Super Bowl 2016 at Flicks.

Super Bowl weekend is here!

This means Super Bowl parties, and the local gay clubs will have them aplenty this Sunday.

Here’s a roundup of some of the main places in Hillcrest you can go to hang out with friends and fellow fans, and catch the big game:

Theater Review: "Good People"

Heidi Bridges (Margie), Susan Clausen (Jean), Kathi Copeland (Dottie)

Remember that old shibboleth that anybody can succeed if they work hard enough? Tell that to Margaret (Heidi Bridges). Margie is about 50, undereducated and a cashier at the Dollar Store in the Southie projects of Boston, and she’s about to get fired for excessive tardiness.

Hilarious Vickie Shaw coming to San Diego Feb. 2

Audiences always come back for more after seeing comedian Vickie Shaw perform.

Vickie Shaw has deemed herself “The funniest Comedian ever!” And if you've seen her stand-up act you will understand why.

She's coming  to Martinis Above Fourth on Thursday February 2, for her “Platinum is the New Blonde” tour, and it's going to be a night of rip-roaring comedy. 

Theater Review: "Altar Boyz"

"Altar Boyz," now at the Coronado Playhouse

Coronado Playhouse is rocking through Feb. 19 with the sounds of a (satirical) Christian boy band whose goals are to save souls and lift spirits. “We’re gonna alter your mind,” they sing, “We think that church is too refined.”

Theater Review: "Bad Jews"

“Bad Jews” plays through February 12, 2017 at Cygnet Theatre.

Let’s face it, she’s a pain the ass. 

I’m talking about Vassar student Daphna (aka Diana) Feygenbaum (Danielle Frimer), Jew extraordinaire, in town for a family funeral in Joshua Harmon’s “Bad Jews.”

We meet her in the upper-80s Manhattan apartment of cousins Liam (Josh Odsess-Rubin) and Jonah (Tom Zohar), whose grandfather’s funeral was yesterday. Jonah was there.

Theater Review: “Our Great Tchaikovsky”

Wednesday at 7 pm; Thursday and Friday at 8 pm; Saturday at 2 and 8 pm.; Sunday at 2 and 7 pm.

Tchaikovsky started piano lessons at five, but five years after that his parents (unconvinced that music could be a viable career) sent him off to St. Petersburg to an academy that would train him for life as a civil servant.

Tony-Award winning play "Mothers and Sons" debuts in San Diego

McNally also wrote Andre’s Mother, the first part of this series in which the death of a son from AIDS sends his mother into emotional turmoil.
