Now playing at the Shotgun Players in Berkeley, California, through Oct. 26th:
Two radical lives collide in this vaudevillian and exuberant original musical play by Seattle playwright and composer Chris Jeffries. In 1880, Oscar Wilde wrote his first play Vera, or the Nihilists, about a Russian radical Vera Zasulich, known as "the mother of terrorism." But was she? Jeffries brings these two complicated heroes together to create whip-smart tale about the costs of changing the world.
I have seen the musical, and it's very good.
