A CO-PRODUCTION WITH SIGNATURE THEATRE COMPANY
Three-time Tony Award nominee Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) makes his Berkeley Rep mainstage debut with his latest award-winning off-Broadway hit. Eight internet-obsessed people meet in real life to share their stories and wrestle their demons, using nothing but a pitch pipe and the transcendent quality of their analog, a cappella voices. With witty lyrics, shimmering harmonies, and virtuosic solos, Octet sings of connection, redemption, hope—and how we can be truly present with each other.
"EXQUISITE, GOSSAMER HARMONIES! TIPPE’S ACTORS SOAR!."
– San Francisco Chronicle
“A WORK OF GENIUS! EXTRAORDINARY, BEAUTIFUL, AND EVOCATIVE! THIS OCTET CAN SING!
