There are variety of restaurants in walking distance from the theatre. That night we chose Miguel's Cocina, 2444 San Diego Ave. We love the food and their fresh chips and homemade white queso dip is to die for. The theatre bar offers beer, wine, soda, snacks, and some adult mixed drinks.

Description

A Behanding in Spokane*

Jan 19th through Feb 19th*

Directed by Lisa Berger

A hilarious black comedy from award-winning Irish playwright, Martin McDonagh. This southern California premiere which marks McDonagh’s first American-set play. The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand, two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks, and an overly curious hotel clerk, and the rest is up for grabs.

Advisories: Violence, strong language.

Parade*

Mar 8th through Apr 22nd*

Directed by Sean Murray

Hauntingly beautiful music permeates the Tony Award-winning score as Parade tells the true story of Jewish factory manager Leo Frank, accused and convicted in 1913 of murdering thirteen-year-old, Mary Phagan in Atlanta, Georgia. Set against the backdrop of his controversial trial and conviction, Parade explores the deep love that grows between Leo and his wife Lucille as they work together to fight for his freedom.

Directed by Sean Murray

“I made myself platinum, but I was born a dirty blonde” – Mae West

Dirty Blonde follows Jo, an aspiring actress, who admires Mae West for her determination to beat the odds. On her annual pilgrimage to West’s gravesite, Jo bumps into Charlie, a film librarian and Mae West devotee who met his aging idol at her Hollywood apartment as a teenager. These two shy fans end up finding their own self-confidence and even romance in their shared love of this entertainment icon.
