Top Things to Do in San Diego

Warm summer weather and these top things to do in San Diego are inviting you to spend the upcoming weekend smiling in California’s Beach City.

Kiss My Aztec!

When: September 3 – October 13, 2019
When the Spanish set their sights on Mesoamerica and its riches, they will destroy anyone and anything that keeps them from conquering and claiming it all for themselves. But the Aztecs are like, “Hell, no!” This fresh, irreverent and outrageous satire could only spring forth from the insanely hilarious mind of John Leguizamo, last seen at the Playhouse in his acclaimed one-man show Latin History for Morons. Featuring a fusion of bolero, hip hop, merengue and rap, Kiss My Aztec! celebrates, elevates and commemorates Latinx culture in an uproarious new musical.


When: September 4 – October 6, 2019
With the glorious music of Mozart as a backdrop, Peter Shaffer’s AMADEUS assures North Coast Repertory Theatre of a grand start to Season 38. The Tony winner for Best Play weaves the fascinating tale of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Told in a series of flashbacks laced with humor, intrigue and personal insight, AMADEUS examines two men – one consumed with jealousy; the other, blissfully unaware of his extraordinary gifts. Deemed “terrifically entertaining and highly theatrical” by The New York Times, this audience favorite deftly explores musical genius by a master playwright.
