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.

Educating Rita

In this award-winning comedy, Frank, a university lecturer, needs to earn some extra money, so he agrees to tutor Rita, a brash, earthy hairdresser with a recently discovered passion for higher education. The result is a delightful Pygmalion-style comedy filled with self-discoveries, temptation and heartfelt humanity that tackle personal and social issues with insight and grace. Made into a highly successful film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, see why the play captivated audiences from London to New York with its humor, heart and intelligence.

An American Story

Following a successful tryout production in Los Angeles, Hershey Felder’s "An American Story," which tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s last day, will have its world premiere at San Diego’s Birch North Park Theatre. For this new production, Felder will create the role of Dr. Charles Augustus Leale, the 23-year-old unknown Union Army medic who was the first individual to reach the presidential box at Ford’s Theatre on the night Lincoln was shot. Lincoln's wife put Leale in charge to see the president through his last hours.

Pete 'n Keely

The year is 1968, and it's been a thrilling week rehearsing at the NBC studios for the live telecast of the "Pete and Keely Reunion Special."

This Off-Broadway hit is packed with classic favorites like "Besame Mucho," "Secret Love" and "Fever" as well as great new songs.
