King Hedley II graces the stage at Cygnet

sandiegoreader.com — 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."

My Acting Bucket List: Wendy Waddell

sandiegoreader.com — 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.

Death is almost the eighth character on stage

sandiegoreader.com — 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.

San Diego’s early modern Indians

The Old Globe’s October Sky is sermon on stick-to-itiveness

sandiegoreader.com — 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.

Dick Enberg: the Call of Calls

sandiegoreader.com — 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.

The 1934 Plymouth Coupe He Built as a Teenager is Seeing Light Again after 30 Years in the Basement - Hot Rod Network

hotrod.com — 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.

Vintage Road Test: 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400 - Hot Rod Network

hotrod.com — 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.

Tuna casserole made funny in Manifest Destinitis

sandiegoreader.com — 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.
