San Diego is in love with "Carmen"

"Carmen" is now showing through April 7 at 7 pm Tuesday and Friday and 2 pm on Sunday.

From the acting to the choreography to the music and singing, San Diego has fallen in love with "Carmen," this its 10th production since the San Diego Opera's opening over half a century ago. 

Theater Review: “Angels in America, Pt 2: Perestroika”

“Angels in America” plays in rotating repertory through April 20, 2019 at Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park

Tony Kushner’s epic two-part play “Angels in America” continued at Cygnet Theatre last week when part 2 – “Perestroika” – opened. Both parts will now play in repertory through the end of the run on April 20.

I’m not kidding when I call them epic. Seeing them both is about a seven-hour commitment. I tell you this by way of noting that you can see them both in one day if you like.

Theater Review: “Cabaret"

“Cabaret” plays through April 29, 2019 at Coronado Playhouse, 1835 Strand Way, Coronado.

“Cabaret.” The title alone sounds like a party, and Coronado Playhouse’s configuration with cabaret seating enforces that impression. So does the pre-show action, with scantily-clad dancers roaming the house.

Hunter Brown’s excellent Emcee (Hunter Brown), promises us that everything here is beautiful and we are not to worry about anything.

Theater Review: “Bullshot Crummond”

“Bullshot Crummond” plays through April 20, 2019 at OnStage Playhouse, 291 Third Avenue (near F Street), Chula Vista.

You might suspect you’re in trouble when a glance at the program reveals no less than five playwrights. And as the show progresses, you’ll note that the script sounds like it was pasted together from jokes rejected by better writers.

Cameron Hawthorn is an all-out country star

Cameron Hawthorn is out in the country and a long way from home.

Cameron Hawthorn is getting his first taste of real fame. Not too long ago he released the video for his song "Dancing in the Living Room" that made headlines because it was also his national coming out story. So how does a gay man from Kansas who loves country music relocate to the west coast and take his place at the table?

Theater Review: “Chaps!”

“Chaps!” plays through April 20, 2019 at Lamb’s Players Theatre, 1142 Orange Avenue, Coronado.

Not every play has something serious to say. Lamb’s Players Theatre’s latest effort “Chaps!” – a goofy, cornball show full of fake British cowboys trying to sound like authentic American cowpunchers -- is an example.

This is a radio sendup of the sort of show Bob Hope did for years when he (and others) traveled around during World War II entertaining troops under USO auspices.\

Pride Journey: Provincetown/Cape Cod

Cape Cod is known for attracting throngs of LGBTQ beach and party goers to its northmost tip, Provincetown. Having never been to P-Town, the locals found it surprising that I would visit during the winter when the town's population is a fraction of what it is during the summer.

Theater Review: “Angels in America”

“Angels in America” plays in rotating repertory through April 20, 2019 at Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park

Is there anything left unsaid about Tony Kushner’s epic 1993 diptych “Angels in America,” a chronicle of the AIDS epidemic, the Reagan years, personal anguish and environmental degradation set in 1980s America?
