A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music.

Winner of the Reader’s Choice Award for “Best Improv Company” – The Bay Guardian
Bringing their own brand of brazen humor to the Big City, the Oakland Playhouse Improv Troupe uses audience suggestions and their own dark and sordid lives to create hilarious improv comedy.
Audience members have been known to cry and even hiccup as they witnessed wringing sqids, anxious plungers, gibberish speaking experts on candlestick making and marital aids, depressed horseshoes, lying monastery valets, and fast-talking pogo sticks.
