American Hero  
New Village Arts Theatre American Hero
Bess Wohl's provocative new play American Hero takes place at a newly-franchised sub shop at the local mall. There, three up-and-coming "sandwich artists" -- a teenager, a single mom and a downsized corporate banker -- are perfecting the mustard-to-cheese ratio according to the company manual. But when their shot at the American dream is interrupted by a series of peculiar events, they become unlikely allies in a post-recession world. Even as corporate America gives up on them, they band together to prove that heroes aren't born, they're made ... fresh to order on your choice of bread. Hailed as a "brilliant comedy with cutting social satire" (Variety), this super-sized dark comedy about life, liberty and the pursuit of sandwiches now comes to San Diego's New Village Arts Theatre.

Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center Avenue Q
The massively popular adult puppet musical Avenue Q comes to the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego. Full of humor and hummable tunes, Avenue Q is a hilarious look at life in New York, featuring a fantastic mixed cast of people and puppets. In its Broadway debut, Avenue Q scored the "Triple Crown" of Tony wins, grabbing honors for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. The lovable cast of characters, both flesh and felt, includes recent college grad Princeton, who moves to Avenue Q full of hope for the future, Kate (the girl-monster next door), and the colorful collection of neighbors who help Princeton discover his true purpose in life. While the show draws inspiration from a certain beloved children's show, you'll definitely want to leave the kiddos at home for this one -- these puppets have quite the potty mouths on them, and there's even some "full puppet nudity" involved.

Discovered in a West Virginia cave, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the local veterinarian, where he's accepted as a member of the family and taught how to act like a "normal" boy. But as the town's cows begin to fall victim to a mysterious plague, mayhem ensues. With its clever production numbers, infectious pop-rock score, surprising twists and a message about acceptance, this frightfully funny spoof is a classic love story with a wicked bite that's part comic book, part horror flick -- and all fun. Catch this production of Bat Boy: The Musical at the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego.

Father Comes Home From the Wars  
Horton Grand Theatre Father Comes Home From the Wars
The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history has epics of its own. Father Comes Home From the Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) at San Diego's Horton Grand Theatre follows the slave, Hero, who agrees to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for his freedom, traveling from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From the Wars trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.



The Firebird  
Spreckels Theatre The Firebird
Every great artist has a breakthrough piece. For Igor Stravinsky, it was The Firebird, a 1910 ballet inspired by a series of beloved Russian fairy tales. Set to Stravinsky's captivating score, this classic ballet tells the story of Ivan, who finds himself lost in a dark, dangerous place filled with desperate characters, where a cruel boss rules by fear and intimidation. It is the beautiful, mythical Firebird who first charms and eludes Ivan -- and ultimately saves him. Featuring the work of resident choreographer Elizabeth Wistrich, City Ballet of San Diego presents their take on this masterwork as part of an eclectic program at Spreckels Theatre, which also features George Balanchine's Serenade, the San Diego premiere of Ash, and Samuel Barber Adagio, an award-winning pas de deux crafted by Wistrich in 1990.
