SAS #15: Musical director Broadway San Diego’s Jersey Boys joins us
In this week’s episode of San Diego Magazine’s performing arts podcast, hosts Erin Glenny, Kim Cunningham, and Dan Letchworth share what’s new in the local theatre scene, like the Old Globe’s 2017-18 season announcement and a thought-provoking op-ed from Voice of San Diego about the proposed arts budget cuts (http://www.voiceofsandiego.org/topics/opinion/smart-cities-are-arts-cities/). Plus, Lamb’s Players Theatre is running a fascinating, lesser-known story about the Harvard women who mapped the cosmos at the turn of the 20th century. Read the full review of Silent Sky over on the Everyone's a Critic blog. Also, we can’t take our eyes off Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical about Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. The San Diego original has come home to the Civic Theatre for just a few short days, and musical director Taylor Peckham (who hails from North County!) gives us the inside scoop.

SAS #14: Jennifer Thorn, Toni Robin
In this week’s episode of San Diego Magazine’s performing arts podcast, hosts Erin Glenny, Kim Cunningham, and Dan Letchworth share what’s new in the local theatre scene, like The Old Globe reprising their successful Thinking Shakespeare Live! event on May 20, and George Takei’s Allegiance (another Globe original) coming back to SoCal next year. Plus, associate artistic director Jennifer Thorn and arts publicist extraordinaire Toni Robin are here to discuss Moxie Theatre’s lesbian outreach initiative, The Bechdel Brigade. If you haven’t heard of the Bechdel Test, you’ll be amazed at how few “classic” movies pass this embarrassingly low bar for female representation in popular media. This community task force is doing some awesome advocacy work to support female playwrights and directors in San Diego.
