Nice article about "Africa Onstage" (Arts & Entertainment) starting July 5 at Stanford. I want to mention that there is a Patron's preferance. Join the new Patrons Circle for $120 covering the entire Stanford Summer Theater season -- for the cost of three shows, you get four shows. As a member, you can join the fun at the pre-show gala on Saturday, July 7. ("Tings Dey Happen" by Dan Hoyle...an amazing one-man live show). Meet the artists and the cast, geat food, and Afro-jazz music.
