The Berkeley Repertory Theatre won a Tony for best regional theater, and this East Bay Theatre has the best show in the East Bay, bar none. The "Rep" is purely professional, with two theaters, parking garages for $5, great restaurants all around in the Berkeley's new arts and business district and located just two blocks from the downtown Berkeley BART station. The actors are professional, theater artists from around the country contribute and the Berkeley Rep's Artistic Director, Tony Taccone, is a master at play selection. This East Bay Theatre should be at the top of any theater lover's list, and it is worth the trip across the Bay Bridge to catch a show. The Berkeley Rep's RODA Theatre seats 600 and the Rep's smaller Thrust Theatre seats 400.
