Editors Note

Dear Readers ... we are pleased to introduce our newest writer-interviewer David Dixon (below) .....
      David Dixon

A fan of film and theatre, from a very young age, David Dixon wrote reviews for the San Diego Union Tribune Column (Rated G), and In high school, David authored articles and columns for the SCPA school newspaper, The Production.  He was the Entertainment Editor for San Diego State’s college newspaper, The Daily Aztec, and is currently a Film PR Intern for Allied Integrated Marketing, a contributor to San Diego, a contributor to San Diego Community News Network, and a guest writer for the San Diego Reader.  

As a writer for TDA, David won First and Second Place for College Media Reviews (2014), and First and Third Place (2013) for College Criticism from The San Diego Press Club in Excellence Awards.  For the SDTR, David will be principally an 'interviewer' - with perhaps, expanding into a review commentator in the near  future.

Now, how about a quick look at the upcoming show productions in our nearby theatre communities ...?

One of the most  unique theatre-going experiences found anywhere, is Moonlight's LAWN SEATING - allowing patrons to bring their own picnic suppers into the theatre, and picnicking before the show.  Lawn ticket holders, receive a 'chair' as part of their ticket - upon entry to the theatre.
 "76 Trombones" in THE MUSIC MAN

Moonlight Stage Productions, presents "THE MUSIC MAN", a classic - that is as American as apple pie.  The show follows fast-talking traveling salesman HAROLD HILL, as he 'cons' the people of River City, Iowa - into buying instruments and uniforms, for a boy's band that he will lead.  The catch is, he doesn't know the difference between a 'trombone' and a 'treble clef'.  However, before he can skip town, the town librarian MARIAN, steals HILL's heart - and transforms him into a respectable citizen.  THE MUSIC MAN, is family entertainment at its very best - and runs July 15th through August 1st, under the stars at the Moonlight Amphitheatre, in Vista, California.  All performances begin at 8pm - for additional information, call (760) 724-2110, or visit

Or ... you can try nearby Solana Beach, to attend their North Coast REPertory Theatre, to see ...
Revel in the sophistication, wit, insight, heart and genius. of Broadway's most innovative and influential artist, composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, along with Leonard Bernstein, Mary Rodgers, Richard Rodgers and Jule Styne - with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, - and directed by David Ellenstein - you'll hear familiar favorites from such shows as COMPANY, FOLLIES, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, WEST SIDE STORY, GYPSY ... and, so many more.  An unmatched evening of enchantment for musical theatre fans!  For further information, contact the North Coast REPertory Theatre, at (858) 481-1055.
"The sparkling sophistication and elegance of Mr. Sondheim - in the world of American musicals, makes him indisputably the best, brightest and most influential talent, to emerge during the last half-century."
- The New York Times.

Featuring the songs of NEAL SEDAKA - set at a Catskills resort, in 1960 - "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" is the sweetly comic story of MARGE - who has just been left at the altar, with a non-refundable honeymoon package - looking over her head.  After a bit of encouragement by free-spirited gal-pal LOIS ... MARGE takes LOIS on her "honeymoon".  Now, will the hunky lead singer, bring MARGE out of her 'funk' ...?  The score showcases some 18 Neil Sedaka classics - including "Where The Boys Are" ... "Sweet Sixteen" ... "Calendar Girl" ... "Love Will Keep Us Together" ... and of course, the chart-topping title song!

Returning back to San Diego, we have our old Fine Arts Gallery friend Noel Baza, in a "pop-up" in  Balboa Park.

New works in the Fine Arts Gallery, by a variety of artists!  As part of the Balboa Park Centennial Celebration - they've opened up a Sales Gallery - within the SD History Center.  The Gallery is focused on the contemporary landscape, as interpreted by a great selection of San Diego artists.  We're all excited to see this Celebration arrive - and know that if you come to visit Noel Baza at the History Center - you won't be disappointed! 
Under their "Pop-Up" at the SD History Center, in Balboa Park, Noel Baza's exhibition "Under The Same Sky" - celebrates the tradition of San Diego landscape art - with a look at what our artists today are creating!
