Theater Review: “Disney’s The Little Mermaid”

 “Disney’s The Little Mermaid” runs through September 24, 2017 at San Diego Civic Theatre; 1100 3rd and B Street, Downtown.

Sometimes misfits find each other and get together. The current example is Ariel (adorable Diana Huey), the little mermaid who doesn’t want to be limited to that watery world below. She’d rather find out what’s going on in (and be part of) “The World Above.”

EXCLUSIVE! Go backstage with SDGLN and discover the secrets of 'The Lion King'

The Mufasa, Nala, Scar and Simba masks propped up on a table being primped and pruned just as they would in the African Savanna.

San Diego Gay and Lesbian News got the rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of Disney’s The Lion King now playing at the Civic Theatre through Oct. 2.

This is a spectacular show which is immediately apparent after the lights go down and a familiar baboon begins chanting the first chords to “Circle of Life.”

Theater Review: "Cabaret"

Randy Harrison as the Master of Ceremonies in "Cabaret," stopping in San Diego on its national Broadway tour.

"Leave your troubles outside,” says the Emcee (Randy Harrison). “We have no troubles here.”

If only.

It’s 1929 in Berlin, a chaotic, decadent time when alcohol, drugs and sex may not have been free but were certainly easy to come by.

In the seedy Kit Kat Klub, you could watch girls dance or perhaps (for a price) get more familiar with them. 

THEATER REVIEW: Hit show “Memphis” returns home in triumph

“Memphis” is a toe-tapping triumph, with more intricate and athletic choreography (by Sergio Trujillo) than we saw before, and a powerhouse cast that does the book and the music (by David Bryan and Joe DiPetro) proud.

THEATER REVIEW: “Mary Poppins” is a spoonful of sugar

The beloved show has a built-in following from both the books and the boffo 1964 film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke as the nanny and her buddy the artist/chimney sweep.
