A perennial problem for theatre companies in the Bay Area, and for Theatre Bay Area as their service organization, is that the region is bursting with an incredibly rich and diverse variety of theatre of which the population at large is unaware. Unless people are already tapped into the theatre community, it’s completely off their radar.
That’s why Theatre Bay Area is unveiling Bay Area Theatre Week, which despite the name is an almost two-week celebration of Bay Area theatre from March 26 through April 7.
February is a month for lovers. (At least that is what the greeting card companies invite us to believe.) However, beyond the commodification of partnership, there’s an exciting opportunity to reflect on what makes a good partner, why we choose a partner, how do we ensure the longevity of our most intimate collaborations. Theatre Bay Area explored these questions with four pairs of artists who work in partnership. They allowed us a tender glimpse into the magic of four of the Bay’s most impactful artistic couplings.
