Friday 7/28: An elegant tea gathering with music and the poetry of Lao Tzu’s Tao-te Ching in Clara Hsu’s original translations will include performances on traditional Chinese instruments (erhu, guzheng, and guqin), as Gongfu tea is ceremonially served. This should be something rare and special. $20–$25, 7:30 p.m., Clarion Music and Performing Arts Center.
Sunday 7/30: The Summer Poetry in Place Reading sponsored by the City of El Cerrito will feature Robert Haas and Michelle Lin. Free, 2 p.m., Arlington Park Clubhouse.
This week’s theatre recommendation is the SF Playhouse production of La Cage Aux Folles. Every summer, this leading Bay Area producer offers their original take on a popular musical. It is always good fun, and a big moneymaker for a company that produces a great deal of new and exciting work. La Cage Aux Folles may not be the cutting edge of contemporary theatre, but you’ll have a good time.
