Berkeley Rep’s OVATION: A Tribute to Tony Taccone

Save the date for the gala of the season, a benefit honoring artistic excellence

A champion of artists. An esteemed collaborator. A visionary leader. In his 22 years as artistic director of Berkeley Rep, Tony Taccone created a theatre where audiences could experience empathy and wonder. Where artists could explore and discover. And where a whole community—young and old—could connect through the power of stories. This June, join us in a Standing ‘O’ for Tony Taccone as he concludes his tenure at Berkeley Rep, now widely renowned as one of the premier theatres in America.

The curtain rises on Berkeley Rep’s OVATION: A Tribute to Tony Taccone on Friday, June 7, at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco. Fine wines flow all night long as guests savor piquant hors d’oeuvres followed by a sumptuous dinner. Unique treasures and one-of-a-kind adventures await in our thrilling live auction. Expect entertainment surprises as an all-star roster helps launch Tony Taccone’s next exciting act. We hope to see you there!
