Foodie Drama 

Wednesday, Jul 29 2009
Four courses is too much, unless one of them is ... coffee? At "Theater You Can Eat," The People's Theatre company invades a Bolivian/raw food restaurant, and presents a slate of comedies about the effects of comestibles on human life. The first, Wake Up Cup, honestly sounds like a common nightmare: Something happens, you can't get your first cup of coffee in the morning, and then some yutz breaks all the rules of civility that bind you to nonviolence by speaking to you. Is it not one of the great questions of our times, whether it's acceptable to commit mayhem in this situation? The new local company breezes through this and three other playlets — their themes are salad, ceviche, and chocolate, the other three food groups — while you eat your fried plantains, sautéed beef, and/or raw tacos. Bon appétit! "Theater You Can Eat" starts previews this evening; opening night is Aug. 7.
July 31-Sept. 6, 6 p.m., 2009

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
