La Jolla Playhouse will hold its annual Gala on Saturday, March 29. This year's theme is a celebration of 30 years of groundbreaking theatre since the Playhouse was reborn on the campus of UC San Diego. Sponsored by Qualcomm and Donor Nation, the Gala proceeds will benefit the Playhouse's education and new play development programs.
The 2014 Gala will boast a contemporary lounge atmosphere, featuring custom banquettes and multi-level platforms, designed by the Playhouse's renowned scene shop artisans. The evening will begin at 6:00pm with a cocktail party in the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre Lobby in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Center for La Jolla Playhouse, featuring signature spirits and savory treats. Guests will then move into the Potiker Theatre where they'll enjoy a specially-prepared, dinner-by-the-bite menu, catered by Chef Jeffrey Strauss and Pamplemousse Grille.
