Last night we went to see the bright river: a mass-transit tour of the afterlife, a new play by Tim Barsky, with music by Andrew Chaikin (Kid Beyond) and performances by Jess Ivry(cello) and bassist Safa Shakrai. Produced by T he Jewish Travelling Theatre, this retelling of Dante’s Inferno (sorta) is magical–one of the best things I’ve seen in a while. Tim Barsky, author and lead performer, is a delight, the show is pure poetry, and I am going again when they do the Berkeley run later in January. Turns out some other bloggers saw the show as well– Danah Boyd and Eric Jones.
