While "Happy Days’" Marion Ross runs Over the River and Through the Woods on the Old Globe Theatre's mainstage, the Cassius Carter Centre Stage gives San Diego a peek at Private Eyes March 22-April 30. Brendon Fox directs the romantic thriller, opening March 25. The simple truth of Steven Dietz's Private Eyes is that Lisa, the actress wife of Matthew, is having an affair. Or is that just the play she's rehearsing? And why is the local waitress shadowing the two of them? Dietz's comic puzzle play received its debut at the 1997 Humana Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, and has since been produced across the country.
The cast of Private Eyes, all making their Old Globe debuts, features Meg Brogan as Lisa and Sean Fortunado as Matthew, with Gildart Jackson as Adrian, Tertia Lynch as Cory and Wendell Wright as Frank.
The design team includes Robin Sanford Roberts (sets), Ron Vodicka (lighting), Dione Lebhar (costumes) and Jeff Ladman (sound). Raul Moncada is the stage manager.
Tickets are $42-$23. The Old Globe Theatre is located in Balboa Park, beside the Museum of Man. For tickets, call (619) 239-2255. The Old Globe is on the web at http://www.oldglobe.org.
