Even if you've never heard of Irving Berlin, you've heard his songs: "God Bless America," "White Christmas," "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Puttin' on the Ritz," "There's No Business Like Show Business" -- the list goes on and on. Now you have a unique opportunity to experience this iconic composer through the performance of immensely talented actor, pianist and playwright Hershey Felder. Felder has previously performed as George Gershwin, Beethoven and Chopin, but now he's taking on the role of one of America's most prolific composers, Berlin. In this performance featuring selections from Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin, you'll hear Berlin's classic songs performed by Felder as well as stories about Berlin's life and how he created so many pieces of music we still love to listen to today. Take advantage of this one-night only performance at the San Diego Repertory Theatre before Felder officially premieres the show in Los Angeles. Learn More

Some great belly laughs. Do not need to know much Shakespeare to be in on the joke, but it helps. Great slapstick; wish they diid more of the clown parts since all three are naturals. Couldn't hurt to have a drink with dinner first!

The play that launched a thousand Reductions!
All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy running 10 years in the West End at the Criterion Theatre – and is now being presented for the first time by the RSC in San Diego! Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. Warning! This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness. The RSC cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!
