Theater Review: “American Buffalo"

“American Buffalo” plays through December 7, 2019 at the Tenth Avenue Arts Center, 930 Tenth Ave., downtown.

It’s a story of a couple of minor-league crooks planning a revenge heist. Backyard presents this funny and profane American classic through Dec. 7 at the Tenth Avenue Arts Center. Rosina Reynolds directs.

Donny (Francis Gercke), proprietor of a cluttered junk resale shop, has sold a buffalo head nickel for $90, but now thinks it’s worth a good deal more and wants it back.

Theater Review: “And Neither Have I Wings To Fly”

"Even Emmerson’s stolid Leo engages the audience; we can’t help but be affected as we watch him begin to realize that his life may not go as planned."

Love, loss, dreams and responsibility haunt the characters in Ann Noble’s “And Neither Have I Wings To Fly,” playing through Dec. 8 at Scripps Ranch Theatre.

Theater Review: “The Last Five Years”

“The Last Five Years” plays through November 17, 2019 at Cygnet Theatre.

Theater Review: “Ring Round The Moon”

Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 pm; Friday at 8 pm.; Saturday at 4 and 8 pm.; Sunday at 2 pm.

The moon is blamed for all sorts of bizarre human behavior. It is also said that a ring around the moon portends change, and you’ll see plenty of that in Christopher Fry’s 1950 “Ring Round the Moon,” a wild adaptation of Jean Anouilh’s 1947 “Invitation to the Castle.”

Theater Review: "Noura"

“Noura” plays through October 20, 2019 at The Old Globe’s Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.

Getting the short end of the professional, financial and social sticks is something women have become used to through the ages. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t chafed at those very bitter bits. Let’s face it, ladies, things have improved but we’re still fighting that battle today.

San Diegan Cameron Crowe’s autobiographical musical “Almost Famous,” based on his hit 2000 movie, tells the story of Crowe as a 15-year-old rock fan, dedicated to the music and determined to become a music journalist.
