Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an under-seat gum wad is permissible.

For those who struggle to read CliffsNotes without the guidance of a Sherpa, a night of fast-paced live-action literature at San Diego REP helps keep things clear, entertaining, and to the point. With 37 of Bill’s works performed in 97 minutes, the show traverses a mind-spiking storyline full of laughs, tears, and historical nuggets. One moment you’re mourning the tragic death of yet another character, and the next you’re realizing why your 8th-grade English paper scored modest marks.
Shakespeare groupies and Old English opponents can finally unite under the ridiculous pokes and jokes from the Reduced Shakespeare Company. These well-educated stage sprinters have abridged anything from the history of Western Civilization to the answer-laden television series Lost. Toe the philistine line and fill your brainal cavities with more pages than a librarian can shake a bookmark at with this theatrical deal.
Five Yelpers give San Diego Repertory Theatre an average of 4.5 stars: > * …the rep is a great intimate place to watch a play. Every seat in the house has a great view of the stage. The orchestra is cooly located above and behing [sic] the main stage. – Geoffrey L. > * I’ve only seen a couple of plays, but the musicals have been over the top… great performances, intimate settings and the downtown vibe works. – David C.
