Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 8/20/22 RUN DATES: 8/17/22 - 9/3/22 VENUE:  Moonlight Stage Productions Three distinct communities, living in their own separate bubbles: The upper-crust Whites. The middle-class and underprivileged Blacks. The impoverished immigrants. Inevitably, they are forced to interact — for good or for ill. That’s the story of “Ragtime,” a brilliant historical novel by E.L. Doctorow, 1975; a misguided, miscast movie (1981); and a magnificent musical (1996). It’s also the story of America. Though the action is set in New Read More →

It’s always felicitous when a play with an outdoor setting is performed outdoors (another Shakespearean forest is currently being featured at The Old Globe for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”).

Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 8/2/22 RUN DATES: 7/13/22 - 9/18/22 VENUE:  Cygnet Theatre The brilliant, searing, 8-time Tony Award-winning Kander and Ebb musical, “Cabaret” (with book by Joe Masteroff) is set in a decadent, declining Berlin, 1931, just as the Nazis are seizing power and taking control.

Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 7/29/22 RUN DATES: 7/20/22 - 8/28/22 VENUE:  North Coast Repertory Theatre What makes a successful Sherlock Holmes mystery? One (or multiple) crimes, often murder. Numerous, sometimes odious. suspects. Unexpected complications, twists and turns, blind alleys and red herrings. And of course, The Man himself (as created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in four novels and 56 short stories, published from 1887-1927): fiercely intelligent, with extraordinary powers of observation, forensic figuring and deductive reasoning. Arrogant and supercilious. Read More →
