Quotes & Highlights

See an excerpt from “Citizen Josh” here.
“Beautifully staged…It’s smart. It’s very funny. It’s another highly entertaining evening with Kornbluth.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“Kornbluth is a writer with great originality and depth and a spell-binding performer. What more can you expect from an evening at the theatre?” -New York Daily News

Description

Everyone’s favorite Red Diaper Baby grows up.

Inspiration for Citizen Josh began with the election in 2004, when Josh Kornbluth came to the conclusion that perhaps, just perhaps, voting was not quite enough.  Citizen Josh weaves a web of smart, funny and moving autobiographical tales into a personal quest to engage the fundamentals of democracy.

Josh Kornbluth is the creator and performer of Ben Franklin: Unplugged, Red Diaper Baby and Love & Taxes, among others. He is best known for his film, Haiku Tunnel, and KQED’s The Josh Kornbluth Show.

This show is presented by Jonathan Reinis Productions in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
