It's 1985, and rock star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother's basement, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. The only problem is that Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark — and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the '80s, The Wedding Singer takes you back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just have been the coolest guy in the room. Enjoy this fun musical, based on the hit Adam Sandler film, at San Diego’s Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center.

Fun Pageant Takes on Beauty & Talent Competitions

Move over, Miss America -- there's a new Pageant in town! A loving ribbing of national beauty pageants, this clever, tongue-in-cheek show from OB Theatre Company takes its shots not by mocking the wild world of pageants from the outside, but by actually being one. Six contestants will take the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center stage to compete for the title of Miss Glamouresse, named after the show's fictional cosmetics company sponsor. You'll meet Miss Deep South, Miss West Coast, Miss Texas, Miss Great Plains, Miss Bible Belt and Miss Industrial Northeast as they compete in evening gown, talent, swimsuit and spokes-modeling competitions (the finalists answer "actual" calls from the Glamouresse Beauty Crisis Hotline!). The show's judges, selected from the audience, actually vote and determine the grand prize winner each night, so no two shows are ever the same.

Nellie McKay Is Joan Rivers in The Big Molinksy

Date: 2019-02-21 | For more show dates, click here.

Nellie McKay exploded onto the music scene in 2004 with her eclectic showstopper, Get Away From Me, “a tour de force from a sly, articulate musician” (The New York Times). With a voice that can be boisterous and bold or soft and breathy, McKay harnesses the agility of a superstar athlete from the piano bench. She's maintained that adventurousness -- starring on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera, opening for Lou Reed at Carnegie Hall, duetting with Eartha Kitt and recording a dazzling tribute to Doris Day. In her solo show The Big Molinksy: Considering Joan Rivers at the David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre in La Jolla, McKay delivers a performance for the ages as the talented and treasured Joan Rivers (playing a few other people in Rivers’ life to boot).
