08/19/2019 - Stage: The Underpants
Legendary comedian and writer Steve Martin is back at The Old Globe with "The Underpants," a riotously funny farce.

Newly married Louise is bored with her demanding and uptight bureaucrat husband. Then one day at the royal parade, she jumps up on a bench to see the king go by, and oops — wardrobe malfunction! — her bloomers come loose and fall down around her ankles. Her husband is frantic that her faux pas will cost him his job and reputation. But suddenly the room they've been trying to rent out has plenty of takers, and it just might have something to do with ... the underpants.

Steve Martin, who gave Globe audiences hits like "Picasso at the Lapin Agile," "Bright Star" and "Meteor Shower" brings us a hilarious look at sudden fame and the crazy things people do when they're in the grip of romantic fever.

The New York Times calls the play "laugh-out-loud funny!" and "an amalgam of comic book and social commentary made out of sex jokes, slamming doors, and sophisticated repartee."

Written by Martin, the story is adapted from "Die Hose" by Carl Sternheim, and is directed by Walter Bobbie. "The Underpants" runs July 27 through Sept. 8, to order tickets by phone call (619) 234-5623.

Admission/Cost: $30 - $90

Location:
Old Globe Theatre
1363 Old Globe Way

08/18/2019 - Art & Empire: The Golden Age Of Spain
The San Diego Museum of Art presents Art & Empire: The Golden Age of Spain, a diverse selection of more than 100 outstanding works produced by leading artists from Spain and its global territories.

Art & Empire: The Golden Age of Spain is the first exhibition in the United States to expand the notion of the "Golden Age" to include the Hispanic world beyond the shores of the Iberian Peninsula. Such far-flung Spanish-controlled centers as Antwerp, Naples, Mexico, Lima, and the Philippines are represented by paintings, sculpture and decorative arts of astounding quality and variety from the pivotal years of about 1660 to 1750.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Diego Velázquez, Peter Paul Rubens, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Francisco de Zurbarán, Jusepe de Ribera, El Greco, Juan de Valdés Leal, Juan Sánchez Cotán, and many more. This exhibition also marks the first time since the 1935 exhibition for the California Pacific International Exposition that all five of the Spanish masters represented on the Museum's building façade — Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, Ribera and El Greco — will be shown together at the museum.

There will also be a wide variety of public programming to complement the show, find details here.

08/23/2019 - Music: Metalachi
On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico, circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock 'n Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill-advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children were born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just outside of Juarez Mexico—mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words Paranoid and Black Sabbath. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor...but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today.
