Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Rated 4.0

We all have them: terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days. We just forget the slights and injustices that plagued us as kids are just miniature crises we go through as adults. We still get gum in our hair, don't always get the cereal prize, get snubbed by friends, and do wish we could just escape to Australia. The B Street Theatre Family Series' 90-minute version of Judith Viorst's 1972 book follows the story of Alexander; is supplemented by funny, appropriate songs; and shines with a wonderfully engaged cast who endears themselves to kids and adults alike. Sa, Su 1 & 4pm. Through 6/1. $15-$20. B Street Theatre, 2727 B St.; (916) 443-5300;
