read what the girls were thinking and "privately" writing to each other. There was comedy, drama, tragedy, joy, laughter, generational differences and time lapes that worked well. Very rich. Don't miss this.
Six women, three generations, one family. Over multiple holidays, a family gathers in a home none of them expects to long survive the rising sea. They do chores, text each other, and dance. They watch the birds and watch each other, while struggling for loyalty, legacy, and turf. By the end, everything has shifted and a new generation is in charge, but of what? Our Practical Heaven, the third Aurora mainstage production to develop from our annual Global Age Project, addresses the changing tides of communication, gender roles, and society in a place where even the notions of home and family remain fluid.
