Friday, June 29, 2007 - Theater in Brief:

"Great Men of Genius" -- Four one-man shows by Mike Daisey, dealing with P.T. Barnum, Nikola Tesla, L. Ron Hubbard and Bertolt Brecht, bring a bizarre and wonderful sort of solo theater to Berkeley Rep's Thrust Stage. Daisey, who blends hilarious recollections from his own life into blisteringly funny tales of these geniuses, plays the story of each character Wednesdays-Saturdays, and does all four pieces on Sundays. Closes July 1.
