New Village Arts’ God Of Carnage

by The Editors on October 5, 2016

godofcarnage

Talk about parent traps. God Of Carnage, a one-act comedy, takes you on an adventure into the darkest, most terrifying recesses of American life: parenthood.

When two New York couples meet to discuss their sons’ playground tussle, a civilized evening of pleasantries and small talk erupts in a chaotic explosion of anarchy and vitriol. GOD OF CARNAGE delivered a sucker-punch to the Broadway scene, taking home the 2009 Tony for Best Play and earning knock-out reviews. This production boasts an all-star cast of NVA veterans: Manny Fernandes, Melissa Fernandes, Jeffrey Jones*, and our own Executive Artistic Director, Kristianne Kurner!

Pay-what-you-want previews begin Friday, October 14, 2016. For more information, please click the link.

Behind The Oklahoma Scenes At NVA

by The Editors on September 1, 2016

Carlsbad’s New Village Arts Theatre is currently performing their production of the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Oklahoma, and the show has been receiving rave reviews.

Oklahoma! is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece about a romantic rivalry on the Western frontier which boasts a collection of classic songs and a spirit that’s made it an enduring favorite. The story of the lovely Laurey and her two determined suitors — Curly the cowboy and Jud the hired farmhand — also tackles the class issues between farmers and cattlemen in the rugged landscape of a new state.

Gloria Muriel On The Carlsbad Art Wall

by The Editors on May 27, 2016

CarlsbadArtWall_GloriaMuriel

On June 4-5, 2016 the Carlsbad Art Wall at 377 Carlsbad Village Drive, in Carlsbad, California will be home to new mural by San Diego based muralist Gloria Muriel.

Through her art, Gloria creates a portal to her own cosmic dreams and fantasies. She shows us a unique and magical world that exists beyond our reality—a universe in complete harmony with nature. Gloria’s intention is to awaken hearts and open minds to the raw novelty of the present moment. Meditation helps guide her to see the divine presence found in everything that exists. . . Gloria’s murals are often based around the geometries of a face, with lines and patterns borrowed from the natural world — elements of flowing water and sublime vegetation suggest an abundance of growing, healing, and evolving life. Her murals can be found in Mexicali, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Mexico City, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Miami.
