Mikhail Baryshnikov and company are en route -- ready to open one of our most anticipated shows of the season. That's right: In Paris starts next Wednesday!

The show made its U.S. premiere in Southern California, and the reviews are in. Here's a bit of what people are saying:

“Sophisticated and often haunting…The piece has continued to resonate inside me, not unlike the memory of past loves, long extinguished though never completely forgotten.”—Los Angeles Times

“Intoxicated with beauty, brains and culture…A theatrical rough and tumble, half commedia dell’arte and half vaudeville, in which the genius lies less in the risky concept and edgy execution than in the play’s commitment to getting the emotion out to the audience through the tone, color and rhythmic flow that lies beyond mere words and gestures.”—Huffington Post

“While it’s a treat to see the master move, which he does toward the end of the 80-minute performance, it would be a mistake to come solely for him. This well-paced and quietly beautiful play, based on a story by Nobel Prize winner Ivan Bunin, is a dark, moving labor of love.”—Entertainment Weekly

Any chance of a giveaway/contest for tickets? I cannot afford them, but would loove to see him, and I am on the other side of 30 for the discount!

Hi Nicole,
Because the show is a limited run and is nearly sold out, we don't have plans yet for a giveaway. But if we do, it'll be on our Facebook page, so keep checking it out!

Too many 90 minute shows without intermission. This is not the theatrical experience I value. I want to see "conflict". I'm not getting it at Berkeley Rep.

Hey! I would like to state that you sure have built a stunning website. Also I can't wait to ask you one thing that I am interested about. Do you have an idea to write in a professional way or your blog is only a?
