The longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history, Golda’s Balcony tells the incredible story of Golda Meir, Israel’s first female prime minister.  On the eve of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, in which Egypt and Syria mounted attacks on Israel, Meir reflects upon her life and relives key moments in her political and spiritual development. As she inches closer to nuclear war, Meir must confront the question that has echoed since she took office: what happens when ideology becomes power?

by The Editors on February 10, 2016

8d7987d9-6f92-4444-bee3-6b48ec94375f

The San Diego premiere of Emile kicks off at the New Village Arts Theatre on February 13, 2016, but previews are still rolling if you want a sneak peak.

La Marquise du Châtelet was a mathematician, a physicist and the toast of the Enlightenment. So why then is the Marquise not better known? Like so many influential women of the time, her contributions have largely been attributed to her male contemporaries. But now, Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, the brilliant play from award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson, resurrects this fascinating personality and brings her once more into the light.

See a preview on Thursday, February 11 or 12, 2016. For more info, please click the link.

The Carlsbad Art Wall at Señor Grubby’s is getting a whole new look on the weekend of January 16, 2016 as Encinitas based artist Skye Walker takes over the east wall of the Carlsbad eatery.

The first 2016 CAW artist Skye Walker will bring his life-long love for illustration, design and mural painting to the CAW with his signature colorful composition of nature and environmentally conscious iconography. Walker found his love for art in his early youth while traveling the country with the family bluegrass band named EarthWalkers. They logged over 2,000 shows nationwide singing about preserving the environment. During this time, Walker’s father taught him the art of lettering and murals. His father was an accomplished sign painter and muralist in the 70’s and 80’s.

Sylvia At New Village Arts Theatre

by The Editors on June 10, 2015

SylviaCarlsbad’s own New Village Arts Theatre presents the A.R. Gurney’s romantic comedy Sylvia. Here’s what it’s got going on:

When Greg adopts a dog named Sylvia, or rather is adopted by the street-smart mutt, Sylvia (played, alas, by a human) soon turns into a bone of contention for his wife Kate. . . In this romantic comedy by A.R. Gurney, the author of Love Letters, the long-married empty nesters have to dig their way out of an unexpected hole: Kate feels that she’s losing Greg to his adoring new best friend. This imaginative take on a midlife crisis leads to lots of laughs and thoughtful insights on love, marriage, jealousy and canines.

Dog people will likely love this one. Sylvia runs June 6 – June 28, 2015. The New Village Arts Theatre is located at 2787 State St, in Carlsbad, California. Click here to purchase tickets.
