“A Jewel in the Crown City” plays through February 24, 2019, at Lamb’s Players Theatre, 1142 Orange Avenue, Coronado.

It looks like a party onstage – and it is. Lamb’s Players Theatre celebrates 25 years in Coronado with a tasty smorgasbord of famous hits from past shows in “A Jewel in the Crown City.” The party continues (and has been extended) through Feb. 24 at the theater.

Theater Review: “Becoming Dr. Ruth”

“Becoming Dr. Ruth” plays through February 3, 2019 at the Broadway Theater, 340 East Broadway in Vista.

Say “Dr. Ruth” and anybody who was listening to the radio or watching TV in the 1980s will know exactly whom you’re talking about.

She’s Dr. Ruth Westheimer, pint-sized sex therapist extraordinaire, whose face, accent and sense of humor were daily fixtures on TV and radio for years.
