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: “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure”

The game’s afoot one last time at Coronado Playhouse, as everybody’s favorite sleuth tries to solve a blackmail case before bidding farewell to his long and storied career.

“Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure,” Steven Dietz’s mashup of two Holmes stories (“A Scandal In Bohemia” and “The Final Problem”) gets a lively production through May 18, directed by Nick Reeves. The play won the 2007 Edgar Award for the best play in the mystery genre.

Have a safe and happy Easter!

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).

THEATER REVIEW: “Tricks,” a coming-out story

In an exquisitely awkward first scene, Hank (Bryant Hernandez) cruises park hustler Daryl (Jacob Narcy) for the umpteenth time, finally managing to summon the courage to share the park bench.

A shared sandwich later, Hank is willing to endanger an 11-year marriage for the chance to “be held by another man.”

THEATER REVIEW: “Red” at San Diego Rep | VIDEO

He’s imperious, irascible, difficult ... and brilliant.

He’s 20th-century abstractionist painter Mark Rothko (John Vickery), and starts right in bullying his new assistant Ken (Jason Maddy), a fledgling artist himself.

After a long recitation of his expectations (Ken will largely be a go-fer) comes this admonition: “I am not your rabbi, I am not your father, I am not your shrink, I am not your friend, I am not your teacher. I am your employer. You understand?”
