What happens when you combine Shakespeare with America's first family, the Simpsons? You get MacHomer, the one man show that blends comedy with shear amazment. It runs through this weekend at the Cal Shakes in Orinda.
If Homer playing Macbeth is not your cup of high English tea, head down to Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco for a more traditional approach to the theater. The SF Theater Festival kicks off this weekend at the quaint downtown park.
