BY MANNY LOPEZ | VILLAGE NEWS ony Award-winning director Des McAnuff has returned to the La Jolla Playhouse (LJP) with a new, avant-garde rock musical called “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots,” running through Dec. 16. Based on music and lyrics by alternative-punkpsychedelic-pop-rock band The Flaming Lips, McAnuff tells a technology-charged tale about life and how sometimes one friend believing in another makes all the difference in someone’s life, no matter how impossible the odds may seem. “This show unfolds as if you were watching an artist do a painting,” said Linda Cooper, production manager for the LJP. “It really is an emotional journey that you go on through the music, lyrics and visuals.” McAnuff, director emeritus at the LJP, has created a dramatic piece that simultaneously takes place in the modern world and on a science fiction landscape. His one-of-a-kind spectacle features singing, dancing, computerized projections, illuminated robot costumes, automated set changes, martial arts, puppets, actors flying across the stage and a 14-foot robot named 3000-21. Actress Kimiko Glenn plays Yoshimi Yasukawa, a young visual artist diagnosed with lymphoma, who finds herself entangled in a love triangle between her eccentric ex, Ben Nickel (played by Paul Nolan) and Booker, her hedgefund manager boyfriend (named after Flaming Lips’ manager Scott Booker and played by Nik Walker). Ben wins Yoshimi back, and in the course of doing so, steps into an alternative reality where pink robots serve as an allegory for Yoshimi’s cancer. It is his belief in her ability to battle the pink robots that Yoshimi draws the strength to combat her illness. The answer to how the story ends can be found in the Flaming Lips lyrics to the song for which the production is entitled. “It’s unusual when you think about it in the context of musical theater, where songs so often have to move the plot forward,” said Tom Hewitt, who described his character, Dr. Peterson, as the medical reality in the middle of a robot fantasy. “I think the director and the writers have been very clever in crafting the story


After years of debate and delays, San Diego City Council’s Land Use and Housing (LU&H) Committee unanimously endorsed a proposed two-year pilot program along city beaches toughening enforcement of existing regulations banning oversize vehicles from parking longer than 72 hours on public streets. The committee’s Nov. 28 recommendation on the neighborhood parking protection ordinance, proposed by District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, will be forwarded to the City Council for final approval. “The proliferation of illegally parked oversize vehicles on city streets is a public safety, quality of life and environmental issue that has acute impact on San Diego’s visitor-serving beach and bay communities,” said Faulconer. “Constituents report vehicles parked illegally in front of homes and businesses for weeks — or even months — at a time, taking up valuable parking spaces, blocking view corridors and limiting access to driveways and alleys. This is an appropriate time to revisit an ordinance that provides more effective tools for the city to address illegally parked oversize vehicles.” The proposed ordinance requires drivers of RVs and large trucks, as well as vehicles towing boats, to obtain per-

QuickHits Children’s Pool tower to get holiday sparkle around the Lips’ lyrics, which have a sort of universal theme.” Formed in 1983, the Oklahoma City-based Flaming Lips are known for their art-rock experiments and theatrical concerts (they once staged a concert in a parking lot using the tape decks of cars and boom boxes as instruments). In 1997, they released “Zaireeka,” a SEE YOSHIMI, Page 5

There’s still time! “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” runs through Dec. 16.

To celebrate the heroes of La Jolla who keep its beaches safe, the community is giving back in a spirited way — by lighting up the lifeguard tower at Children’s Pool beach. Throughout the week until Dec. 15, volunteer lifeguards will decorate the tower with twinkling lights, which can be donated by members of the community at Meanley & Son Ace Hardware, located at 7756

mits available online to park overnight in beach and bay neighborhoods. The proposed program implementing the new oversize-vehicle ordinance mandates four parking enforcement officers to watch for vehicles at least 22 feet long or 7 feet high. The ordinance would allow officers to issue citations immediately, without directly confronting vehicle occupants, if vehicle-parking permits are not visible. Councilmen Todd Gloria and David Alvarez, representing districts 8 and 3, respectively, expressed concern the pilot program would only affect beach areas, noting the problem exists inland as well. Both, however, sided with the committee majority in favoring the ordinance after being told by Matt Awbrey, Faulconer’s deputy chief of staff, that San Diego police favored restricting the pilot program to beaches only initially due to significant additional costs involved with providing signage, enforcement personnel and public outreach to expand it citywide. “The neighborhood parking protection ordinance is meant to be costrecoverable,” said Awbrey, adding it could be expanded citywide later if the two-year trial period is successful. LU&H Committee chairwoman and District 5 Councilwoman Lorie Zapf attached an additional condition to the SEE VEHICLES, Page 5 Girard Ave., or at the lifeguard tower itself, located on Coast Boulevard across from Casa de Manana. The public is invited to the lighting ceremony on Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. at Shell Beach above the lifeguard tower. Organizers are seeking carolers and hot cocoa for the event. Anyone who wishes to donate hot drinks or singing talents can contact Ed Harris at Lifeguards are also collecting toys for Toys for Tots, which can be donated at the lighting ceremony or at any lifeguard tower along San SEE BRIEFS, Page 3

Birch Aquarium has the cure for families’ winter-break boredom

BEYONDlimits JOH N NY MCDONALD Birch Aquarium at Scripps is swirling with an assortment of field trips and lectures this winter that encourages exploration, knowledge and adventure. Discover the SEA The aquarium’s Science, Exploration and Adventure program, SEA Days, will feature multigenerational learning about cutting-edge research taking place at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), focusing on current ocean topics with hands-on experiences, key activities and a chance to interact with scientists. It also provides an ideal venue for students, Scouts and others to meet requirements for “Interview a Scientist” or career-day projects. Programs are included with aquarium admission and take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. The next program in the series picks up on Dec. 15 with “Whale of a Tail,” where participants are invited to watch for the gray whale migration from the aquarium’s Tide-Pool Plaza and learn all about whales from SIO scientists. Then, on Jan. 19, come face to face with animals that live in the La Jolla Ecological Reserve and learn about underwater treasures at the fourth annual Underwater Parks Day. Finally, Feb. 16’s “Plankton Party” will answer the question, “What do algae, crabs and jellies have in common?” The answer: plankton. All of these ocean-dwelling organisms spend a portion or their entire live as plankton. SIO scientists will give the rundown on these “drifters.” Getting a closer look Daily whale-watching cruises featuring aquarium naturalists pick back up for the season toward the end of this month. Guests can get up close to a migrating gray whale or even take an expedition to Baja California to witness the breeding of the 20,000 mammals that take this annual 10,000-mile roundtrip journey from the Bering Sea. Daily whale-watching cruises run from Dec. 26 through April 14.

continent and ocean. Taking place Dec. 10, Jan. 14 and Feb. 11, the lectures are intended for a lay audience. • On Dec. 10, the series presents “Exploring Beyond the Abyss: The Deep Sea Challenge Expedition” with Scripps scientist Doug Bartlett describing his experiences as the chief scientist on the Deep Sea Challenge Expedition. Led by film director and National Geographic explorer-in-residence James Cameron, the expedition conducted submersible operations in the Mariana Trench, the deepest place on earth, and Bartlett’s research will shed light on how organisms thrive in such extreme environments. • Guests can join Scripps geochemist James Day on Jan. 14 for “New Insights into the Early History of the Earth and Moon,” which will delve into new insights into the moon’s chemical makeup by examining lunar rocks gathered by Apollo mission astronauts. Advances in technology are offering fresh clues about how the early earth and moon may have formed and evolved. • “Genetics and Gray Whale Behavior” will be the discussion on Feb. 11, presented by Aimee Lang, Southwest Fisheries Science Center marine biologist. Lang and her colleagues are using genetic analyses of gray whales to explore their behavior, migrations and other information critical for managing the gray whale population in the North Pacific. Past lectures have aired on UCSD-TV and are broadcast to more than 16 million viewers via satellite and cable television. Lectures also can be found on YouTube. Lectures run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and are $8 ($5 for students and educators, free for members).

A recently released song, which was created for iPhone-type devices, allows the audience to become the orchestra, with 12 distinct tracks that can be played simultaneously on multiple devices. Hewitt called it a “brave move” on the part of McAnuff, who he said loves the technical aspect of the theater and has become famous for it. McAnuff has directed musicals such as “Big River,” “The Who’s Tommy,” “Jersey Boys” and the new revival of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” “This is the most technically challenging production that’s ever been staged at the La Jolla Playhouse in the eight years I’ve been here,” said Cooper, who added that the challenge for McAnuff was in find-


new proposed ordinance calling for it to include boats and trailers. “Clearly, a lot of the problem is boats and trailers — they’re just a hazard,” said Zapf. “A lot of our public right-ofway is being used and abused, almost to the point of there being free storage on our public streets.” A number of beachfront residents, most from Pacific and Mission beaches, testified at the LU&H hearing about safety, environmental and crime hazards — as well as obstruction of public views — posed by illegally parked oversize vehicles in their neighborhoods. “Thomas Edison once said, ‘There’s a better way to do everything — find it,’ ” said Pacific Beach resident Louis F.

ing a balance between doing what needed to be done technically, while not allowing the technology to overwhelm the actual story. “Des was guiding that ship and I think we did it.” Cooper said that there is so much wireless activity going on during the performance, audience members are asked to turn off their cell phones to avoid the chance of any interference with the signals and technology on stage. “Des has done a wonderful job of creating a production that serves this music so well and makes it accessible to more people who maybe wouldn’t listen to the Lips,” Cooper said. “It’s music that’s relatable and it’s a story that you can really hang on to.” Tickets to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots are available online at or by calling The Playhouse Box Office at (858) 550-1010.

Cumming, who petitioned the LU&H committee to support the new ordinance. “This could be the theme of today’s meeting.” Cumming testified the ordinance, as proposed, doesn’t go far enough in defining — and restricting — oversize vehicles. “This ordinance should include all non-motorized vehicles including trailers, campers, boats, dune buggies, ATVs and jet skis,” he said. La Jolla community planner Joe LaCava endorsed Faulconer’s proposal. “The key is that it’s really a problem in the beach areas,” LaCava said. “Let’s test it there, and not get caught up in a citywide proposal. Let’s get this buttoned down, see how it works, then go from there.” Mark Underhill, a software business owner, longtime Mission Beach resident and RV owner, testified against



Helping those who help the community In light of the holiday spirit of giving, local organizations and businesses are pitching in to help those who keep the community safe every day. On Nov. 4, two beach-area groups presented SDPD Northern Division Capt. Brian Ahearn with a total of $1,500 in donations to help fund much-needed repairs for the Pacific Beach police substation, which has been in a state of disrepair for many years. “We never get to give back to the men and women who keep us safe,” said La Jolla Town Council trustee and Rotarian Nancy Gardner, who spearheaded the project. “They’re always giving to us, and we should always be thanking them. How can you thank enough the men and women who keep us safe on a daily basis? The things I’ve seen them do are amazing.”

certain provisions of the proposed oversize-vehicle ordinance. His family, he said, goes on frequent trips out of town, and the proposal could pose problems for RV owners who travel like him. The 72-hour time limit on permits, he argued, could unreasonably limit the number of trips responsible RV users like himself could take. “If I’m gone for five days I would have to apply for two permits, which is limiting because I’m only allowed 24 a year,” Underhill said. District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner expressed concern that sufficient notice hadn’t been issued prior to the LU&H Committee hearing to RV owners and related groups given that the hearing closely followed the Thanksgiving holiday, when many RV residents might travel. The issue of an ordinance restricting oversize vehicles on city streets has

been discussed since December 2004 when it was first heard at LU&H. In 2008, a pilot program and citywide ordinance were brought before the City Council for consideration, but the item was tabled and never voted on

due to city budgetary constraints. The cities of Encinitas, Del Mar, Coronado, El Cajon and the Unified Port of San Diego all have existing ordinances in place regulating parking of oversize vehicles.

After a terrible experience at another tuxedo shop, we decided to give A Better Deal a try. I am SO happy we did! Not only was the experience far better than where we had been, but the quality of tuxedos are fantastic, and they ended up being cheaper for his groomsmen to rent! Score! We also had a hiccup and had to push back the wedding after we went in for our first appointment.

CONTINUED FROM Page 3 Dec. 14. Founded in 1995, Coastkeeper has been gathering its data since 2000 and has just signed its 700th volunteer. The group’s 2011 watershed report, its first, noted that 85 recruits collected samples reflecting the health of nine watersheds for 2009-10 from the Tijuana River site to just south of Fallbrook. The majority of the watersheds’ health readings fell into the “fair” category. No county watershed scored in the “marginal” or “excellent” ranges. While these data may not always augur well, the solutions do — and Pritchard said the volunteers play a vital role to that end for one very important reason. “Water-quality professionals,” Pritchard said, “are terrible at getting their data out to the public. I know what you mean about the [colossally thick] reports from places like the [California] Coastal Commission and the EPA. [The volunteers] make the collection process faster from our end and not adding to the backlog. They understand our way of using data to tell a story … We are extremely grateful for them.” Meanwhile, Pritchard said, he can’t overemphasize the slow but sure impact that development and farming can have on a waterway through the depletion of soils and plants. “One slab of concrete [or] the loss of crops,” he said, “diverts the natural flow so the waterway will die a death of a thousand cuts.” But the volunteers put a human face on the sea of numbers that results, quietly assuring that help is on its way.

Top-seeded Dina McBride of Valencia erased the memory of last year’s final as she defeated Ros Nideffer of San Diego, 7-5, 6-2, to win the women’s singles title at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. McBride, a former collegiate tennis star at the University of San Diego, reached the women’s singles final a year ago, but had to retire early in the match as she suffered a torn Achilles tendon. Despite playing only one set of singles during her recovery this past year, McBride entered the tournament and made an incredible run to the title. McBride trailed Nideffer 4-5 as she served to stay in the first set. After holding serve to tie the score at 5-5, the 52-year-old Nideffer, a former touring tennis professional, opened the 11th game with a doubles fault and four points later, McBride broke serve to lead 6-5. McBride served out the set as she fought off a break point and won a hard-fought 14point game. She then jumped out to a 4-1 second-set lead and served out the match at 5-2 to win the title.

UTC shines with new tantalizing temptations BY MARC & DARLYNNE MENKIN VILLAGE NEWS

For most people, the holiday season is a busy time of the year. From office parties to the ever-growing shopping list, it never seems to end. It’s also a time when friends and families get together, so the social calendar is booked to the hilt. The good news? There are lots of unique things happening, so it’s a wonderful time to explore what’s new in your backyard. At the newly renovated Westfield UTC, there are two places you’ll want to add to your “must see” list. We wanted to see firsthand what the new changes looked

like, so we turned it into an all-day adventure. Our first stop was to indulge our hunger pangs, so we headed over to Seasons 52, a popular, new-to-San Diego restaurant concept that specializes in fresh, low-calorie options for lunch and dinner. The expansive menu changes four times a year and nothing is more than 475 calories, from the custom flatbreads to the mouth-watering entrees like the cedar plank roasted salmon and caramelized sea scallops. This restaurant is a real treat for people who appreciate flavorful foods but don’t want to feel guilty afterward. One of

our favorites was the organic salmon with fresh farmers market vegetables. The Sonoma goat cheese ravioli and the mesquite-grilled Piedmontese strip steak were also delightful. If you have a sweet tooth like us, you’ll be happy to know that the 475-calorie rule also extends to its award-winning mini indulgence desserts, which come in almost any flavor you can think of, including key lime pie, carrot cake, pecan pie (our favorite!) and chocolate peanut butter Courtesy photos mousse. The desserts are small in beware — they are deliciously decaportion and served in a shot-size dent and filling! glass so they look harmless but As for the restaurant’s ambiance, we found it to be warm and inviting, Left, ArcLight Cinemas casual but classy. The interior’s earthy brought its ultra-chic movietones, rich-wood accents and soft going experience to La Jolla with the overhaul of Westfield lighting add to its unique appeal. We UTC. The theater’s amenities especially liked its private dining include stadium seating in room, which is perfect for corporate black-box theaters, reserved groups looking for private space, and seating. 21-and-up screenings the outdoor dining area, which is — and a full bar to quench guests’ thirst.

MUST SEE To ready film lovers for San Diego’s 23rd annual Jewish Film Festival, the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center will host guest filmmaker James L. Freedman, creator of “Glickman,” the story of Jewish sports legend Marty Glickman and his trials overcoming bigotry and revolutionizing sports. On Dec. 11, the story of Glickman’s life — from being benched in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games to placate Hitler to becoming the voice of modern basketball broadcasting — will air at the community center’s David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre at 7 p.m., immediately followed by a discussion with Freedman. Tickets to the screening and discussion are $13.75. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call (858) 362-1348. The Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center is located at 4126 Executive Drive.

Hot pick!

M U ST San Diego’s one-and-only opera singing chef, Elizabeth Podsiadlo, will kick off the holidays in La Jolla with “Songs of the Sea & Carols of the Season” at the La Jolla Community Center Dec. 15. The festivities begin at 6 p.m. with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, in addition to a cooking demonstration by Podsiadlo, who will create her flavorful beggar’s fish soup complete with potatoes, tomatoes, rosemary and fish. Following the cocktail hour, the chef will perform alongside baritone Patrick Andersen, pianist John Danke and several of their caroling friends. Tickets to the holiday program are $20 for members and $30 for nonmembers. All proceeds from the event will benefit the La Jolla Community Center, located at 6811 La Jolla Blvd. For more information, visit or call (858) 459-0831.

Hello holograms! This sci-fi trend is all the rage right now and we are seeing it in all forms of fashion, from ready-to-wear to handbags. It picks up and plays on any color pallet (très chic with all black too!), especially the neon colors we are seeing for the holiday/resort seasons. It will easily carry into spring and summer, as well, since we usually see bright, fun colors during this time. This is the perfect example of fashion being fun and funky. I have the clutch pictured and I wear it with everything — and at $248 I can use it now and then pull it out for years to come. When I saw it, I knew it was one of those pieces that would never stop being cool.

The Bishop’s School’s talented symphony orchestra will present “A Symphonic Wonderland” at the campus’ Taylor Performing Arts Center on Dec. 12. The program will begin at 7 p.m. with a harp performance of the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky, featuring a beautiful lyrical cadenza by Bishop’s junior Elizabeth Barnes. Freshman Jay Shankar and guest musician Alexander Gourevitsh — lead clarinetist with the Moscow Philharmonic and the Moscow Radio Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra — will also delight audience members with the magical sounds of Mendelssohn’s Concertpiece. The Bishop’s instrumental ensemble and symphony orchestra are also included in the program under the leadership of conductor Vladimir Goltsman. Tickets are $7.50 and available at The Bishop’s School is located at 7607 La Jolla Blvd.

MUST PLAY The folks at Hotel La Jolla know that the holidays are as much for the family pooch as it is for the kids. That’s why the contemporary boutique hotel, part of the Kimpton family of hotels, is inviting pet owners to bring their furry family member to their festively decorated lobby for a photo opportunity with Santa Paws and tasty treats for their pet. La Jolla-based Muttropolis and the Rancho Coastal Humane Society will also be on hand with surprise giveaways for participants at the two-day event on Dec. 8 and 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. Hotel La Jolla is located at 79565 La Jolla Shores Drive.

Bryna McAnuff, Vivien and Jeffrey Ressler (he’s LJP board chair), Des McAnuff (“Yoshimi” director), Bradley “Shooz” Rapier (“Yoshimi” choreographer) and Joani Rapier

The La Jolla Playhouse (LJP) held a celebration recently for the opening of its latest world premiere musical, “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.” It all began with cocktails, specialty drinks and a variety of inventive hors d’oeuvres (ranging from a tofu dish to slowbraised pork shoulder and even glazed Alaskan black cod) provided by Giuseppe Catering. After guests had had a chance to eat, drink and socialize, LJP board chairman Jeffrey Ressler commanded their attention and introduced Michael Rosenberg

(who’d do quite well as a TV talk-show host if he wasn’t already gainfully employed as LJP’s managing director). Rosenberg expressed the theater’s appreciation to the sponsors and supporters who enable LJP to bring new productions to the stage, and without whom there could not be such daring new productions as this one, which require multi-year development cycles before the theater can begin to stage performances and sell tickets. Rosenberg also thanked Victoria Hamilton, head of San Diego’s Commis-

Michael Rosenberg (LJP managing director), Sprague Grayden, Marye Anne Fox and Jim Whitesell

sion for Arts and Culture since its 1988 inception. She stepped down in November, leaving a laudable legacy that includes getting the City Council to commit to doubling arts and culture funding over the next five years. LJP’s very creative artistic director, Christopher Ashley, then introduced the play’s choreographer, Bradley “Shooz” Rapier, and its director, Des McAnuff (who was Ashley’s predecessor as artistic director from 1984 to 2007). Asked how they arrived at the physical life of this production, the pair revealed that it

took seven years to bring it to the stage. Based on the 2002 Flaming Lips album of the same name, with music and lyrics by frontman Wayne Coyne, the play’s story was written and developed by Coyne and McAnuff. It tells of love’s value to life and of the importance of living in the present. As theater regulars will recall, McAnuff had a truly stellar career at LJP, really pouring his heart into building it up. He feels his role there was his life’s greatest accomplishment. Regard-

CONTINUED FROM Page 10 ing Ashley, his successor, McAnuff said, “I am so grateful and appreciative to you for putting the place in such worthy hands.” Returning the compliment, Ashley said, “No one has ever turned over the artistic reins of a theater more generously than Des.” Guests adjourned to the theater for the performance, which opened to a packed house. The play tells the story of Yoshimi, a happy, charming 20-something artist. She suddenly finds herself facing the battle of her life, fighting a form of cancer. Journeying into a fantastical world of mutant blood cells (the robots — one of which is 14 feet tall), she wages a war with fate. Medical experts (including La Jolla’s Dr. Ivor Royston) were consulted to ensure sci-

entific accuracy, but this poignant, humanistic story is really about the triumph of love and optimism over the mystery of our own mortality. The incredibly beautiful production features wonderful sets and masterful lighting, and seemingly impossible movements by actors and objects. The performers’ voices were so flawless that it seemed they were lip-synching (they weren’t!). This must-see production, certainly one of LJP’s best ever, will run through Dec. 16 and seems surely bound for Broadway. At a post-performance party, cast, crew and guests celebrated heartily with drinks, desserts and a DJ. They formed a big circle, within which several took turns showing off with impromptu hiphop and acrobatic breakdancing moves that were both entertaining and amazing.

CONTINUED FROM Page 9 charming with its urban fire tables and customized lounge seating. With our appetites fully satisfied, what better way to round out the evening than to check out a movie at the brand-new ArcLight Cinemas? As longtime moviegoers, we thought we had seen it all. But this is truly unique and the type of experience everyone should have at least once, if not more. Unlike some theaters that are cramped and frenzied, ArcLight is all about comfort, catering to the moviegoer. Although customers can buy their tickets upon arrival, moviegoers are encouraged to buy and reserve their seat in advance, which eliminates the

mad rush of waiting in line and rushing to save seats. As a result, moviegoers did seem more relaxed and because they knew exactly where they were seated, there wasn’t any awkwardness of trying to figure out which seats were still available. We actually did not buy our tickets to “Silver Linings Playbook” in advance but fortunately, we had a helpful staff member walk us through the process. When we finally entered the theater, we were impressed with the ample legroom, soft cushy seats, not to mention the large screen and crystalclear sound system. The theater even had a new car smell to its shiny new interior. ArcLight’s 14 screens feature stadium seating, so there are no bad seats. Our theater seated less than 100 people, giving it an intimate feeling, with

ushers on hand to guide guests to their seats. Viewers who get annoyed by excessive talking, texting and late arrivals disrupting their experience will be happy to know ArcLight has a very strict policy when it comes to disturbing the peace: they simply don’t tolerate it. Our recommendation? Become an ArcLight member so you can take advantage of the theater’s loyalty program, which awards savings and points that can be redeemed for purchases in the sit down café, bar, gift shop or for tickets. — Marc & Darlynne Menkin are the co-owners of Where You Want To Be Tours.
