Rice We just announced our Limited Season! We’ve got two premieres plus a special presentation starring legendary performer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Following its success with Brief Encounter, Britain’s celebrated Kneehigh Theatre Company returns to the Bay Area for the American premiere of The Wild Bride. Then we debut Black n Blue Boys, a powerful world premiere written and performed by Pulitzer Prize-finalist Dael Orlandersmith, which will be staged by Obie Award-winner Chay Yew. To top it off, Baryshnikov performs next spring in a special event: tickets for In Paris, a dazzling romance from visionary director Dmitry Krymov, will go on sale to our subscribers before they’re available to the general public. These new shows round out an incredible schedule that already includes three world premieres, a classic Molière comedy, and a remarkable script that won the Tony Award for Best Play.
