Theater Review: "At The Old Place"

Marcel Spears, Heidi Armbruster and Brenna Coates in La Jolla Playhouse’s world-premiere production of "At The Old Place."

An aging magnolia tree overlooking the “old place” seems as weary, deserted, and perhaps even haunted as the 40ish woman who exhaustedly drags a suitcase up the walk and disappears inside in Rachel Bonds’ new play “At The Old Place,” in its world premiere through July 30 at La Jolla Playhouse.

The woman is Angie (Heidi Armbruster), who teaches poetry at a small northeastern college.

Theater Review: “The Ballad of Emmett Till”

Emmett Till was a delightful, hopeful 14-year-old living on the South Side of Chicago in 1955 when he asked his mom if he could go visit relatives in Mississippi.

’Twas down in Mississippi not so long ago

When a young boy from Chicago town stepped through a Southern door

This boy’s dreadful tragedy I can still remember well

The color of his skin was black and his name was Emmett Till. 

-- Bob Dylan, “The Death of Emmett Till”
