This review is missing a transition in the first paragraph. I never justify why I begin with the idea of screaming. But stick with the article -- this show is worth your attention.

Early in September I thought the Bay Area was having an unusually long run of good theater. Now I'm convinced we're in a golden age -- or at least a golden six weeks. Since mid-August, I've only seen one professional show that I didn't think was downright excellent. It's enough to make me doubt my critical faculties. But like I care; keep it up, Bay Area!

The Normal Heart continues through Oct. 7; info here.
