See the play the Chicago Tribune calls "stimulating" at Cygnet Theatre in San Diego.

Romantic Comedy Vietgone Finds Love in Rural America

In a Vietnamese refugee camp in Arkansas circa 1975, two bereaved Saigon natives find love in a strange new land. So goes Vietgone, a bold new romantic comedy by "geek theater" impresario Qui Nguyen, an artist famous in New York for productions packed full of martial arts, sword fights and puppetry. Based on the lives of his own parents, Vietgone is a slightly more subtle affair, but still reflects Nguyen's irreverent humor and pop-culture-obsessed aesthetic as it crisscrosses between the traumatic evacuation of Saigon and a turbulent yet passionate tale of love in the rural United States. See San Diego Repertory Theatre's production of this wildly imaginative, "culturally savvy comedy" (The New York Times) at The Lyceum Space in San Diego.

Pygmalion Explores the Trials of Transformation

Date: 2018-01-19 | For more show dates, click here.

How much would you bet that you could turn a stranger into a completely different person? Snobby English linguistics professor Henry Higgins bets one of his pals that he can turn a working-class cockney flower girl into a proper, refined lady who could pass for a dutchess at any upper crust party. But Higgins' bet blows up in his face when his creation turns out to be smart, outspoken -- and the love of his life. George Bernard Shaw's most popular play, Pygmalion, is perhaps more widely known as the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady, but this witty romance from the Nobel Prize-winning playwright has been delighting and scandalizing audiences for more than a century -- and its razor-sharp commentary on social class and the battle of the sexes is as relevant as ever. See Professor Higgins' attempt at an extreme makeover when Pygmalion comes to the Patio Playhouse in Escondido.
