Steven Dietz's Private Eyes closes April 30 on San Diego's Cassius Carter Centre Stage. Performances began March 22 with an opening March 25. Brendon Fox directs the romantic thriller. The simple truth of 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 both 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.
