"Oye Gente!" Oedipus El Rey is now Playing at the San Diego Rep
Date nights with hubby are few and far between now-a-days. With all the kids activities, work commitments, and family events, it's hard to find time for some fun!
This past weekend, hubby and I braved the St. Patrick's Day crowds in downtown to have a night out. We had dinner at Zymology 21 to redeem of Instagram Valetines Day competition winnings of a complimentary dinner for two! Yay!

The press release I received before the play did warn: “Oedipus El Rey” contains adult themes, violence, language and nudity. The story of Oedipus with a contemporary Latino twist already had us curious, but I have to admit I wasn't really prepared for the completely nude, few minutes long, sex scene between Oedipus and his mother. Third row seats during that scene was "aca-awkward"! It did, though, add an intensity to the relationship between the two for the remainder of the play.
"Oedipus El Rey" runs from March 7 to March 29. Performances are Tuesday (first week only) at 7 p.m., Wednesdays at 7 p.m., Thursdays at 8 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., and Saturdays at 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
