Coming Up at Actors' Theatre
A BROADCAST PREMIERE IN ASSOCIATION WITH BERKELEY REP
Premieres October 13, 5 p.m. PT
Availabe through November 8.
Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Lewis’ darkly satirical It Can’t Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. In 2016, Berkeley Rep unveiled a new stage adaptation of Lewis’ prescient novel, one week after that production ended, the presidential election roiled our nation.
Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production with the same director, but this time as a radio play in four episodes, just in time for the 2020 presidential election. We’re delighted to welcome back much of the original cast including David Kelly as the candidate Buzz Windrip, and to have Academy Award nominee David Strathairn join us as the liberal protagonist Doremus Jessup.

It is with great sorrow that we announce that our beloved Producer and Board President, Bonnie Ronzio has passed away as of May 22.
Bonnie was the driving force in our company for decades, and worked with love and strength as not only a producer, director, and stage manager, but her creative leadership offered us all a strong vision which allowed Actors’ Theatre to flourish even during difficult times.
We honor her life and her contributions. She will be greatly missed.
