It still came as a surprise to learn that after 46-years San Diego Repertory Theatre is suspending all productions for the remainder of this year. The entire 2022 season has been canceled and all employees are to be dismissed on June 19. The notice arrived a few days ago and the concern may well be that live theatre is in trouble. Well, honestly, it is like any other business. Serve up a product that consumers want to see or suffer the consequences. On the other hand, just maybe being ‘woke’ isn’t the answer to entertainment.

On sale now at Broadway San Diego is “Pretty Woman, The Musical” coming July 26-31. Heads up for comedian Jerry Seinfeld tickets Sept. 16 at 7:30 or 9:30 p.m. downtown at 3651 4th Street. Don’t forget to grab tickets for “Disney’s Lion King” while you’re at it. For tickets, visit
