Patron Mamas of the Stage: Berkeley Repertory Theatre Tickets

Tony-award winning Berkeley Rep has brought world-class regional theater to the Bay Area since 1968. Many of its bold debuts have gone on to Broadway and London over the years, and stunning talent such as Patrick Stewart, John Leguizamo and Carrie Fisher have trodden its boards. May 5 through Jun 25, the highly anticipated staging of acclaimed director Mira Nair’s production of the musical Monsoon Wedding will play at Berkeley Rep’s Roda Theatre. How’s that for making Mom happy? Tickets are $40 to $125.
