Peek into the lives of a motley cast of characters on the morning of an English county fair in award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem. Johnny "Rooster" Byron is a modern-day Pied Piper of sorts, regaling folks with fantastically impossible stories while ignoring his young son in order to sell drugs. Everyone wants a piece of Rooster, be it the local officials who want him arrested, or local thug Troy, who wants to give him a serious butt-kicking. With frequent allusions to the William Blake poem from which its title is derived, this comic, contemporary vision of rural life in modern England was nominated for both the Olivier and Tony awards for Best Play.

I would give this production a "B." One of the major roles was miscast, otherwise
it went off well. As for the theater, the seats are very uncomfortable, seemingly
installed early in the 20th century when people were much smaller than they are now.
The staff was very courteous, and allowed me to make a seat adjustment..

- "Can a half-century-old musical about idealism and virtue be made relevant to 21st-century audiences? Based on the production of <em>Camelot</em> at San Francisco Playhouse, the answer is a resounding 'yes!'" --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.sfexaminer.com/sanfrancisco/a-lusty-memorable-camelot/Content?oid=2525581"><em>SF Examiner</em></a>
- "...the other standout is Lancelot's fabulous 'C'est Moi,' where he manages to tell the world of his incomparable greatness without feeling the least bit self-conscious. Heredia owns this song, as, in many ways, he owns the entire production ... squabbling knights, political ineptitude, sword fights and betrayal: perfect summertime entertainment." --<a target="_blank" href="http://sf-theaterblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/camelot.html"><em>SF Theater Blog</em></a>
