A surprise and a delight. Did not expect that such a somber event could be so positive and enthralling. The treatment of the characters and their cross all lines relationships was terrific and enlightening. The writing, performances and music was great. Left feeling good about everything... a definite go see...

I attended a matinee performance during a trip to San Diego and was blown away by the energy, stagecraft and lighting at this theatre. After a very moving performance, many of the principal actors mingled with members of the audience. I don't think you can go wrong!

If you've never been to the La Jolla Playhouse and like good regional theatre, you must try one of the La Jolla Playhouse's productions. They are always interesting and cutting edge.

On a recent trip to San Diego, we drove up to La Jolla to see if we could get tickets for "The Darrell Hammond Project," a one-man show by the SNL star performed at the La Jolla Playhouse. The Playhouse is on the campus of UC San Diego, in their theatre complex. We were lucky enough to get good seats... More

Read good things online about the playhouse and I wasn't disappointed. Went to see Kingdom City, smallish venue made it an intimate setting. Well written and well acted. Highlight of my trip.

Second City is the birth place of many fabulous comedians, and the cast of this show was excellent. My daughter and I go to the Nutcracker every year. This show was the perfect counter point to the holiday... More
