“Inherit the Wind,” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, and directed by Adrian Noble runs through September 25, 2012 at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre in Balboa Park.

Two powerhouse lawyers face off in a small-town with the eyes of an entire nation upon them when a professor is arrested for teaching Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution in his classroom. When the issue goes to trial, the two attorneys must passionately confront questions of faith and science in a heated courtroom. This fictional re-creation of the infamous Scopes Monkey Trial tackles issues that are every bit as relevant today as they were in 1925.

“Divine Rivalry,” by Michael Kramer with D. S. Moynihan is directed by Michael Wilson and runs from July 7 through August 5 at the Old Globe’s Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage at the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.

“Divine Rivalry” transports audiences to 16th-century Florence, where two of the world’s greatest artists, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, face off in a painting competition orchestrated by political mastermind Niccolò Machiavelli (The Prince). This fascinating real life contest forms the backdrop for an even greater battle as the leading minds of the Renaissance clash over political gain, personal riches and the immortality of art.
