Fabhats are crowning achievements for Lorena Levinson

If you haven’t seen Lorena Levinson’s spectacular captain's hats around San Diego then maybe it’s time you discovered a little bit more about them because they are now one of the hottest trends in Hillcrest. 

Theater Review: “Jersey Boys”

“Jersey Boys” plays through May 14, 2017: Thursday at 7:30 pm; Friday at 8 pm; Saturday at 2 and 8 pm; Sunday at 1 and 6 pm

“A good musical can make you thank God for the day you were born.”

Rick Elice said that, and he’s partly responsible for one of those musicals. He’s  the co-writer of the book for the multiple Tony-winning “Jersey Boys” that has just returned home for a short run through Sunday at San Diego Civic Theatre.

Theater Review: "The Music Man"

The cast of "The Music Man" at the Welk Resort, Escondido.

I’ll grant that “Oklahoma!” is a pretty good opening song for a musical, but for my money “Rock Island” from “The Music Man” may be the best opener ever written – and also has best last line. 

Theater Review: “Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”

Plays Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm; Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm

Memory can be a bitch. Sometimes self-deception makes life easier to take. Just ask any member of the Disciples of James Dean fan club in fictional McCarthy, Texas.

It’s 1975, and the Disciples (who still haven’t forgotten when “Giant” was filmed in neighboring Marfa) are preparing for a meeting to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Dean’s sudden and violent demise in a car crash. 

Theater Review: "Heathers: The Musical"

Veronica soon realizes that being in favor with the Heathers involves sacrifices to her integrity, just as being on the outs will cost her socially.

I don’t remember high school especially fondly, but not in my wildest nightmares was it anything like the depiction of Westerberg High School in “Heathers: The Musical.”

This isn’t your sweet little show about those good ol’ high school days.
