Two-time Grammy Award-winning singer Jason Mraz will debut the first musical of his career, “Shine,” on Feb. 15 and 16, 2020, at the Spreckels Theatre. 

Mraz’s songs will serve as a score to the musical. Additionally, several local nonprofit arts and arts education groups will collaborate with the singer in the production. These nonprofits include Malashock Dance and transcenDANCE, which are both based in Liberty Station. 

Malashock Dance makes dance accessible for underserved students, low-income families, and dancers with disabilities. Similarly, transcenDANCE helps young dancers in underserved San Diego communities to transcend borders, expand artistic ambitions, and create positive change through dance and performance. 

Both dance groups have been beneficiaries of the nonprofit Jason Mraz Foundation, which promotes inclusive arts education and the advancement of equality with the goal of causing world peace.

At the beginning of his career, Mraz moved to Oceanside; and his time spent in San Diego has been a great influencer of his music. He is known for his singer-songwriter vibe, but before Mraz became popular in the coffee shop scene, he was involved in musical theater throughout high school and college. In 2017, Mraz even went on to star opposite Sara Bareilles on Broadway in her acclaimed hit musical “Waitress.”

“Shine” is a tribute to San Diego; its plot follows Mraz and a group of his friends during a day of exploring the city.

Tickets will be available starting Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. at jasonmraz.com. Tickets range from $49.50 and $119.50 each. Proceeds will go to the Jason Mraz foundation. To learn more, visit jasonmraz.com.

I have been suffering from Herpes for the past 3 years and 8 months, and ever since then i have been taking series of treatment but there was no improvement until i came across testimonies of Dr.Alli on how he has been curing different people from different diseases all over the world, then i contacted him as well. After our conversation he sent me the medicine which i took according to his instructions. When i was done taking the herbal medicine i went for a medical checkup and to my greatest surprise i was cured from Herpes. My heart is so filled with joy.

I’m so happy to testify of the good work of Dr. patrick I Suffer from Herpes virus since 2007 and i had frequent symptoms in my private area, after some time it will go away after using acyclovir drugs, then come back after some months. it was disheartening since i have been diagnosed, but after finding Dr. patrick and his reviews i was convinced that he will definitely cure me and so i contacted and he told me how to get his medicine and using it for just 14 days and i will go and check up and first i said how can that be possible but i used his herbal medicine after making purchase and truly i used it and went for the test again, and my result came back negative. so i made it a task to share this good testimony in the internet so that those sick can benefit and get cured.
