Thanks to Michael Robertson for making the FOG Behind the Scenes tour of the Old Globe a big success. We walked through the main theatre, designed after Shakespeare's original in London, under the stage, into costume and prop shops and behind the curtains on the main stage.
We visited the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, a theatre in the round and watched the installation of the sets for the latest production. Beginning in mid July you can see Crime and Punishment: A Comedy there.
The third theatre in the complex is the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, set outdoors among the trees of Balboa Park. It was built as a temporary venue (because "The Show Must Go On") when fire destroyed the main theatre in the 1980s. It's design and setting were so popular that it was kept as an addition to the complex and has features two Shakespeare offerings a year. Twelfth Night is the current production. (July 23)
Our organization began when our two founding members met through an ad one of them had placed in a local newspaper, looking for like-minded gay men over 40 who wanted to “socialize and pursue educational, entertainment and cultural interests”. The first meeting took place on September 7, 1993 with 10 people in attendance and we now number around 200 members. Learn more on our About page.
We cordially invite all gentlemen who would like to have a chance to socialize, engage in one or more of our many monthly activities and gain new friends, to join us. You would be most welcome, indeed.
Can we help you find something?
