by BWW News Desk on May 18, 2018 in San Diego

Young power couple Pablo and Tania get their piece of the American dream when they purchase an upscale house in a historic neighborhood. But a disagreement with their next-door neighbors Virginia and Frank over the property line that separates their backyards soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, and gardening. The hedgerow becomes the site of a culture clash and friendly neighbors turn into flower-flinging enemies in the West Coast premiere of Karen Zacarias's uproarious Native Gardens. (more...)

BWW Review: SAN DIEGO OPERA'S ONE AMAZING NIGHT at The Balboa Theater BWW Review: SAN DIEGO OPERA'S ONE AMAZING NIGHT at The Balboa Theater
by Ron Bierman on May 17, 2018 in San Diego

The San Diego Opera's last concert this season was billed as 'One Amazing Night.' The program was originally scheduled to feature soprano Lise Lindstrom and tenor Rene Barbera, but Barbera was released from his commitment when he was offered a Teatro alla Scala debut as Ernesto in a new production of Don Pasquale. He's sung multiple time in San Diego, and will likely return, but the company understood a La Scala debut means too much to an opera singer's career to stand in his way. Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley, who had previously performed with Lindstrom in the San Diego production of Salome, was an effective stand-in. Earlier this season Grimsley played the pirate king here in Pirates of Penzance with surprising comic flair, though best known for dark and heroic roles. (more...)
