"Love is easy; peace is hard."

Jeff Raz, legendary Bay Area comedian and clown (Cirque du Soleil), puts on the big shoes of Aristophanes, the most satirical wartime playwright of all time. Mount Olympus is no match! Especially when he's armed with a troupe of circus performers and a music-mad muse.

July 30 - September 11
Outdoors at John Hinkel Park!

Feedback Central
We've finally figured out a way for folks to share comments about their experience with the rest of our community. You probably know this already but please consider the following before lettin' it fly:

  • Don't be mean. 
  • Don't write words you wouldn't say in front of your grandma or my daughters.
  • Don't go promoting outside causes.

Sound fair? Good. Now grab that keyboard and break it down.
