If you are in San Diego, or thinking about a trip to San Diego, now is the time! Don’t miss the Old Globe-commissioned world premiere of ‘Under a Baseball Sky’ that was workshopped at CNPF June 2022!
By José Cruz González
Directed by James Vásquez
From José Cruz González, author of American Mariachi, comes a Globe-commissioned story about baseball’s deep roots in the Mexican American community. When troublemaker Teo is put to work cleaning up a vacant lot belonging to his elderly neighbor, this unlikely pair forms a bond forged in history and America’s pastime. Inspired by San Diego’s Logan Heights neighborhood, and directed by Globe Resident Artist James Vásquez, this beguiling world premiere celebrates communities and individuals coming together to find hope, healing, love, and the occasional home run.
Under a Baseball Sky is supported by major production sponsors Hal and Pam Fuson, Sheryl and Harvey White, and Entravision and artist sponsors Philip and Margarita Wilkinson (for playwright José Cruz González).
José Cruz González’s Under a Baseball Sky was commissioned by the Old Globe and underwritten by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
