Young love is hard enough without being a gay teenager in Nebraska. But Will and Mike translate the standard boy-meets-girl-and-makes-her-a-mixtape story into something far sweeter. Girlfriend - Berkeley Rep's latest world premiere - blends Matthew Sweet's music into a fresh story about two boys who graduate from high school into a summer of newly-mown grass, drive-in movies, and bottles of rose pulled from the nightstand.
Written by Todd Almond as something of a tribute to Matthew Sweet's seminal album, Girlfriend happily complies with Berkeley Rep's usual devotion to form and function, thanks to direction by Les Waters and choreography by Joe Goode. And when funneled through leads Ryder Bach Will and Jason Hite Mike , the show becomes a high-energy-leaping-off-the-stage-and-almost-landing-on-the-audience's-feet endeavor. The singing's pretty damn good too. So if you need a palate cleanser from all that carefully-constructed hipster cynicism or a nice high that doesn't leave you hungover the next morning, hop on BART and head to Berkeley.

I didn't know a boy had been added to me, the river says. Would you have given him back if you knew? I think so, the river says, I have so many boys in me, I'm worn out stroking eyes looking up at the day. Have you written a poem for us? And the river asks, did this boy dream of horses?

They're in a circle and the river says, I've never understood round things, why would leaving come back to itself? And a girl makes a kiss with her mouth and leans it against the river, and the kiss flows away but the river wants it back, the river makes sounds to go after the kiss. And they all make sounds for the river to carry to the boy. And the river promises to never surrender the boy's shape to the ocean. Go Greyhound A few hours after Des Moines the toilet overflowed.
