As You Like It

By William Shakespeare Directed by Jessica Stone

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.”

The 2019 Shakespeare Festival kicks off with the Bard’s fabulously charming romantic comedy, whose heroine is one of his most remarkable creations. The magical forest of Arden is the play’s famous setting, where a gallery of eccentric characters comes together to find love, fortune, redemption...and themselves. Banished from the court by her deceitful and treacherous uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy, not knowing that the man she loves, also on the run, is behind the next tree. Bucolic Balboa Park is the ideal spot for Shakespeare’s enticing tale of mistaken identity, heartfelt romance, and the endearing fumbles and foibles of love.

Since their serendipitous start in a Southern Utah piano shop, THE PIANO GUYS have proven to be a powerhouse group without limits. Arriving as a musical phenomenon seemingly overnight, the quartet of Jon Schmidt [pianist, songwriter], Steven Sharp Nelson [cellist, songwriter], Paul Anderson [producer, videographer], and Al van der Beek [music producer, songwriter] have delivered bold compositions that transcend boundaries of style and genre, a boundlessness that has since translated into a massively-successful career.

August Wilson’s Jitney

Jan 18 - Feb 23, 2020

The American master and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson had a close relationship with The Old Globe, where three of his plays premiered. His exciting work returns to our stage with the production that won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, directed by one of Wilson’s foremost interpreters, Ruben Santiago-Hudson. In 1970s Pittsburgh, the unlicensed cab drivers in a Hill District garage fight to save their business and their livelihoods as their neighborhood gentrifies around them. As the drivers strive to fulfill their hopes and dreams, Wilson’s bracing command of drama and thrilling sense of language conjure stage brilliance. Contains strong language.

The Sunshine Boys at North Coast Repertory Theatre

Oct 23 - Nov 17, 2019

The Sunshine Boys deftly showcases the late Neil Simon’s brilliant ear for sidesplitting dialogue and his sharp eye for physical comedy. Yet beneath the raucous laughter are two vulnerable people struggling to make sense of their lives. North Coast Repertory Theatre has earned numerous accolades by critics and audiences alike for capturing the nuances of Simon’s memorable characters who wrestle with love, loss, work, family and aging. Simon’s plays historically sell out rapidly, so early ticket buying is highly recommended.
