A Chorus Line  
Welk Resort Theatre San Diego A Chorus Line
 
A Chorus Line is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition.

Memorable musical numbers include "What I Did for Love," "One," "I Can Do That," "At the Ballet," "The Music and the Mirror," and "I Hope I Get It." A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A Chorus Line was instantly recognized as a classic.
   
Fun Home  
Patio Playhouse Fun Home
 
Winner of 5 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the brilliant but volatile man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. A refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Fun Home has some adult language and themes. We recommend that parents research the play before deciding if their children should see it.
   
Going to a Place Where You Already Are  
OnStage Playhouse Going to a Place Where You Already Are
 
Is there a heaven? Joe says no; it's all a bunch of hokum. His wife, Roberta, has always claimed to agree. But lately she's beginning to wonder, especially when they find themselves in church a lot, having reached the age when funerals are more frequent than weddings. Their granddaughter, Ellie, doesn't have time in her own busy life to ponder the after-life. But when mortality confronts them, her grandmother's claim to have gone to heaven and back doesn't sound so crazy after all. With thoughtful storytelling and quiet wit, Brunstetter looks at beginnings, endings - and an enigmatic angel.
   
The Great Leap  
Old Town Theatre The Great Leap
 
When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, the game is a chance to claim personal victories on and off the court. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as a pivotal moment in history collides with the action in the arena. Sharp-witted and weighty, this perceptive new play explores the cultural and political risks of raising your voice and standing your ground. "An exhilarating, deeply satisfying piece of work," - New York Magazine. "The play's relevance could not be more immediate," - Chicago Sun-Times. "Even those who don't care for basketball or international affairs will care about these characters," - Pasadena Star-News.

Murder for Two  
New Village Arts Theatre Murder for Two
 
Two actors. One piano. Thirteen suspects. Murder for Two is the perfect blend of music, mayhem, and murder! In this hilarious 90-minute show, 2 performers play 13 roles-not to mention the piano-in a witty and winking homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries. Officer Marcus Moscowicz is a small-town policeman with dreams of becoming a full-fledged detective. One fateful night, at a surprise birthday party for the Great American Murder novelist Arthur Whitney, he is killed... fatally. With the nearest detective an hour away, Marcus jumps at the chance to prove he knows the most about crime scene protocol (with the help of his silent partner, Lou), but whodunnit? Did Dahlia Whitney, Arthur's scene-stealing wife, give him a big finish? Is Barrette Lewis, the prima ballerina, the prime suspect? Or did Dr. Griff, the overly-friendly town psychiatrist, make a fatal frenemy? Marcus has to solve the crime and find the killer before the real detective arrives... but the biggest mystery of all is... who stole the ice cream?
