The Flying Machine
There is everything right about this imaginatively written, wonderfully acted and amazingly creative recollection of the Wright Brothers' adventures—which includes an almost-to-scale replica of the brothers' first airplane, as well as actual historic black-and-white photos and film. Written by B Street's Jerry R. Montoya, this story tells the tale of these two bicycle-building brothers. It's gripping, funny and presented by a four-person cast of B Street regulars: John Lamb, Jason Kuykendall, David Silberman and Casey McClellan. Not only is this recommended for children and young adults, it will also be enjoyed by anyone who loves history, bicycles, airplanes, engineering, inventions, or a well-told tale. Sa, Su, 1pm & 4pm. Through 11/9. $15-20. B Street Theatre's Family Series Stage, 2711 B St.; (916) 443-5300; www.bstreettheatre.org.
