Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

With more than 40 years of production experience, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley has developed a repertoire of daring dramatic choices, combing the best in modern stagecraft for distinctive voices in Broadway, off-Broadway and alternative theater. A four-show spring subscription provides an excuse to ditch office magic shows for general admission premier floor seating to four shows throughout the 2011 season. Pick up a weekday pass to fill your Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday evening with theatrical excellence, or upgrade to the weekend pass to catch Friday night, Saturday matinee, Saturday night, or Sunday matinee shows. The four-part flight through dramatic intrigue begins with The 39 Steps, a rapid-fire send-up of Alfred Hitchcock's noir classic, followed less than a month later by The North Pool, an award-winning racial thriller set in small-town America. Spring begins with Snow Falling on Cedars, a mystery adapted from the best-selling novel, and ends with the quirky post-modern musical [title of show].
Originally founded in 1970 to give high-school and college students a chance to hone their onstage skills, TheatreWorks dedicated itself early on to promoting new work that grappled with America's changing social landscape. Exploring the experiences of ethnic and cultural minorities, the group built a following throughout the subsequent decades, growing to its present size of 41 permanent staffers, an annual budget of $7 million, and 8,000 subscribers. Its New Works Initiative continues to seek out up-and-coming voices from around the country, helping new playwrights find their footing and prompting embittered older writers to test new pseudonyms.
