very difficult to find parking place off the streets, there is a parking structure just across - $15 for the evening. You might go there early and enjoy your dinner and your evening out!

Park at the mall or NBC, then walk. It's so easy.

I LOVED this production! Very entertaining... loosely structured story follows a group from early childhood in the 80's through young adulthood, using popular 80's music. My friend and I knew almost every song. We laughed, sighed, reminisced......continued

It was great! Went with my boyfriend who is in love with 80's music and he loved it! It was very entertaining! Would see it again! No sense in looking for parking, park across the street in structure - only $10 when you buy a parking voucher...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Lamb’s Players gets it right! Thanks to versatile performers, a crack band, Kerry Meads’ turn-on-a-dime staging, and the writers’ savvy concept. They whip it good!” -_San Diego Union-Tribune (Critic’s Choice) _
“If you’re not of the era, just sit back and enjoy the spectacle! What really matters is personality, and this company has it! - San Diego Theatre Scene (Best Bet)

Description

The musical miXtape takes audiences on a seriously wild musical ride back to that most awesome of decades, featuring the greatest hits of the ’80s, including music by Genesis, Madonna, Sting, U2, Oingo Boingo, The Smiths, Duran Duran, Amy Grant, Huey Lewis and the News, Depeche Mode, the B-52s, the Pointer Sisters and Michael Jackson, among many others. Reagan was in the White House, lycra and legwarmers were the accessories du jour and a “mixtape” of favorite tunes was the ultimate in self-expression.

A lousy economy was about to bounce back like we’d never seen, set to the synthesized beat of ’80s rock. The Cold War was heating up, and with fingers on the nuclear button, the world was sure to end any moment. But for Generation X, life was just beginning. Put on your suspenders, pull out the Members Only jacket, do your hair up with a scrunchy and “cut footloose” for this totally rad musical world premiere.

The show runs 2 hours and 25 minutes with one intermission.
