It is a fictional story. This reimagined tale about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s last night is presented in affiliation with The American History Theater, The Roustabouts Theatre, and Teenage Youth Performing Arts Company. Go to wwwtheroustabouts.org for details and tickets.

"Einstein Comes Through" is playing at North Coast Rep through May 23. This charming tale is told with humor covering a vast array of topics. A one act play written by Mark Silver and David Ellenstein, it features Jake Broder as Mr. Einstein. For tickets go to www.northcoastrep.org.

Streaming until May 16 is "Lit, a Virtual Musical for Families" which is a comprehensive, all-inclusive performance "for the whole family." I have not seen Blindspot productions before so don't know anything more than what the press release says. Visit Blindspot Collective for more details. Tickets start at $15.

San Diego Musical Theatre is running a 30-day musical concert fundraiser called "Juke Box Hero" including tunes as far back as the forties and venturing forward into rock 'n' roll including tunes from "Moulin Rouge," "The Cher Show," and even a little "Mamma Mia" thrown in for good measure. For more details go to SDMT.org. You'll be glad you did.

Don't forget to follow New Village Arts at the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Shows are selling out fast. Tickets for upcoming shows are available at www.newvillagearts.org.

Available until May 8 is "Hype Man" via San Diego Rep. The best I can figure out is it's a political diatribe in hip-hop lingo. Probably R rated. SDRE.org.

May 2, Broadway San Diego is bringing Celine Dion's "Titanique" to the west coast. The Sunday show is at 4:30 p.m. PDT. For tickets and more information, visit BroadwaySanDiego.com.
