John Fisher and his all-Cal cast entertain San Francisco with Medea the Musical.  Next stop:  Los Angeles

Hit Musical
JohnİFisherİ(inset)İandİhis all-Cal cast have been entertainingİSanİFrancisco nightly with their new play,İMedeaİthe Musical. Fisher, a doctoral student in theİCenterİfor TheaterİArts, debuted the musical on campus. The play was such a hit that it was enjoying a long run at the Stage Door Theater. "Exuberantly funny," "A dazzling display," "Riotous slapstick," say reviewers. Fisher wrote and directed the play, and also acts as the director of the play, Medea, within his play. The actors and the musical director are all Cal students or recent alumni. Their next stop is Los Angeles. If as successful there, Fisher's next stop may be the Great White Way!
