Photo Flash: West Coast Premiere of HURRICANE DIANE at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents the west coast premiere of Hurricane Diane by Madeleine George, directed by James Vásquez.

Check out photos below!

This unconventional new comedy from Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George sees the Greek god Dionysus return to the modern world disguised as the butch gardener Diane, whose secret mission is to seduce mortal followers and restore the earth to its natural state. Where better to begin than with four real housewives from New Jersey? The New York Times cheered Hurricane Diane as an "astonishing new play," and New York magazine hailed it as "hilarious and full of keen observation and profound human affection."

The show runs from February 8 - March 8, 2020



Review: Tarmo Peltokoski Makes His U.S. Debut with The San Diego Symphony Orchestra at the Photo
What did our critic think of TARMO PELTOKOSKI As He MAKES HIS U.S. DEBUT WITH THE SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA at Southwestern Colleges Performing Arts Center? We seem to be going through an unprecedented flood of young conducting talent. Finnland's Tarmo Peltokoski is an example. At 22 his recent-college-grad looks make it difficult to believe that he is the conductor or principal guest conductor of four European symphony orchestras. I attended the second of back-to-back performances in his U.S. debut with the San Diego Symphony and am now convinced that much of the hype is warranted.
