La Jolla Playhouse hosts A Winter Fantasy, a gala benefit for the Playhouse's new play development and education programs, featuring Tony Award®-winning actress and singer Patti LuPone. LuPone treats guests to a once-in-a-lifetime performance as they drink, eat and dance the night away in a fantasy landscape that transforms the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Center. The evening begins at 6:00 PM with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the courtyard lobby. At 7:30 PM, patrons are ushered into the Potiker Theatre for a gourmet dinner designed by Wolfgang Puck Catering. The entertainment begins at 8:30 PM with a live auction and continues with a musical performance featuring Patti LuPone. Then, guests can tear up the dance floor to the tunes of Zowie Bowie as the New Play Development Center is transformed into an icy blue lounge with a magical dessert and dance soirée.
