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

*The Tragedy of the Commons *- (Previews January 20th – January 23th)

by Stephen Metcalfe

Directed by Sean Murray

World Premiere! Dakin Adams, a retired school teacher, spends his days writing and sending his thoughts – his blogs – out in the void that is the internet. His wife, Macy, walks the dogs and gardens. It would seem the only thing they have in common anymore is their home, their memories and their love of “the view” – the Pacific Ocean as seen from the back deck of the house. But now their neighbor is selling and the new owner is coming in to tear down and rebuild – build “up” – and the view – and the fragile relationship of two people – is in ever increasing jeopardy. 

Cabaret – (Previews March 17th – March 20th)

Music by John Kander 

Lyrics by Fred Ebb 

Book by Joe Masteroff 

Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood 

Directed by Sean Murray

Cabaret depicts the interlocking stories of a cabaret singer, an American writer and the denizens of Berlin, all caught up in the swirling maelstrom of a changing society. In the seamy, sleazy Kit Kat Klub, on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power, almost anything – including love – is possible. This dark, daring and provocative musical was winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Composer and Lyricist. Welcome to the Cabaret

Our Town – (Previews June 9th – June 12th)

by Thornton Wilder

Directed by Sean Murray

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Thornton Wilder’s _Our Town _follows the courtship and marriage of George and Emily, and in following the two, reveals the hidden mystery behind the everyday. Wilder’s portrait of life, love and death is set in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire – a fictional New England town at the start of the 20th century. With a penetrating wisdom about living in community, this play is an enduring American treasure and one of the greatest plays of world theatre.
