Broadway SD announces 2002-2003 lineup

Whether you are in the mood for a good laugh, a good story, good music, good dancing or just a good time, Broadway San Diego has something for you. The 2002-2003 season has a variety of shows that encompass the serious, the silly and everything in between.

Among the shows offered this season are two of special interest to those at UCSD. The first, “”Seussical — The Musical,”” plays Oct. 29 through Nov. 3 this year. This show features many favorites created by Dr. Seuss, such as “”The Cat in the Hat”” and “”The Whos.””

The other show is “”Rent,”” which plays from Aug. 7-12. This Tony Award-winning musical by Jonathan Larson was cultivated at the La Jolla Playhouse just a few years ago. The show deals with the lives of young adults as they try to make their dreams come true in New York and deals with a variety of intense topics while weaving in a wonderful musical score that lifts up a potentially overwhelming story.

With so many shows offered this season, there is something for everyone. If you want something lighthearted, check out “”Guys and Dolls,”” “”The Music Man,”” “”South Pacific”” or “”Beauty and the Beast.”” For something more serious, “”Copenhagen,”” “”The Full Monty,”” and “”Jesus Christ Superstar”” are wonderful. The theater will also give the West Coast premiere of Mel Brooks’ new musical, “”The Producers.””

For a more musical experience, “”Blast!”” has 54 brass, percussion and visual performers for a special visual and musical show. Finally, “”Stomp”” combines spirited, rhythmically inclined performers with everyday objects to create a unique theater experience.

For those who do not like musicals, “”Moiseyev”” combines classical ballet with folk dancing direct from Moscow.

No matter what your taste in theater is, Broadway San Diego’s 2002-2003 season has something for you. For more information call (619) 615-4178 or visit www.broadwaysd.com
