Theater Review: “Nathan Gunn Flying Solo”

“Nathan Gunn Flying Solo” plays through June 10, 2018, at San Diego Repertory Theatre Lyceum Stage, 79 Horton Plaza, Downtown.

Don’t go to see baritone Nathan Gunn just because he’s a “barihunk” (or, as he prefers, “hunkiton”), though let’s face it: it’s great to listen to somebody who’s also easy on the eyes.

See “Nathan Gunn Flying Solo” at San Diego Repertory Theatre because he will thrill you with what is probably the best baritone voice singing today.

Playwright Stephanie Alison Walker’s “The Madres” memorializes the public protests of Argentinian women against the repressive (and murderous) rightwing junta that deposed Isabel Perón in 1976, and promptly proceeded to eliminate opposition by means of arrests, imprisonment, torture and murder.
