5:00 PM Exploring Ethics—Technology Assisting Diplomacy Eric Frost, Viz Center, San Diego State University, directs the SDSU Viz Center and the Homeland Security Graduate Program. Frost and co-workers focus their educational and research efforts on disaster response worldwide and seeking ways to help governments, organizations, and responders with the goals of saving lives, reducing damage, as well as rebuilding after disasters.

He will discuss "Diplomacy" and "ethics" and describe the complex interactions that are aspects of nation-to-nation relationships like that of the US and Mexico as well as with other countries such as US-Somalia and US-Kenya. Technology and the sciences play into this complexity as tools, though often used very differently depending on the worldview of leaders and nations and individuals.

7:00 PM Stage: Red Velvet The Old Globe stages "Red Velvet," a stirring drama that transports audiences to the turbulent backstage world of London's Theatre Royal in the early 1800s.

Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, can't go on tonight as Othello, and his company is in disarray. A young American actor named Ira Aldridge arrives to step into the role—but no black man has ever played Othello on the English stage.

His groundbreaking performance upends stage tradition and changes the lives of everyone involved.

Lolita Chakrabarti's multi-award-winning play uncovers the fascinating true story of a pivotal figure in theater history. Visionary director Rachel Chavkin returns to The Old Globe with a stunningly theatrical production of a play that the London Telegraph called "informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking."

Admission/Cost: $34 - $98

7:00 PM Stage: Into The Beautiful North San Diego Repertory Theatre closes its 2017/18 season with "Into the Beautiful North," a world premiere written by Karen Zacarías and directed by San Diego REP Artistic Director Sam Woodhouse.

All the men of the sleepy Mexican village of Tres Camarones have left town in search of fortune in the USA. One night, 19-year-old Nayeli watches "The Magnificent Seven" at the local cinema and has a flash of inspiration. She grabs her goth best friend Vampi and her gay confidant Tacho, and sets out on a quest of epic proportions - to find men in the USA and smuggle them back across the border to repopulate and protect her beloved town! And so begins a 1,000 mile road trip from the Pacific Coast of Mexico through the colorful streets of Tijuana to the climactic scene at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay
San Diego CA.

Admission/Cost: $38 - $65

Location:
Lyceum Theatre
