O BEST BELOVED is an ensemble theatre adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories." Six performers bring an assortment of these classic tales to life with original songs, outrageous physicality, over-the-top characters, and ebullient theatricality.
Equally enjoyable by kids and adults, O BEST BELOVED was named "Best Of Fringe" at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe Festival. Co-creators Rebecca Longworth and Joan Howard were also awarded a 2013 Stuart Award for Excellence in Theater.

"This show is a barrel of fun and giggles. I loved it!"
--Martin, SF Fringe 2013 Audience Member
"Well acted, well designed, ...a genuinely fun piece of theater. The level of commitment and craft [Rebecca Longworth and Joan Howard] were able to pull from their design team and performers was equally as impressive. Everything about the show felt thought through and done with panache, making this ambitious and unique experience a delightful jewel in the SF Fringe Festival's crown."
--Stuart Bousel, SF Theater Pub
"Funny little details kept me belly laughing throughout, and all the members of the troupe bring incredible expressiveness, singing skills, well-timed humor, and obvious camaraderie to make for a captivating, silly, amazing show! See it!"
--Shelly, SF Fringe 2013 Audience Member
"Colorfully worked up (in costuming and properties as well as performances) and no doubt ideal for families or those happy to revel in light insouciance and unyielding silliness."
--Robert Avila, SF Bay Guardian
"The colors, the costumes, the creativity -- it all just made me feel like a kid at the theatre again, as I eagerly awaited the next imaginative way to portray an animal or paint a scene. Terrific! Go see it!"
