August Wilson's plays flow like a musical score, soprano highs and bass lows about the black experience in America. Theater critic Jeremy Gerard said August Wilson "writes plays not for Broadway, but which Broadway simply must have - even if it means getting them last."
Wendy Waddell (left) with Monique Gaffney in Bluebonnet Court I'm asking actors and designers to name their five dream roles/projects and say why. The answers not only reveal aspirations, they may put an idea in the minds of artistic directors and producers - even choices that seem outside the box.
Praise Cygnet Theatre! Without this company's ongoing efforts, San Diego might not have seen August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean, The Piano Lesson, Fences and, currently in repertory, Seven Guitars and King Hedley II. That's five of Wilson's monumental 10-play chronicle of the black experience in America.
She said when she told Castaneda and Silva about the basket, they were excited and wanted to know if it was a fancy tamul basket. They were disappointed to find out it was only an open twined berry-gathering basket.

October Sky: Like the Wright brothers trying to solve the "lift equation" 54 years earlier, the Big Creek Missile Agency experiments and fails, and fails, and then succeeds. If you decide to see the Old Globe's October Sky, take your seat early. Kevin Depinet's set has the composition and texture of a quality painting.
I'm from Northern California. Moved to Orange County in 1969 for graduate school. Didn't think much of the region: mostly scrub, ragweed, and rabbit hills back then. But - the sportscasters! Vin Scully made Dodger games mellifluous. Chick Hearn a jackhammer for the Lakers, and a phrasemaker.
As hot rodders continue to grow older, years seem to slip away faster than we could ever imagine. It's a little scary that 1965 was more than 50 years ago, but it's so easy to remember hot rods like this '34 Plymouth coupe as a common sight at your local dragstrip or favorite cruising spot.
It would not be right to celebrate the Camaro's 50th anniversary without mentioning the other F-Body to come from GM in 1967. We went into the archives and found Eric Dahlquist's initial road test of a Firebird 400 convertible in the Feb. 1967 issue of Hot Rod.
In Manifest Destinitis, the afflicted Don Aragon can't tell love from hate. He's convinced wife Belen adores him, even as she schemes with a gringo to steal the estate. San Diego sees many world premieres in various stages of readiness. The San Diego Rep's opening night for Manifest Destinitis didn't feel new at all.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
