Craig Noel, executive director at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA, will mark his 65th year in southern California theatre by directing Joe DiPietro's Over the River and Through the Woods.
The comedy, which runs March 25-April 30, opening March 30 in the Globe's second space, stars Marion Ross, who last worked with Noel in 1973. Both attended San Diego State University and have gone on to illustrious careers in theatre. Ross was also a regular on two TV series, "Happy Days" and "Brooklyn Bridge." Others in the cast include Christine Brown, Laura James, Paul Michael, Matthew Troncone and Sam Vlahos.
DiPietro is also the co-author of the Off-Broadway revue, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.
The Globe's mainstage will be home to Steven Dietz's Private Eyes, which opens March 25 for a five-week run, directed by Globe Associate Director Brendon Fox. In that cast are Meg Brogan, Sean Fortunado, Gildart Jackson, Tertia Lynch and Wendell Wright.
The Old Globe Theatre, now in its 65th anniversary season, is located in Balboa Park. For tickets and information, call (619) 239-2255. -- By Willard Manus
