Chekhov Unscripted

June 13th, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Here’s a little known fact about Russia’s greatest playwright: he’s also funny! Spend an evening with the beautiful, damaged, poetic, joyous, petty, coarse and tyrannical characters of Chekhov.

Chekhov’s world is populated by people who dream of a different life, all the while dealing with the everyday unpredictability of feeling love, disillusionment, and the certain catastrophe that is the next moment.


Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival


June 20th & 21st, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Directed by David Ellenstein

A story as relevant today as it was during the McCarthy Era…
A curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950’s Hollywood. He now has to make the biggest decision of his life. Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant solo comedy shows one small man facing the tough American events of the mid-20th century.

The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron

August 10 + 12, 2016 @ 8:00pm

August 13, 2016 @ 2:00pm

Robert Dubac’s THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is an international comedic phenomenon. Described by The New York Times as “Hilarious... a one man tour de force!” it is hands down one of the funniest solo shows you will ever see.

Men and women from eighteen to eighty laugh non-stop as Robert Dubac embarks on a quest to answer the age old question, “What do women want?” With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, he seamlessly transforms himself into five hysterical boneheads who offer sidesplitting advice on how to best straddle the gender gap - all while drinking a beer.

Hailed by critics and audiences alike: “THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is a rare thing; a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative and insightful all at once. There are two types of people who should rush and see it - men and women!” - The Providence Journal

Book of Moron

August 11 + 13, 2016 @ 8:00pm

August 14, 2016 @ 2:00pm

Robert Dubac’s newest Off-Broadway solo hit, THE BOOK OF MORON, has been described as one of the most “Hilarious” “Intelligent” and “Scorching” satirical attacks on idiocracy since Mark Twain. (And “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that?)

The New York Times raves, “Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity, there’s laughter for all!”

If you are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; if you are tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television; then buckle them up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy.

It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?

Suburban Showgirl

August 15-17, 2016 @ 7:30pm

A hilarious and heartwarming story about life and how to dance it.

This dramatic musical comedy takes you into the heart and soul of a modern day dancer/wife/mother. While locked in the bathroom 5 minutes before curtain, former Rockette-turned- Magician's Assistant Wendy Walker looks into her past to understand how her perfectly choreographed life has spun wildly out of control.

Writer-Performer Palmer Davis brilliantly plays over 20 characters whose struggles and triumphs will make you laugh and cry. “Exquisite top to bottom…. Suburban Showgirl has it all!” … Hollywood Times
