The last play that Tony Taccone will oversee as artistic director of Berkeley Repertory Theatre opened recently. Taccone is stepping down after 33 years with the company. During his tenure, Berkeley Rep has consistently earned a reputation for excellence, in the Bay Area and nationally. It sent several works to Broadway, including Green Day’s “American Idiot,” — which won two Tony Awards and a Grammy — Carrie Fisher’s “Wishful Drinking” and the musical “Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of the Temptations,” which is up for 12 Tony Awards this year. We’ll talk with Taccone about his long career with Berkeley Rep, his plans for the future and his final show, “Kiss My Aztec!”
