10:00 AM Book Signing: Somewhere in Europe - The WWII Letters of Sam Lesner Sisters Judy Lesner Holstein and Roberta Lesner Bernstein will present their book Somewhere in Europe: The WWII Letters of Sam Lesner. He wrote letters to his wife daily in 1944-45 while serving in the U.S. army 130th General Hospital in France and Belgium. The letters were saved but hidden away until the sisters found them in 2004. Sam Lesner was an award winning film and nightlife critic with the Chicago Daily News for 50 years. His intention to write a book based on his letters was never fulfilled. The sisters carried out his wishes 74 years after his eloquent, poignant letters were written during WWII, which tell a universal tale of fear and generosity, brutality, and humanity.

7:00 PM Stage: Aubergine San Diego Repertory Theatre presents "Aubergine," an unforgettable story of love, family and the healing power of food.​

Ray believes in the power of food. As a gourmet chef, he's seen a bowl of berries help a woman to fall in love. He's heard stories of a meal prepared by a mother to keep a son from leaving home and moving to the other side of the world. Now with the help of his uncle, who arrives unexpectedly from Korea, Ray is tasked with preparing a family soup recipe to keep his father alive.

When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it's the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. "Aubergine" is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient—it's the main course.

The show runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 17, 2019, in the Lyceum Space Theatre in Horton Plaza. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the San Diego REP Box Office, by calling the box office at (61) 544-1000, or online at sdrep.org

8:00 PM Theater: Isabella Rossellini's Link Link Circus Link Link Circus is at once comic and scientifically informed, arguing Darwin's theory of evolution that links humans to animals. The show is illustrated with legendary Isabella Rossellini's short comic films, home movies and animation. She transforms herself into philosophers of the past like Aristotle, René Descartes and a medieval theologian, while her dog Pan plays various animals, assisted by puppeteer and animal handler Schuyler Beeman. Judaism teaches that animals are part of God's creation and should be treated with compassion. God makes a covenant with the animals, just as he does with humans. Co-Directed by Guido Torlonia

Admission/Cost: $65 - $85
