The first time Anna Deavere Smith came to Berkeley Rep in 1994 with Fires in the Mirror, people were camped out on the sidewalk, hoping to get tickets to what became the first show in the Theatre's history to sell out before it opened.

Now, we're thrilled to announce that she's returning to Berkeley Rep with her new one-woman show, Let Me Down Easy, as part of Arena Stage's national tour of Second Stage Theatre's production. It starts previews in the state-of-the-art Roda Theatre on May 28, and plays through June 26. It's been 15 years since she's performed on a Bay Area stage, so don't miss out!

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Sunday, February 13 at around 10am, so check out the show page for the buzz and for the link to buy tickets!

I saw this show in San Diego more than 2 months ago, and I'm still talking about it! INCREDIBLE! I'm ready to buy tickets to see it again in Berkeley sometime again soon. Truly, RUN, Don't Walk!
