Past Shows

  • Dirty Little Secrets


    Lyceum Stage

    Jai Rodriguez’ “Dirty Little Secrets” is being performed for one night only on August 20th at 7:00pm presented by San Diego REPertory Theatre. Jai Rodriguez (Rent, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) stars in “an R-rated cabaret of songs, stories and dancing revealing his life, lusts, loves and lessons learned” continues Jai “It’s an evening that’s half singing and dancing and half stand up that shows that sometimes, the road to our own personal truth is through our most shame-filled moments.” The Miami Herald says “Yet for all of its dramatic and sometimes-sobering shadings, Dirty Little Secrets is upbeat, empowering and entertaining. In large part, that’s because of Rodriguez’s warm stage presence and the songs he and the others sing, a mixture of meaningful show tunes and pop hits.” Jai is also currently starring as Usnavi in “In The Heights” at San Diego Repertory Theatre Now through August 25th. 
    Jai Rodriguez is an Emmy Award-winning television host and actor. Rodriguez began is career at age 18 when he was cast in the role of "Angel" in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical “RENT.” Most recognized for his role in Bravo’s culturally groundbreaking series “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy,” Rodriguez stood-out on the series as the “Culture Vulture,” a youthful and savvy addition to the show’s already dynamic cast. Jai recently returned to primetime on ABC’s “Malibu Country”, other television credits include over the years, he has worked regularly as an authority in culture and style with extensive hosting credits, including: “Styleyes Miami” (SiTv), two consecutive seasons of “Groomer Has It” (Animal Planet), and “Model Latina” (SiTv). As an actor, Rodriguez has appeared on numerous shows, including: LOGO’S “Rick and Steve,” “Nip/Tuck,” “How I Met Your Mother,” as a chilling murderer in “Bones,” heartthrob Mateo on  “Days of Our Lives,” and “GIGANTIC” (TeenNick); however, it was his 2011 tear-jerking performance as transgender "Amanda Knott" on “Harry's Law” that showcased his extraordinary talent as an actor.
    Rodriguez is the only male actor who after rising to stardom on a reality TV show has successfully transitioned to a series regular role on a primetime series, “Malibu Country” (ABC). Actors who share the accomplishment include: Jennifer Hudson, Katherine McPhee and NeNe Leakes.

  • Venus In Fur


    November 09 - December 08 2013
    Lyceum Space

    Get ready for a wild night of theatre.

    This Broadway smash and Tony Award® Best Play nominee begins innocently enough: a young actress is auditioning before ademanding playwright/director for the role of a lifetime. But soon the tale takes a darker, edgy turn as we learn the play is based on the 1870 erotic novella Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (Mr. Masochism himself). When these two emotionally-charged artists get wrapped up in an ultimate test of wills, it’s man versus woman, director versus actress, and writer versus muse...all with a little leather and lace mixed in.

    In the Dominican Republic in the mid-20th century, Generalisimo Rafael Trujillo (El Jefe) ruled his tiny but strategic country with the brutal extravagance of a modern day Napoleon. Nothing threatened his fantasy of unlimited power - nothing except a secret underground movement, at the center of which were four sisters known by the code name butterflies. The gently blooming but unstoppable resistance against the dictator by Patria, Dedé, Minerva, and María Teresa inspired novelist Julia Alvarez to write the best-selling book, In the Time of the Butterflies.
