Coming up, South Bay!

From today's Chron-

San Jose Stage Company has announced a 2008-09 season that includes some familiar fare, one national premiere and a revival of one of the company's most popular hits. The company's 26th season opens in October with Jeffrey Hatcher's widely staged dramatization of Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw," followed by a new holiday offering, "Every Christmas Story Ever Told" by Michael Carleton, John Alvarez and Jim Fitzgerald.
"I Am My Own Wife," Doug Wright's Pulitzer Prize winner, opens in February, and Stage Company revisits "Cumberland Blues," the Grateful Dead musical by Michael Norman Mann that it premiered 10 years ago, in April. The season closes with the U.S. premiere of Kevin Kerr's "Studies in Motion: The Hauntings of Eadweard Muybridge," a new work by Canada's inventive Electric Company Theatre, postponed from the current season. Subscriptions ($80-$170) and single tickets ($20-$45) available at (408) 283-714
