Dorothy Meets Alice or the Wizard of Wonderland

  • Looking Glass Theatre

ABOUT THE SHOW

It’s bedtime, and our hero, Judson, has a serious dilemma. His book report, and required accompanying costume, are due tomorrow and he hasn’t completely read any of the assigned books, yet. Luckily for Judson, he meets Dorothy and Alice, and an assortment of characters, in the Tulgey Woods. Because he didn’t finish either tale, Judson isn’t sure which companions go with which heroine. Alas, the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen, find and threaten them. Judson realizes he and his friends are only safe in the zone between the Oz and Wonderland borders. However, Alice explains that they can’t stay put either, as there are other dangers in the Tulgey Woods, like the Jabberwocky!  After the mixed up characters pair up to sneak into the two magical realms, a battle with the Jabberwocky, and some surprising childhood bonds are discovered, everyone learns some important lessons. But, can Dorothy, Alice, and their companions help Judson solve his problem before morning? Catch one of Looking Glass Theatre’s performances of “Dorothy Meets Alice” for the answer.

In the idealized years of the 1950s, the Pazinski family has a lot going on. Twelve-year-old Rudy, a smart kid who’s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church, goes up against the ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and announces that instead of being confirmed he’d rather shop around for a more “fun” religion! All hell breaks loose in this hilarious look at family, growing up and God. Note: Some mild adult language.

Grease the Musical

  • Star Repertory Theatre

ABOUT THE SHOW

Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "It's Raining on Prom Night", "Alone at the Drive-In Movie", "Hopelessly Devoted To You", "Sandy", "Grease", and "You're The One That I Want" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world's most popular musicals.

Awake and Sing

  • New Village Arts

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Written by Clifford Odets | Directed by Kristianne Kurner

Generally considered Clifford Odets' finest play, AWAKE AND SING! was originally performed by the notable Group Theater on Broadway in 1935. By turns starkly dramatic and vividly comic, it is the story of the Bergers, a lower-middle-class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. Odets, who described his play as "a struggle for life amid petty conditions," captures the frenetic, pressured existence in this crowded dwelling with robust authenticity.

The Last Cyclist

  • San Diego Mesa College

ABOUT THE SHOW

The Last Cyclist tells of the inmates in an insane asylum who take over the world. Their dictatorial leader, Ma’am, once had a psychiatrist who stuck needles in her arms. This psychiatrist rode a bicycle, so the former inmates figure that if they can only get rid of all the cyclists in the world, their troubles will be over.
Based on a cabaret written in the Terezin Ghetto in 1944 by Karel Svenk
Reconstructed and re-imagined by Naomi Patz
Directed by Kris Clark
There was an old joke among the Jews living in Europe between the two world wars: First man: The Jews and the cyclist are responsible for all of the problems of the world. Second man: Why the cyclists?
Third man: Why the Jews?

In a world where building a wall and refusing entry to an entire population are being touted as solutions to all of our problems, shouldn't we question the sanity of unfettered prejudice and oppression?

ABOUT THE SHOW

It's nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury train traveling from Chicago to New York City. Luck, love and mischief collide when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch, and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?

Urinetown the Musical

  • OB Playhouse

ABOUT THE SHOW

Urinetown the Musical is the Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the "comedic romp" into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

ABOUT THE SHOW

It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.

The Kron Repertory : 2.5 Minute Ride and Well

  • Diversionary Theatre

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Diversionary celebrates the storytelling genius of Lisa Kron by bringing two of her contemporary classics together in repertory for the first time ever! Both autobiographical plays deftly explore Kron’s hilarious and poignant relationship with two of the most perplexing people in her life: Her Parents.

2.5 Minute Ride : Returning to San Diego for the first time since its celebrated World Premiere, this inventive solo show is a roller coaster adventure through the playwright’s family album, focusing on her relationship with her Father, a Holocaust survivor. Swirling through three disparate yet strikingly resonant experiences of a trip to Auschwitz, a Brooklyn wedding and an annual outing to an Ohio Amusement Park, a disarming story emerges about the ties that bind a family and a compelling portrait of a honorable man.

WELL: This pioneering Broadway comedy begins as a reverent study of the playwright’s chronically ill Mom and her extraordinary ability to heal a racially divided community despite her inability to make herself well. But when the playwright’s carefully crafted characters start having opinions of their own, theatrical hell breaks loose threatening to unravel the entire story. This uproariously funny and magical memoir reveals how we heal ourselves is not always the best medicine for those we love.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They've never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Cringle. She tells them she's dating a Jewish doctor, and they insist on meeting him. So she hires a male escort named Bob Schroeder to impersonate the perfect Dr. Steinberg at a family dinner. But Bob isn’t actually Jewish, and Sarah is sure her plan is undone. Hilarity ensues when Bob not only fools Sarah’s family, but wins their hearts, and maybe Sarah’s, too. The Chicago Tribune described this hometown hit from James Sherman as “a light, sweet romantic comedy” and a definite crowd-pleaser.
