This is a past event.
When: Sat., March 7, 8-10 p.m. 2009
Price: $15-$35

Canadian stand-up comic and playwright Rick Miller can impersonate just about any figurehead from the last fifty years of pop music -- particularly one with a distinctively irritating voice (i.e., Bob Dylan, Axl Rose, Meat Loaf). But Miller's also famous for his dead-on renderings of all the principle Simpsons characters, who come to life in his fourteen-year-old one-man show MacHomer. A combination of Shakespearian tragedy and contemporary television that leaves large swaths of the original script unadulterated (Miller says it's "85 percent Shakespeare") the play shows an eerie similarity between Scottish general Macbeth and power plant worker Homer Simpson -- both bumbling, ill-fated men of great hubris and ambition. It plays Saturday, Mar. 7 at Pleasanton's Amador Theater (1155 Santa Rita Rd.). 8 p.m., $15-$35. MacHomer.com
