Becoming Dr. Ruth Jan 17 - Feb 3, 2019  
The Broadway Theatre Becoming Dr. Ruth
 
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly-arrived in America, Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman's untold story. Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became "Dr. Ruth." Find out more at the Broadway Theater in Vista.
 
   
Pageant Jan 18 - Feb 3, 2019  
Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center Pageant
 
Move over, Miss America -- there's a new Pageant in town! A loving ribbing of national beauty pageants, this clever, tongue-in-cheek show from OB Theatre Company takes its shots not by mocking the wild world of pageants from the outside, but by actually being one. Six contestants will take the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center stage to compete for the title of Miss Glamouresse, named after the show's fictional cosmetics company sponsor. You'll meet Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Texas, Miss Great Plains, Miss Bible Belt and Miss Industrial Northeast as they compete in evening gown, talent, swimsuit and spokes-modeling competitions (the finalists answer "actual" calls from the Glamouresse Beauty Crisis Hotline!). The show's judges, selected from the audience, actually vote and determine the grand prize winner each night, so no two shows are ever the same.
 
   
Smokey Joe's Cafe Jan 25 - Mar 10, 2019  
New Village Arts Theatre Smokey Joe's Cafe
 
"Hound Dog," "Stand by Me," "Love Potion #9" -- the list of rock 'n' roll classics penned by the songwriting duo of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller is jam-packed with legendary hits. A high-energy celebration of this chart-topping body of work from "the Rodgers and Hammerstein of rock 'n' roll," Smokey Joe's Cafe is built around a series of comic and romantic vignettes set in the 1950s, and boasts nearly 40 landmark tunes, like "Yakety Yak," "Jailhouse Rock," "Spanish Harlem," "On Broadway," "Kansas City" and "Fools Fall in Love." This all-singing, all-dancing spectacular holds the record for the longest-running musical revue ever on Broadway, and the show's music won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. Don't miss Smokey Joe's Cafe when it hits New Village Arts Theatre in Carlsbad.
 
   
The Wedding Singer Feb 7 - Mar 3, 2019  
Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center The Wedding Singer
 
It's 1985, and rock star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother's basement, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. The only problem is that Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark - and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the '80s, The Wedding Singer takes you back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just have been the coolest guy in the room. Enjoy this fun musical, based on the hit Adam Sandler film, at San Diego's Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center.

The Big Molinksy Feb 21 - Feb 21, 2019  
David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre The Big Molinksy
 
Nellie McKay exploded onto the music scene in 2004 with her eclectic showstopper, Get Away From Me, "a tour de force from a sly, articulate musician" (The New York Times). With a voice that can be boisterous and bold or soft and breathy, McKay harnesses the agility of a superstar athlete from the piano bench. She's maintained that adventurousness -- starring on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera, opening for Lou Reed at Carnegie Hall, duetting with Eartha Kitt and recording a dazzling tribute to Doris Day. In her solo show The Big Molinksy: Considering Joan Rivers at the David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre in La Jolla, McKay delivers a performance for the ages as the talented and treasured Joan Rivers (playing a few other people in Rivers' life to boot).
