Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 4/20/2014 RED
San Diego Repertory Theatre
3/29-4/27/2014
John Logan's scripts for "The Gladiator" and "The Aviator" were both nominated for Academy Awards. He won a Golden Globe with Tim Burton for his film version of the musical Sweeny Todd. He co-wrote the recent James Bond film "Skyfall" and is slated to write the next two Bond films. Inspired by the work of legendary artist Mark Rothko, Logan has returned to his first love - playwriting - and the result is triumphant. In 2010, RED won six Tony Awards®, including Best Play! This larger-than-life portrait of an angry and brilliant artistic mind is a fearless piece of work that dares to reveal the mysteries of the creative process. Logan invites you to feel the shape, texture, and emotional color of Mark Rothko's demons and muses. The story is set in 1958 at a critical point in the career of the superstar abstract expressionist painter. Rothko has been challenged to create a definitive work of art for the exclusive Four Seasons restaurant. His problem: the threatening presence of a neophyte assistant, a voice of a new generation of artists that question Rothko's theories and label him a sell-out. Surrounded by massive black and red canvases that pulsate with color, the result is an exhilarating and combative battle between student and master in search of the very highest art possible.

Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 4/20/2014 TIME AND THE CONWAYS
The Old Globe
3/29-5/4/2014
Yorkshire, 1919: The Great War is over and it's a new Golden Age. The six Conway siblings gather for a birthday celebration filled with laughter and hope, and they dream of the shining futures awaiting them. Same house, same room, 1937: the world is a darker place and things haven't quite panned out. Perhaps 1919 wasn't as bright as it seemed? English stage giant J.B. Priestley (An Inspector Calls) bends time and space in a powerful family drama that is a theatrical exploration of how past, present and future are finally all one.

They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft.

Sheryl & Harvey White Theatre
4/12-5/11/2014
After serving in Iraq, wounded soldier Elliot Ortiz returns home to reconnect with his family and start a new life. At the same time, four lonely souls with wounds of a different sort reach out across the internet to an online support group in search of healing connections of their own. Soon the real world and the virtual one come together in ways neither could ever have foreseen. The Hartford Courant proclaimed Water by the Spoonful "a very funny, warm and, yes, uplifting, play with characters that are vivid, vital and who stay with you long after the play is over."

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts
4/18-5/11/2014
Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theatre phenomenon, CATS opened at London's New London Theatre on May 11, 1981 and ran for a record-setting 21 years. CATS' London success was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran at the Winter Garden Theatre for just over 18 years.
