Leaming’s one-man “This Wonderful Life” plays through Dec. 28 at North Coast Repertory Theatre, and I’d advise you not to miss this charming and heartwarming show.

A young and talented violinist makes a Faustian bargain in a bid for fame, money and respect in Clifford Odets’ 1937 “Golden Boy,” in a fine student production through Dec. 13 at La Jolla Playhouse’s Potiker Theatre.

THEATER REVIEW: “The Second City’s Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue”

The recurring minor-key “Deck the Hall” theme is a clue. Not that the show will be a downer, but that this holiday revue may not be a, shall we say, typical Christmas show.

But if you’re looking for something a little different, “The Second City’s Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue” fills the bill with its trademark blend of sketch comedy, improv and audience participation.
