While you might not know him by name, you know his lyrics: "Everybody's talkin' at me ..."; "I can't live, if living is without you ..."; "One is the loneliest number ..." and "You put the lime in the coconut ... ." He's Harry Nilsson, "the most famously anonymous composer and performer of our time." Now this underappreciated singer-songwriter, who was a favorite of the Beatles, gets his due in "Everybody's Talkin': The Music of Harry Nilsson". This world premiere musical by the team behind "Suds: The Rockin' 60s Musical Soap Opera" stars Tony Award winners Gregory Jbara ("Billy Elliot") and Alice Ripley ("Next to Normal"), and explores the incredible journey from innocence to adulthood through the many stages of love. It's all set to Nilsson's evocative and heartfelt songbook. See the San Diego Repertory Theatre production at the Lyceum Stage. [less-]

At a certain point, an expanding waistline becomes a tightening leash, a little shorter with every pound gained. And if you're tipping the scales at 600 pounds like Charlie, the moving (but nearly immobile) protagonist of "The Whale", you're kept on a very short tether indeed. Since the death of his boyfriend, Charlie has been confined to his small Idaho apartment where he tries to eat himself to death. Unwilling to seek medical treatment despite a health scare, he instead attempts to reconnect with the teenage daughter he hasn't seen in 15 years. MacArthur "Genius Grant" recipient and Obie Award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter ("A Bright New Boise") wrote this humorous and big-hearted drama that won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play. Now Cygnet Theatre Company mounts a sure-to-be provocative production. [less-]

Based on the unforgettable 1952 film starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, the stage musical "Singin' in the Rain" pays tribute to both the MGM movie musicals of the '40s and the late-'20s birth of talking movies. The zany, lighthearted romantic comedy is set in the days just after the success of the first talkie, "The Jazz Singer", when film studio executives find themselves scrambling to salvage the career of Lina Lamont, a silent picture star with an iron-clad contract ... and a voice like a screech monkey. They finally decide to hire an aspiring actress to overdub Lina's voice in an upcoming film. But when the leading man falls in love with the voice-over girl, and the audience clamors for Lina herself to sing live, there's plenty of hilarious trouble afoot! This upbeat and uplifting production from San Diego Musical Theatre features onstage rain effects and exhilarating choreography set to classic tunes that you know and love, including "Good Morning," "Make 'Em Laugh" and the title song.

Penned after composer William Finn ("25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee") was hospitalized with a mysterious illness, "A New Brain" is a semi-autobiographical account of a composer's near-death experience through the lens of fear, forgiveness, singing frogs and ... dancing doughnuts.

When he suddenly collapses from a brain disorder requiring emergency surgery, a hallucinatory journey unfolds as Schwinn struggles to create his greatest songs while still recovering. With big production numbers depicting intimate personal epiphanies, "A New Brain" is a funny theatrical adventure and a touching story about the healing power of art. Kim Strassburger directs this San Diego premiere, written by Finn and James Lapine ("Into the Woods"), at Diversionary Theatre. [less-]
