THEATER REVIEW: “Grease”

“Grease,” the sock-hop musical about the ’50s, has undergone many changes since its 1971 opening. Songs have been deleted and added, much of the original raunch is customarily deleted, even themes have changed.

But those kids haven’t changed much. They’re still interested in cars, cliques, cigs and – let’s face it – sex.

The latest “Grease” incarnation, directed and choreographed by Ray Limon, plays through July 27 at Welk Theatre San Diego.

THEATER REVIEW: “Happy Days”

When we finally had to take my aged father’s car away from him because he could no longer drive safely, he told me sadly, “My world has shrunk to the size of a toothpick.”

Winnie (Dana Hooley) would empathize: she is buried up to her waist in scorched earth, able to move only her arms, yet she greets the morning with a determinedly cheerful “Another heavenly day.”

Sledgehammer_, the newly regrouped Sledgehammer Theatre, presents Samuel Beckett’s “Happy Days” through June 8 at downtown’s Tenth Avenue Arts Center. Scott Feldsher directs.
