Sara Goode, an enormously successful American woman working as the British representative of a major Hong Kong bank, is about to celebrate her 54th birthday, and she isn't exactly happy about it. Firmly ensconced in her lovely London home, she leads a quiet, almost cold, expatriate life with her daughter, Tess. For the birthday celebration, her two sisters, Gorgeous Teitelbaum (a loving housewife and mother with her own call-in radio advice program), and Pfeni Rosensweig (peripatetic third-world travel writer, alas, unmarried), are expected to arrive at any moment. As if this weren't causing Sara enough stress, Mervyn Kant shows up at her door, and she doesn't even know the man, who, at first sight, is instantly smitten with her. Mervyn is a furrier and a friend of Pfeni's on-again-off-again, bi-sexual lover. After her sisters arrive for the celebration, Tess, and her boyfriend, Tom, turn up and advise her that they're planning on rushing off to his ancestral Lithuania for reasons of political protest. Next to arrive is Nicholas, the stuffy Brit whom Sara has been "seeing" although he seems somewhat anti-Semitic. All of this adds up to a most interesting evening filled with unexpected romance, suspected partings, recriminations, reconciliations and, above all, newfound love and acceptance.

Enjoy the San Diego premiere of one of the hottest tickets at the recent Berlin International Film Festival. This is the first time San Diegans will have the opportunity to view the digitally restored version of the 1923 German classic film, The Ancient Law. Making the evening even more special, the film will be accompanied with an original score by renowned pianist and composer Donald Sosin, performed live along with violinist Alicia Svigals, a founder of the Grammy-winning Klezmatics. The film takes on the theme of Jewish assimilation in 19th-century Europe as it contrasts the closed world of shtetl life with liberal society. With its depiction of a Rabbi's son who breaks with family tradition to become an actor, this 1923 film was clearly the inspiration for the groundbreaking 1927 American film, The Jazz Singer. Enjoy The Ancient Law at La Jolla's David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre.

Creating sweet country music, Sugarland is one part Jennifer Nettles and one part Kristian Bush. The duo (originally a trio) first made a name for themselves in 2004 with the release of their single "Baby Girl" off their multi-platinum debut album Twice the Speed of Life. That was followed up with three more albums and a large handful of No. 1 hits (like "Stay," "All I Want to Do" and "Already Gone") as well as a Grammy before the two went on hiatus due to the birth of Nettles' baby. They both pursued solo projects in the interim, and reunited as Sugarland in 2017. Nettles and Bush are currently refreshing their musical visions while staying true to Sugarland's authentic sound and emotive songwriting. They released the single "Still the Same" last December, watching it rise to No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart and No. 9 on the General chart. Now they're hitting the road to reconnect with fans, and you can see them in concert at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Your ticket also includes General Admission to the fair.
