The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors is brought to vibrant life by the blockbuster musical-theater team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice ("Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita"). This light-hearted, pop-music parable is based on the Book of Genesis story about the young man who's sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and ends up in Egypt, where he rises through the ranks and grapples with the pharaoh -- who's portrayed in the hilariously flamboyant style of Elvis. Set to a high-energy mix of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock, this Old Testament tale has proven to be truly timeless. This Lamb's Players Theatre production hits the stage at San Diego's Horton Grand Theatre. [less-]

What could be more "loverly" than spending time with "My Fair Lady"?

Imagine being a fly on the wall and taking in a heated conversation between Dr. Sigmund Freud, the devoutly atheist father of psychoanalysis, and philosophical Christian writer-professor C.S.

A powerful exploration of African-American history and identity, "Crowns" follows six black women in the South whose stories of love, loss and sisterhood are woven into the hats that crown their heads and the dynamic gospel songs that speak their truth. The story centers on Chicago-born Yolanda, who is sent down South after the death of her brother in Brooklyn.

To describe "Parallel Lives" as a collection of grade-A quality "SNL" sketches played by two female comedians who take on an impressive array of characters is true, but not the whole truth. For what makes "Parallel Lives" so special is not the comedy -- although creators Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy are very, very funny writers -- or the characters -- although each one is strong enough to carry a show of its own -- but the quiet moments. For in this wide-ranging collection of laugh-out-loud scenes, there are glimpses of heartbreak and powerful epiphanies. It's those intensely real moments that elevate "Parallel Lives" from a very good comedy to a great piece of theater. Experience it yourself when Sandy Hotchkiss and Rhiannon Jones star in this smart, provocative show from Talent to aMuse Theatre Company. [less-]

If you've ever been weirded out by a leering ventriloquist's dummy or gotten the willies from the twitching animatronics at Chuck E. Cheese, you've been to the "uncanny valley." Described as the discomfort people feel when confronted by objects that look and move almost but not "quite" like real humans, this ambivalent state permeates the new play "Uncanny Valley", at the San Diego REP. Neuroscientist Claire has spent her career trying to craft a "non-biological being." Her latest attempt, Julian, is "born" over the course of the play -- going from just a head to a fully functional body -- as Claire teaches him what it is to be human. But when Claire finally comes face to face with her creation, she's shocked to discover just who is staring back at her. Jessica Bird directs the latest from playwright Thomas Gibbons. [less-]

Face it: Your Fido's fugly. Your Rex is a wreck. Your Lady is a tramp. Enter the "Ugly Dog Contest", a fun family event at Del Mar Fairgrounds that celebrates dogs of all shapes, sizes and HotorNot.com rankings. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the "Ugly Dog Contest" awards prizes to lovable yet attractiveness-challenged pups in 10 categories including Most Unusual Markings, Looks Most Likes Its Owner and, of course, Ugliest Dog. (There are also prizes for the best-looking dogs, if you're into that sort of thing.) Of course, no dog is "truly" ugly -- this is just a fun way to bring a little extra love and attention to the puppy equivalent of that kid no one wanted to sit next to on the school bus. Proceeds will benefit the San Diego Humane Society and college scholarship fundraisers Reality Changers. [less-]
