THE OLD GLOBE
San Diego, CA - Fall 2011
A World Premiere play from Old Globe Playwright-in-Residence Matthew Lopez, whose The Whipping Man was a smash hit at the Globe and then New York. Lopez’s poignant new play is about one family’s attempt to make its fantasy a reality. Gorgeous dance sequences are woven throughout the play and help to tell the story of Inez Candelaria and her three children’s dream of a life in show business. With their building scheduled for demolition and their life together beginning to crumble, the filming of the movie of West Side Story on the streets of their soon to be abandoned neighborhood finally brings reality into focus.
