For couples, especially, there are many great reasons to attend. Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Date to San Diego Theatre Week:
1. Dance (and Sing) The Night Away!
Many of the performances are from the musical theatre tradition. These live performances of dancing and singing are the perfect way to get you and your date in a romantic mood. There will be timeless classics like The Rocky Horror Picture Show as well as new performances like Dances of Love and Laughter - presented by the Lyceum Theatre.
2. Go on, have a laugh!
What could be better for you and your date than to enjoy great comedy shows? Throughout Theatre Week, there will be plenty of hilarious comedy performances to choose from, including:
The Rocky Horror Show: an outrageous musical comedy featuring a Transylvanian transvestite, a cryogenically preserved zombie motor biker, and Frankenstein's monster in Greek god form. This epic show is based on the popular cult classic film.
Italian American Reconciliation: A great romantic comedy involving Italian-Americans caught in a messy love triangle.
Also, the famed National Comedy Theatre will perform their improvised comedy act.
3. It's All An Act
You and your date will see some of the finest theatre performances at San Diego Theatre Week. After all, it would not be a theatre week without watching a great stage play or two.
The theatre performances include the legendary Babette's Feast, based on the Danish short story - about a group of sisters preaching the gospel to an aging congregation in a small Norwegian town.
If you and your date love basketball, then you both will love The Great Leap. This is the story about an American basketball team that travels to China for a game. There are cultural and political clashes that occur during this time. Written by the great playwright Lauren Yee, this is one of the most frequently produced plays in the United States.
