One Paseo in Carmel Valley a possible new home for North Coast Rep

By Karen Billing

Could a new location for the North Coast Repertory Theater be a part of the proposed One Paseo development?

According to Dr. Allen Moffson, president of North Coast Rep’s board of trustees, there have been very preliminary discussions with Kilroy Realty over the last few weeks about the company finding a new home at One Paseo.

“There is nothing concrete, it’s just in its infancy right now. We’ve wanted to move into a bigger facility and  [One Paseo] is certainly interesting because it’s such a good location,” Moffson said. “I have no idea where the project is going to go or if it’s going to be approved…I know it’s controversial but if it did go, it would be a great location to have a theater like ours.”

Currently North Coast Rep makes its home in Solana Beach, in a 194-seat theater on Lomas Santa Fe Drive. Moffat said their goal for expansion has been to find a 350-seat theater.

The theater does about seven main-stage plays a year, as well as four theater school youth productions. Their shows run Wednesday through Sunday.

On its Monday and Tuesday off-nights the theater remains busy –“Vincent,” a play by Leonard Nimoy running one night only on March 4, sold out in two hours.

While Moffson said at this point there are no specifics as to where a theater would go in One Paseo or how big it would be, he said it only makes sense that they do their due diligence in having the discussions about the potential opportunity.

“I think it would add a lot of class and pizzazz,” said Moffson. “It would be a good cultural center.”

    No one paseo !!! Get it?? Nada ! No way. Unless they meet the zoning requirements.

    Please do not re locate here, the traffic will be horrendous, and the rents will break this great theater company! Do not trust kilroy, they will raise the rent sky high and drive you out!

    I support the arts and think this is a great idea. I say “Yes!” to NCRT & to One Paseo.
