BOLD: The Art of DNA Barcoding

Janzen's caterpillar and butterfly photographs from Area de Conservacion Guanacaste (ACG), Costa Rica.

Behold, America!

This fall, three San Diego art museums — the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum of Art — will bring together the finest American works from their permanent collections to present a groundbreaking collaborative exhibition titled "Behold, America!: Art of the United States from Three San Diego Museums." Internationally known for their permanent collections and scholarly exhibitions, these institutions together provide a three-museum venue for "Behold, America!," which will be on view from Nov. 10, 2012, through Feb. 10, 2013. This civic collaboration, which presents work from the colonial period to the present, offers an unprecedented opportunity to view the full sweep of American art history as told through the visual art of three institutions, and to reconsider how national and individual identities have shifted over time. While lending selected works among institutions is not uncommon, "Behold, America!" is unique in the scope of the exchange and the intermingling of these distinctive collections. It is also the first time the three institutions have worked together on one project.

The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)

After a seven-year hiatus, a holiday production returns to San Diego REPertory Theatre. Christmas will never be the same once you share the holiday with the inspired lunacy of the masters of condensing the classics, the Reduced Shakespeare Company. Since 1981, the company has delighted audiences throughout North America and England with their reduced versions of “The Complete Works of Shakespeare,” the Bible, “All the Great Books,” “The History of America,” and even the “World of Sports.” Regardless of your religious persuasion, the Reduced Shakespeare Company promises a good time gift-wrapped in a package of song, parody, an elf ballet, anachronistic dance fever disco moves, and delightfully twisted holiday cheer.


OnStage Playhouse has been selected to stage the world premiere of Jane Austen’s most romantic novel, “Persuasion,” adapted by Jon Jory, one of the best known living American playwrights. Image-conscious patriarch Sir Walter Elliot must rent the family estate to avoid bankruptcy. His daughter Anne is surprised to learn that the sister of Capt. Wentworth, a man whose proposal she was persuaded to refuse years before, has taken the estate. Then, Wentworth was a poor sailor with no social standing, but he has returned a rich and eligible officer. As they are thrown into one another's company once again, Anne's affection remains despite her lack of hope for any reconciliation. But when Wentworth begins to show signs of jealousy toward one of her suitors, she must summon the courage to seek out his true feelings. This movingly romantic adaptation of Jane Austen's last novel brings a classic story of enduring love to the stage.

Christmas on My Mind

For 2012 we bring back one of Kerry Meads' most popular "new" scripts: "Christmas on My Mind." A diverse group of travelers finds themselves stranded by an unexpected snowstorm. They all make their way to a cabin in the woods and create a celebration by sharing music and stories. Surprising, fun and refreshing, the performance includes a beautiful blend of original music and traditional favorites.


Based on the novel by Jane Austen, adapted by Jon Jory, directed by Carla Nell. The Elliott family verges on financial ruin and image-conscious patriarch Sir Walter must rent their estate to avoid bankruptcy.
