Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 2/28/22 RUN DATES: 2/18/22 - 3/20/22 VENUE:  The Old Globe “El Borracho” means ‘the drunkard.’ And the moment you enter The Old Globe’s in-the-round White Theatre, you get the picture.

She’s a tightly-wrapped, driven Type A++ executive whose anger and disgust with others (especially her invariably “incompetent” interns) is palpable, capricious and destructive.. Her brother is … well, different. Taciturn, solitary, reclusive. When he talks, he says strange things. Her husband, a Read More →

When Frank Abagnale, Jr. published his memoir in 1980, he told a pretty wild story. From age 16-20 (1964-1968), after his parents divorced, and he ran away from his New York home, he went on a massive crime-spree, forging checks and making a ton of money posing as a doctor, a lawyer (serving as assistant state Attorney General in Read More →
