Master clowns Bill Irwin (Scapin, Waiting for Godot), a two-time Tony winner, and David Shiner (Cirque du Soleil, Seussical) bring their stage hit Old Hats to A.C.T. Their hilarious new work features original music, imaginative movement and a captivating use of technology designed to bring a smile to your face. Shiner and Irwin also co-created the Broadway hit Fool Moon, which ran through most of the '90s and racked up two Tonys, a Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards. A continuation of Fool Moon, the joyful Old Hats won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Alternative Theatrical Experience and the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue. Irwin took home his Tonys for his dramatic role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? along with Fool Moon, but he may be best known as Mr. Noodle from Elmo's World. Shiner not only originated the role of the Cat in the Hat from Broadway's Seussical, but he also wrote and directed Cirque du Soleil: KOOZA. This production features direction from Tina Landau, whose production of Saroyan's The Time of Your Life thrilled audiences in 2004. Learn More
Saturday Matinee, lots of traffic; coming from los altos took me exactly 1 hour, but I drive like a demon. Was going to PARK @ hotel Donatello, read that fee was only $6 - but by 1:30 that lot was full, the one right next to it was $20 flat fee (!!) but I parked there because didn't want any hassle. Take bart if you can, easy walk to ACT theatre.Old Hats travel • Sep 15 2014 star this tip starred

The program was very moving. Not as much humor as I've heard from him before, very intense.
This is the first time I've been in A.C.T. since it was refurbished - seats were very comfortable, sight line is great, and the knee space is wonderful!!!

It was great to have the opportunity to see this show. It serves as a very serious reminder of the prejudices and hatreds that many people face on a daily basis, and shocking to think that it was right here in the Bay Area not that many years ago....continued
Quotes & Highlights
“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
In playwright Brian Copeland’s own words:
“In 1972, the National Committee against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California a racist bastion of white supremacy. It was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS News and Newsweek magazine covered the story. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings—and then we moved to town.”
