A Psychedelic Journey to Enlightenment
Warren David Keith in ‘Be Here Now, The Journey of Ram Dass’ at the Vantage Theatre
San Diego International Fringe Festival
Vantage Theatre is offering two productions in July as part of the San Diego International Fringe Festival.
The productions will be performed July 23-31at Swedenborg Hall, 1531 Tyler St., North Park.
“Be Here Now The Journey of Ram Dass” by Lynne Kaufman. A psychedelic journey to enlightenment with Ram Dass (aka, Richard Alpert, who, with Timothy Leary, was kicked out of Harvard for LSD experiments.)
After that glimpse behind the curtain of life, Richard Alpert traveled to India, studied intensively with his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and was given the name Ram Dass, which means Servant of God. He came back and wrote the definitive book “Be Here Now” and became the spiritual father of the ’60s.
Vantage Theatre is once again taking San Diego audiences on an enlightened journey presenting Warren David Keith in this critically acclaimed play.
“So Small A Thing” by Dominique Salerno is a new, modern take on the ancient story of Jason and Medea. Trapped in a stuck elevator in the afterlife, this mythic couple grapples with issues of love, sex and loyalty, that still resonate in today’s modern world. This brand new play is full of humor, wit, and passion. Starring San Diego Rep’s very own John Anderson and the glamorous, sexy, yoga flexible, .Jennie Olson Six. It’s sure to be a Fringe Festival favorite.
