Every theater aficionado loves a couple of shows that are obscure and not well known to the public. Director, Rick Simas, has revived a 1960’s ensemble musical at the North Coast Repertory Theatre that I’m fairly confident that only those intimately involved in the community have heard of, Man With a Load of Mischief.
“In the Heights” is the fourth collaboration between the San Diego Repertory Theatre and the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. While I am a graduate of SCPA and some of the cast from “In the Heights” are from SDSU, where I attend college, I promise that the following review is completely objective.
The National Comedy Theatre is San Diego is something of an anomaly. While the family friendly venue has had many sold out shows and earned a lot of praise, NCT is still under the radar.
In 2011, The Book of Mormon swept the Tony Awards and overshadowed all the other shows it was up against. While I love that religious satire, other productions nominated for Best Musical that year deserve a little bit more recognition.
