Announcing our 2021 season

Sanctuary City

By Martyna Majok
West Coast premiere
Peet’s Theatre
Starts late winter 2021

Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok brings us an urgent story about the power of perseverance, the promise of safety, and the question of who is entitled to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. Two young DREAMers fight like hell to establish a place for themselves in America, the only country they know as home. Berkeley Rep is proud to give this unforgettable play its West Coast premiere.

“If Martyna Majok’s talent weren’t so impressive and her subject so imperative, it would be easy to leave her in peace with her Pulitzer. But the American theatre needs her sensibility right now.”—Los Angeles Times

Wintertime

By Charles L. Mee
Directed by Les Waters
Roda Theatre
Starts late winter 2021

Berkeley Rep welcomes back Charles L. Mee and Les Waters, who have brought so much delight to our audiences with shows such as Fêtes de la Nuit and Big Love. With a wink to Magritte, a nod to Shakespeare, and a toast to the Greeks, Wintertime plunges us gleefully into the center of the strange and surreal terrain we call love. Jonathan brings Ariel to his family’s summer house in the winter woods and plans to propose. Then his mother Maria arrives with her lover Francois, and his father Frank shows up with his lover Edmund—and soon nothing goes as planned. Generously embracing this family in all their chaotic, beautiful humanity, this exhilarating rollercoaster of a play whisks us up the peaks of romance, then down to the depths of jealous despair, never letting us forget that love, like life, is always in motion.

“Wacky, elegant and amazingly buoyant”—Variety

Octet

A Chamber Choir Musical
By Dave Malloy
Directed by Annie Tippe
West Coast premiere
Peet’s Theatre
Starts spring 2021

Three-time Tony Award nominee Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) makes his Berkeley Rep debut with his latest award-winning off-Broadway hit, Octet. Eight internet addicts gather IRL to share their stories via a transcendent score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by online comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry. More than a takedown of our smartphone addictions, Octet is a sublime and revelatory experience that asks how we can find ways to be truly present with each other.

We are in discussions to include Octet in our 2021 season. Check back for updates!

Critic’s Pick “Beautiful and absorbing! You’ll feel reassured, alarmed, enlightened and truly thrilled by what you hear.”—New York Times

“Revelatory! Exactly what theatre is for.”—The New Yorker

Cambodian Rock Band

Written by Lauren Yee
Featuring songs by Dengue Fever
Directed by Chay Yew
A Signature Theatre Production
Roda Theatre
Starts spring 2021

The award-winning hit show that rocked audiences across the country and off Broadway comes to Berkeley Rep! In this darkly funny, electric new play with music, a young woman attempts to piece together her family history and bring a Khmer Rouge war criminal to justice 30 years after her father fled Cambodia. With a live band playing contemporary Dengue Fever hits and classic Cambodian oldies, this thrilling story toggles back and forth in time as father and daughter face the music of the past. San Francisco-born, Steinberg Award-winning playwright Lauren Yee receives her Berkeley Rep debut with Cambodian Rock Band, which was developed in our Ground Floor Summer Residency Lab.

“Yee has made her characters so joyfully and ridiculously human that it’s impossible—to a heartbreaking degree—not to identify with them.”—Los Angeles Times

“A haunting, wise, political and personally searing show”—Chicago Tribune

Swept Away

Book by John Logan
Music and lyrics by The Avett Brothers
Music arrangements and orchestrations by Chris Miller and Brian Usifer
Choreography by David Neumann
Directed by Michael Mayer
World premiere
Peet’s Theatre
Starts late spring 2021

Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) blew the roof off Berkeley Rep in 2009 with Green Day’s American Idiot. Now he returns with a captivating world premiere musical, this time featuring a book by Tony Award-winning stage and screen writer John Logan (Red, Broadway’s Moulin Rouge!, Skyfall, Gladiator), and music and lyrics by “America’s biggest roots band” (Rolling Stone) and multiple Grammy Award nominee The Avett Brothers.

1888, off the coast of New Bedford, MA. When a violent storm sinks their whaling ship, the four surviving souls—a young man in search of adventure, his older brother who has sworn to protect him, a captain at the end of a long career at sea, and a worldly first mate who has fallen from grace—each face a reckoning: How far will I go to stay alive? And can I live with the consequences?

Produced by special arrangement with Matthew Masten, Sean Hudock, and MWM Live.

the ripple, the wave that carried me home

By Christina Anderson
World premiere
Peet’s Theatre
Starts early fall 2021

In this world premiere commissioned by Berkeley Rep, playwright Christina Anderson exquisitely evokes a story about justice, legacy, memory, and the ultimate challenge of forgiveness. Janice’s parents are prominent activists fighting for the integration of public swimming pools in 1960s Kansas. As injustice penetrates the warm bubble of her childhood, Janice grows apart from her family and starts a new life far away. When she receives a call asking her to speak at a ceremony honoring her father, she must decide whether she’s ready to reckon with her political inheritance and a past she has tried to forget.

“Anderson is a gifted playwright you want to pay attention to. She has the voice of a poet”—Variety

Goddess

Conceived by Saheem Ali
Music and lyrics by Michael Thurber
Book by Jocelyn Bioh
Additional material by Mkhululi Z. Mabija
Directed by Saheem Ali
World premiere
Roda Theatre
Starts fall 2021

Berkeley Rep presents the world premiere of a sultry new musical with a book by award-winning playwright Jocelyn Bioh (School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play), a score by composer Michael Thurber, and conceived by director Saheem Ali. A young man returns home to the coastal city of Mombasa, Kenya to marry his fiancée and step into his family’s political dynasty. But when he visits Moto Moto—a steamy afro-jazz club and the stomping ground of his youth—he finds himself drawn to a mysterious new singer. Inspired by the myth of Marimba, who created beautiful songs from her heartbreak, Goddess is infused with contemporary romance, ancient magic, and the irresistible vibes of African, jazz, and R&B music.

Frequently asked questions

Welcome to our 2021 season! This year has been unlike any other, and we anticipate you may have some questions about our plans to reopen, our new packages, and our safety guidelines. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we navigate this uncharted territory. Please continue to check back for updates.

Regarding the 2021 season

Why did you change the subscription packages?

Our goal was to simplify our subscription packages and provide better alternatives. The Rep 7-Play is the same as our previous 7-play Full Season package and affords you the highest savings over single ticket prices. We decided to introduce two new packages, Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport, to allow more people to enjoy some of the perks of a subscription but with more flexible and affordable options.

What happens if a show is canceled or postponed?

The launch of our 2021 season is a promise to our patrons that we will serve the community again after it is deemed safe to reopen. Our primary concern is to ensure the health and well-being of our patrons. In the event we have to cancel a production, we will offer our patrons the option to donate their tickets, receive an account credit, or receive a refund. If we need to postpone a production, we will automatically move your tickets to a comparable date within the new run of the show. If you need to exchange your tickets within that run you can do so at no additional cost.

What measures will you take to keep audiences safe?

Berkeley Rep will comply with all local requirements for public assembly and with CDC recommendations that pertain to areas of public assembly. Our top priority is to ensure you feel safe and comfortable in our home.

Will you remove seats to maintain physical distance?

We will not reopen until we can do so in a safe manner at our current seat capacity. We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety and well-being of each and every one of our patrons.

What if I renew now but decide later I don’t feel safe?

If we find we need to postpone or cancel a production due to safety issues, we will provide options at that time on how to manage your tickets. It is our intention to deliver the season as planned, but we appreciate your understanding and flexibility if changes need to be made to ensure your safety.

I don’t feel safe until a vaccine is available. What options do I have?

We understand this is a moment of uncertainty. Although we will not open our doors until the CDC deems it safe to do so, some will still want to wait until a vaccine is readily available. With our Rep-Flex, you can commit to supporting Berkeley Rep on your terms with the utmost flexibility. Use your tickets throughout the 2021 season when you are ready.

If I don’t renew for the 2021 season, will I lose my seats?

The only way to retain your seats is to renew your 2021 subscription. Otherwise, your seats will be released upon the deadline for renewal (to be announced) and made available to other patrons. The health and survival of our organization is very much dependent on the support of our community. Our subscriptions account for a large percentage of our income. We encourage you to renew to not only retain your current seats, but to help us ensure all of our seats will be available for future seasons.

When is the deadline for renewal?

In a normal year you would have received your Berkeley Rep subscription renewal form in March. But I think we can all agree that this isn’t a normal year. The season we launched is scheduled to start in late winter 2021. Between now and our first performance, we anticipate there will be many health and community updates that will require our flexibility. Therefore, we find it difficult to give you a realistic deadline for renewal at this point. When we are able to determine this deadline, we will give you at least a month’s notice via email.

What we ask of you now is to renew your subscription to Berkeley Rep when you can, knowing those funds account for a large portion of our operations and survival. Think of it as your investment in the future, a commitment to your 2021 self that you will once again enjoy seven nights of great stories told by extraordinary artists. It’s our promise to be there for each other.

When do single tickets go on sale?

In the past we have put single tickets to all of our season shows on sale in August. For the 2021 season, we are doing it differently. Single tickets for each show will go on sale 10 weeks in advance of that show’s first performance. Rep 7-Play subscribers will already have their dates secured. Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport subscribers will be able to book their tickets to each show two weeks in advance of the public on-sale date.

Changes to payment options for the 2021 season

How can I pay for the Rep 7-Play, Rep-Flex, and Rep-Passport?

For the safety of our staff we are only accepting credit card payments, and we are only accepting them online or over the phone at 510 647–2949, Tuesday–Saturday, 11am–7pm. (Please be prepared for long phone hold times as our staffing has been reduced as a result of the pandemic.) Our physical box office location is temporarily closed, and we will not be mailing out subscription invoices this year.

I’m a renewing subscriber. Can you mail me an invoice like you did before?

Due to the extenuating circumstances of the pandemic, we do not have the resources to print and mail invoices this year. If you have an active email address on file, you will receive an email from us inviting you to renew your subscription online or by phone. If you do not have an active email address on file, you will likely receive an automated phone call inviting you to renew online or by phone. Or, if you’re a 2019–20 7-play or 5-play subscriber, click here to renew online or call 510 647–2949, Tuesday–Saturday, 11am–7pm.

How do I apply my account credits to my purchase?

There are two ways you can apply account credits to your purchase. You can complete your order online, paying the full price of the subscription/package, and we will apply your credits after the fact and issue you a refund for the difference to your credit card. Or, if you wish to apply your credits immediately, you can complete your order by phone at 510 647–2949, Tuesday–Saturday, 11am–7pm.

Regarding the new Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport

Can I buy a Rep-Flex at any time?

Yes, Rep-Flex encourages flexibility in use of the four tickets. The package can be purchased at any time, however, due to the two-ticket maximum per production, it will not be available for purchase after our sixth season show closes.

Can I use all four tickets on one show?

You may use up to two tickets on one show, but otherwise you may use the tickets in any combination.

What if I don’t use any of my four tickets until the last show of the season? Or I don’t use them at all?

Rep-Flex redemptions are intended for use in the season purchased under the package terms.

Can I buy multiple Rep-Flex packages?

There are no limits on the quantity of Rep-Flex packages one may purchase. We suggest one package per person in your household who plans on attending our productions.

Can I buy a Rep-Passport at any time?

Yes, the pay-as-you-go model of Rep-Passport allows purchase up through our last show of the season.

Can I buy multiple Rep-Passports?

There are no limits on the quantity of Rep-Passports one may purchase. We suggest one Rep-Passport per person in your household who plans on attending our productions.

My friends and I want to sit together. How does that work with Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport?

Unlike our Rep 7-Play subscription where you are assigned a preferred seat, the Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport offer the ability to select your own seat at the time of redemption or purchase.

Both Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport provide an exclusive booking period before the general public. For best availability, we encourage you to coordinate in advance with fellow Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport holders to organize where you’d like to sit and redeem your seats during this exclusive window.

Can I select my own seat with Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport?

Yes. Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport offer the ability to select your own seat at the time of redemption or purchase. Both Rep-Flex and Rep-Passport provide an exclusive booking period before the general public. For best availability, we encourage redemption during this time, although tickets can be purchased anytime during the length of the run of each show.
