Theater Review: "Cabaret"

Randy Harrison as the Master of Ceremonies in "Cabaret," stopping in San Diego on its national Broadway tour.

"Leave your troubles outside,” says the Emcee (Randy Harrison). “We have no troubles here.”

If only.

It’s 1929 in Berlin, a chaotic, decadent time when alcohol, drugs and sex may not have been free but were certainly easy to come by.

In the seedy Kit Kat Klub, you could watch girls dance or perhaps (for a price) get more familiar with them. 

Theater Review: "Love’s Labor’s Lost"

Amy Blackman as Maria, Pascale Armand as Rosaline, Kevin Cahoon as Boyet, Kristen Connolly as Princess of France, and Talley Beth Gale as Katherine in William Shakespeare's "Love's Labor's Lost."

Ah, what could be better on a warm summer night than romance and Shakespearean silliness?

Okay, it wasn’t that warm, but the Old Globe Shakespeare Festival offers a charming version of “Love’s Labor’s Lost” through Sept. 18 at the Lloyd Davies Festival Theatre.

Life is a 'Cabaret' for actress Margaret Dudasik

Margaret Dudasik plays "Texas" in Sam Mendes' "Cabaret" at the Civic Theatre through Aug. 28.

Margaret Dudasik may be the hardest working woman touring on stage at the moment. Well, her and the other members of Sam Mendes’ “Cabaret” which is currently in San Diego until August 28.

Dudasik plays “Texas” one of the girls who performs alongside Sally Bowles at the Kit Kat Club and her duties require more than just being a chorus girl.

Theater Review: “Gutenberg! The Musical!”

Tom Zohar and Anthony Methvin in “Gutenberg! The Musical!”

“Stop the press!” has acquired a new meaning in “Gutenberg! The Musical.”

Gutenberg? The printing press guy? 

Yep, that one.

But this play isn’t really about Gutenberg, at least not in a biographical sense.

Theater Review: "Gypsy"

Allison Spratt Pearce and Linda Libby in "Gypsy."

I had never seen the musical “Gypsy” in any way, shape or form, but I did know that it was about a rather sad and controlling stage mother who takes her troupe of kids across the United States in the age of Vaudeville in search of fame and fortune before it disappeared forever.

Theater Review: "Titanic"

Steven Glaudinim Norman Large and Robert J Townsend in Titanic

The sinking of the “unsinkable” Titanic in 1912 is an event almost too big and awful to wrap your mind around, let alone to consider depicting it onstage in a musical.

Theater Review: “Oklahoma!”

Anything but plain, "Oklahoma!" sweeps through the New Village Arts Theatre

Cowboys and farmers, the surrey with the fringe on top and that wind that comes whipping down the plain?

Yep, it’s “Oklahoma!” back for another visit. This time it’s in Carlsbad, where it plays through Sept. 25, at New Village Arts.
