News Listing

Our upcoming production at San Diego REP is A Paris Love Story, featuring the music of the great French composer, Claude Debussy. I was to bring you my beloved city of Paris and the story of its music this May, but in order to protect us all, we must postpone our Paris Love Story at San Diego REP to the upcoming November, when we will be able to share in the magic of this city and its music in a safe and healthy environment. If you have your seats already, those seats will be waiting for you in November; you'll be getting an email from San Diego REP with your new date and time soon. If you don’t, I hope to see you join us.

I write to you with deep wishes for your safety and health in these unprecedented times. The staff of San Diego REP are mostly working remotely, observing safe distancing recommendations. All of us are very busy working on the future. There is nothing we wish more than to see you in the seats, our actors on the stage, and the stories that enrich our lives being told and shared. I have always said that there is no San Diego REP without the meeting of audience and artists. The day that we can all meet again will be a day I will never forget.

A Fond Farewell from the House of Joy 

San Diego REP's production of Madhuri Shekar's play, House of Joy, was something truly special. Although it had to close the day after it's opening night performance due to COVID-19 precautions, we didn't want to let it go before giving you an inside look at the heart of what made this production great. Meet the cast as they reflect on their experiences and the impact the play has had on them.

In light of the recent communications from Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health regarding COVID 19, San Diego Repertory Theatre will be canceling all remaining performances of its production of House of Joy, and all public activities until March 31st, 2020. We are currently in the process of contacting our patrons regarding their ticket options.
 
We will continue to monitor the situation closely for activities beyond the month of March. We are saddened that we will not be able to share this wonderful production live with more audience members, but we feel this is the best decision to ensure the health and safety of our patrons, staff, performers and volunteers.
 
Regards,
 
San Diego REP Leadership
