On April 22 and 24 Britain’s National Theater again bestows on us colonists a stellar “live” London production. This time it is “The Habit of Art” by Alan Bennett (“History Boys”, “Madness of King George”) a fictionalized account of the encounters between poet W.H.Auden and composer Benjamin Britten. It shows at both the Elmwood Theater in Berkeley and the Lark in Marin. For those with a larger appetite for Britten there’s a special evening on April 19th at the Lark. It includes an award-winning documentary on the composer, a live acappella performance of his work by the Ave vocal ensemble and complimentary high tea. Doors open at 5:30. Tickets are $25. For more information call 415-924-5111.
