Theater Review: “Church”

“Church” plays through April 20, 2019, at Diversionary’s Black Box, 4545 Park Boulevard in University Heights.

Religion is a hot-button issue for many, myself included. I grew up in a fundamentalist church of the sort Rev. José (Salomon Maya) would approve.

So when Rev. Jose bellowed from the back of the room “You are a spiritual black hole!,” it was familiar, but I was still ready to bolt.

"The Fantasticks" is coming to Point Loma Playhouse

Shows on May 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, 31 June 1, 2: Friday & Saturday 8:00 pm/Sunday 2:30 pm

"Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers.

Ryan O’Connell's "Special" is a canny look at being gay and living with cerebral palsy.

The genius of the new Netflix show called “Special” is not in its situational comedy type setup about a gay writer with cerebral palsy (CP), but with its stars. It’s cast is so rich with talent it should be patented.

Theater Review: “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch”

“Mr. & Mrs. Fitch” plays through April 14, 2019 at Moxie Theatre, 6663 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego.

“Gossip is just news that’s interesting,” says Mrs. Fitch (Sandy Campbell), one half of a team of gossip columnists in Douglas Carter Beane’s amusingly snarky 1998 two-hander “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch.”

She and husband Mr. Fitch (Andrew Oswald) have been writing a column for some years, getting invited to all the posh parties where they can mine a gossipy item or two.
