7:30 p.m. Friday: Best Theater Company to Hunt High and Low For 

Shotgun Players

The Shotgun Players are a lot like Elvis: You never know where they'll show up next, but it'll definitely be a vivid experience. Longtime Shotgun followers know that while some things fluctuate wildly -- the space the actors use, the days on which they use it, and sometimes the play (it doesn't always match what's in the subscription brochure) -- the basics are always present: fearless choices, intelligent plays, and the passionate commitment of everyone involved. For the past couple of seasons they've been working over the Greeks. Still on tap this year are Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, The Death of Meyerhold, The Water Principle, and a David Hare (Via Dolorosa) adaptation of Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children that'll be performed for free in Berkeley's John Hinkle Park in August. Dreams, ghosts, show tunes, and a theatrical wunderkind crushed under Stalin's thumb: You may not know where to find them until the last minute, but the Shotgunners are invariably on target.
