Theater Review: “What You Are”

“What You Are” plays through June 30, 2019 at The Old Globe’s Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.

Work is how most of us verify that we are somebody. That is true of all workers, but especially of white men with less than a college education.

Theater Review: “Little Shop of Horrors”

“Little Shop of Horrors” plays through August 4, 2019 at New Village Arts, 2787 State Street, Carlsbad.

Watch out. That man-(and woman)-eating plant with the enormous red mouth and insatiable appetite is back to menace the curious and the unwary.

Yes, it’s “Little Shop of Horrors,” directed by AJ Knox and playing through Aug. 4 at Carlsbad’s New Village Arts.

In what is becoming a viral internet joke, the Boston men behind a proposed straight pride parade have adopted Brad Pitt as their mascot willy-nilly.

Theater Review: “M. Butterfly”

Theater Review: “M. Butterfly."

Truth is stranger than fiction, and love can be even weirder than that, as David Henry Hwang shows us in his tale of seduction, obsession and espionage “M. Butterfly,” playing through June 8 at South Coast Repertory.

Theater Review: “The Old Man and the Old Moon”

Theater Review: “The Old Man and the Old Moon."

Some plays lay it all out for you. Others, like PigPen Theatre Company’s “The Old Man and the Old Moon” not only use imagination, but require it of theater company, performers and audience.

So when you go to Coronado Playhouse’s lovely production, sit back, relax and prepare to accept everything you see as true or demonstrating a truth.

Theater Review: “Pride and Prejudice”

“Pride and Prejudice” plays through June 16, 2019 at Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town.

Let’s face it, Jane Austen is an easy and obvious target for re-interpretation and comedy, even satire. Austen practically wrote the bible on late 18th- century English society, and was forward-looking enough to write about strong female characters with definite opinions they were not afraid to express. And she didn’t shy away from humor.
