Avenue Q  
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.
   
Bull in a China Shop  
Diversionary Theatre Bull in a China Shop
 
Set at the dawn of the 20th century, Bull in a China Shop traces the true story of Mary Woolley and her partner Jeannette Marks as they set out to revolutionize women's education and electrify the suffrage movement. Told with a modern twist that shoots from the hip, this surprising, whip-smart comedy examines the ambition and desires of two women bent on changing the course of history, and how they ended up changing each other. San Diego's Diversionary Theatre brings their fight to life on stage.
   
Crimes of the Heart  
Lamplighters Theatre Crimes of the Heart
 
The three Magrath sisters have gathered in Hazelhurst, Mississippi, where they await news of the family patriarch, who's living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny is unmarried at 30 and her marital prospects are bleak. Meg's lamenting a failed singing career. Meanwhile, Babe is out on bail after having shot her husband. Their troubles are grave and yet, somehow, hilarious. Warm-hearted and irreverent, this 1981 Pulitzer Prize- and New York Drama Critics Circle Award-winning show teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young sisters betrayed by their passions. Watch as Crimes of the Heart dissects this dysfunctional Southern family at Lamplighters Theatre in La Mesa.
   
Guys and Dolls  
The Star Theatre Guys and Dolls
 
Roll the dice with Guys & Dolls, the gritty musical fable that takes you back to prohibition-era New York City, with a little side trip to Havana. Guys & Dolls soars with the spirit of Broadway, embodied in its cast of vivid characters, including: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer who's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. Based on "The Idyll of Sarah Brown" and characters by Damon Runyon, plus an iconic score by Frank Loesser that includes such songs as "Luck Be A Lady," "Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat," "If I Were A Bell," and "A Bushel and a Peck," Guys & Dolls is a timeless treat at Star Theatre in Oceanside.
   
One Slight Hitch  
Point Loma Playhouse One Slight Hitch
 
When it comes to something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, few brides expect the something "old" to be an uninvited ex-lover. It's Courtney's wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then -- like in any good farce -- the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect. Written by acerbic, manic, belligerent stand-up comedian Lewis Black, One Slight Hitch marches onto the stage at Point Loma Playhouse.
