FilmOut hit "Boy Meets Girl" returns to San Diego

(Editor's note: SDGLN is rerunning its Q&A interview with Eric Schaeffer, writer-director of "Boy Meets Girl," published on May 19, 2014, prior to the 16th annual FilmOut San Diego LGBT Film Festival. Minor editing has deleted outdated information without changing the context. The opening night movie was a huge hit, and the soldout audience peppered Schaeffer and the cast with excellent questions at the Q&A session afterward.

THEATER REVIEW: “Old Jews Telling Jokes”

The news lately has been alternately scary, disgusting and head-shakingly nutty. At times like this, it’s good to forget all that and kick back with a quintet of “Old Jews Telling Jokes,” onstage through May 25 at the Lyceum Theatre.

It’s Borscht Belt night in this 90-minute jokefest touching on birth, courtship, marriage, death and those little annoyances in between (like doctors and rabbis).

“Old Jews Telling Jokes” is the brainchild of Daniel Okrent and Peter Gethers, who were inspired by the series of jokes on the website of the same name.

THEATER REVIEW: “To Kill A Mockingbird”

Harper Lee tells us it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird because they cause no harm, but only give pleasure with their song.

Lee’s 1960 classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” tells the story of two metaphorical mockingbirds harmed by a society rife with prejudice and injustice, wrapped in a story of growing up in the Depression-era South, seen through the eyes of six-year-old Jean Louise “Scout” Finch (Katelyn Katz) and narrated by the grown-up Jean Louise (Kristianne Kurner).
