Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 8/03/2014 INTO THE WOODS
The Old Globe
7/12-8/10/2014
One of the greatest musicals of all time returns in triumph to its birthplace, nearly three decades after its world premiere at The Old Globe, in an inventive new production from Fiasco Theater that originated at McCarter Theatre Center and had The New York Times cheering, "I fell head over heels! Fun, poignant, and truly enchanting." Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning masterpiece weaves together beloved fairy tales, then ventures into the unknown territory of life after "happily ever after." Fiasco Theater, critically acclaimed for their reinventions of the classics, conjures a mythical world of theatrical invention with 10 actors and a handful of musical instruments. An ordinary rope becomes Jack's famous beanstalk, a ladder becomes Rapunzel's enchanted tower, and the power of transformation creates a beguiling theatre of the imagination!

Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 8/03/2014 SWAN LAKE
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts
8/10-8/10/2014
When it premiered at Sadler's Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne's triumphant re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Now you can watch this modern day classic on our giant movie screen. An iconic production, perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, was filmed at Sadler's Wells, London in 2011. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity. With more than 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys and an Olivier, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the stage, becoming the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway.

Now Playing Onstage in San Diego - Week of 8/03/2014 NO EXIT
Long Beach Playhouse
7/26-8/23/2014
Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell. The windows are bricked up; there are no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and there is no exit. The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.
