Reviews of ‘Kingdom City’ and ‘Fallen Angels’

Current offerings from La Jolla Playhouse and North Coast Rep top our coverage of local plays

By David L. Coddon

‘Les Miz’ gets rousing treatment at Lamb’s Players Theatre

Popular musical tops our coverage of local plays

By David L. Coddon

‘Quartet’ lags when it should enliven

A review on the Old Globe production tops our coverage of local play

By David L. Coddon
Jean, the biggest opera star of the four, is feeling sorry for herself when she isn’t feeling hostile, and Reggie conceals his self-indulgence in brooding and ominous silences.

Much ado in North County theaters

Reviews of ‘The Full Monty” and the latest Intrepid Shakespeare Co. production top our coverage of local plays

Out of anesthesia and into the—piano?
