SD REP: FOR THE RECORD...

By Caley Hernandez and Eva Anderson

 

August 5, 2019 (San Diego) - San Diego Repertory Theatre brings 33 ⅓ House of Dreams to the stage at the Lyceum Theatre downtown this August and promises a fun show filled with music and history.  

 

Before the performance begins, you have a chance to explore the lobby and read the history of David Gold and Stan Ross of Gold Star Recording Studios and even participate in some trivia!  Of note, the show is the brainchild of Ross’ son, San Carlos dentist Brad Ross, and La Mesa teacher/psychologist Jonathan Rosenberg, as ECM previously reported.)

33 1/3 HOUSE OF DREAMS: A PIECE OF MUSICAL HISTORY

By Mimi Pollack

July 19, 2019 (La Mesa) - There is nothing better than to see a labor of love come to its fruition.  After six incarnations, the musical play, 33 1/3 House of Dreams, will be presented at the SD REP during the month of August. It is a “dream come true” for Jonathan Rosenberg and Dr. Brad Ross. The history ofhow this play came about is also interesting.

 

It all started at the dentist’s office. Since 1989, San Carlos dentist, Dr. Brad Ross, has been and continues to beJonathan Rosenberg’s dentist. For many years, they shared a cordial professional relationship. Ross knew that Rosenberg was a special education teacher/psychologist in La Mesa, but it took some years for him to discover that Rosenberg was also a musician and music historian.
