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.

California Shakespeare Theater, in association with WRYD Productions and Robert Friedman Presents, brings you MacHomer – a one-man performance featuring TV’s favorite dysfunctional family in a hilarious multi-media performance of Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy, complete with video projections and puppets. The script, which is 85% Shakespeare and 100% hilarious, stars Homer Simpson as MacBeth and Marge as Lady MacBeth, along with more than 50 other well-known Simpsons characters.
MacHomer sold out in both of its previous Cal Shakes runs (in 2003 at the Bruns Amphitheater and in 2006 at the Roda Theater in Berkeley), and has played to capacity crowds across the United States and Canada. The show has also toured the world to rave reviews and awards in Scotland, England, Australia, and New Zealand.
