Where: The Old Globe

The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family. The firm, compassionate Faye holds them together, and she’s only months away from retiring with her full pension. The production, shown at the Globe's theatre-in-the-round, details the 2008 auto crisis in Detroit. As auto plants begin shutting down, Faye, mere months away from retirement, is stuck between loyalty to her coworkers and her own personal goals. The production, directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg, premieres April 13th; in the meantime, we spoke with actress Tonye Patano about Skeleton Crew, the Detroit crisis, and what she keeps in the truck of her car.

La Traviata

When: April 22nd–30th
Where: San Diego Civic Theatre

The Roaring Twenties brought us novel inventions, a racy new culture and dramatic social change….and for Violetta Valery, illness, judgment and sacrifice. This party girl lives life on her own terms, gives into pleasure for money and keeps her heart safe, until she meets a man who changes her life. Choosing love over freedom, Violetta cannot resist these feelings and the couple begin their life together, until an unwelcome visitor threatens their future. Will Violetta bend to the will of another or surrender to her heart? And can she do it in time? Directed by Marta Domingo, La traviata transports us to the past to a love story with poignant themes that transcend the ages.
