Rubicon Theatre Company, Ventura County’s leading not-for-profit theatrical organization committed to entertaining, engaging and enriching the community through live performance, is thrilled to unveil its highly anticipated 25th Anniversary “Silver Season” in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District, entitled “Truly Yours.”
According to Board President Doug Halter, also a member of Ventura’s City Council, “For 25 years, Rubicon has been an integral part of Ventura’s cultural life, and now is preparing to usher in an unparalleled season, one that will both honor its legacy and reaffirm its commitment to delivering exceptional theatre experiences to the Ventura community.”
Rubicon’s milestone season kicks off in October with the West Coast Premiere of The Lifespan Of A Fact, based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal which was named “Best of the Year” by the Huffington Post. This fast-paced, thought-provoking play explores the narrow line between fact and fiction. The show had a successful run on Broadway in 2019 with Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter”). During the holidays, audiences will enjoy the Drama Desk Award-Winning musical revue The World Goes ‘Round, an exuberant celebration of the songs of John Kander and Fred Ebb, the creators of Broadway hits like Chicago and Cabaret. In February, the season continues with Eisenhower: This Piece Of Ground starring Tony Award-Winner John Rubinstein, and directed by Richard Ellenstein. Fresh from Off-Broadway, this timely masterpiece tells the story of the “simple country boy” who became our 34th President. Rubicon’s fourth production, opening in the spring of 2024, is the World Premiere run of “A” TRAIN. Directed by Risa Brainin, “A” Train is a funny, surprising and insightful story about one mom’s journey on the autism train. The production stars Broadway veteran Annie Torsiglieri (Top Girls, Parade and Miss Saigon). The TRULY YOURS Season closes in September of 2024 with the Tony Award-Winning musical ONCE, book by Enda Walsh and music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. Set in Ireland, the story follows a street busker who rediscovers his passion for music and his faith in love. The production includes songs from the critically acclaimed film, including the Academy Award-winning song “Falling Slowly.”
