‘Luann’ comic writer to debut new musicals in Escondido

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - The comic strip ‘Luann’ has been a staple in many San Diego homes for over thirty years. Writer Greg Evans has turned his massively popular comic strip into two separate musicals.

‘Quibbling Siblings’ and ‘A Boy and a Girl’ will hit the stage the Patio Playhouse Theater in Escondido on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through February 17th. 

‘Quibbling Siblings!’ is the story of the family of two kids who bicker and fight to no end and end up competing on a game show that pits families against each other to see who fight the nastiest. Through their twists and foibles, they learn that even if they argue at times, their love for each other runs deep.

‘A Boy and A Girl’ is all about two children born on the same day who couldn’t be more different and from more different families. They take you on a journey of their life growing up together, but in the end, it is the differences that help them get along.

The two productions are partnering with the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation to help them fund the needs of San Diego’s Fire & Rescue divisions. 

Writer Greg Evans along with his business partner and daughter, Karen Evans joined News 8 Morning Extra to talk about the new musicals.
