90 minutes. No intermission. It's the small theatre at the Geffen. Intimate, but chilly.

Description

April 1 & 8 & 15, 2014: Talk Back Tuesdays

Talk Back Tuesdays give theater lovers with a thirst for deeper conversation a chance to discuss plot, character, themes or any other questions they might have directly with the artists. This stimulating series includes pre-show coffee and tea tastings, compliments of Peet’s Coffee & Tea, as well as a chance to interact with the actors — and the occasional playwright or director — when they come out on stage after the show and take questions from the audience.

April 24, 2014: Girls’ Night Out*

It’s a globally accepted piece of pop-culture that girls just wanna have fun, and this Signature Series was designed with that in mind; although of course, gentlemen are welcome to join as well. These unique after-parties only happen once during each production, and every Girls’ Night Out features partnerships with different lifestyle experts, brands or products that keep patrons on the cusp of what’s hot in L.A. Each night is completely different with after-parties ranging from private shopping events to restaurant tastings, but every Girls’ Night Out promises a festive evening of theater followed by an utterly unique party complete with complimentary drinks, appetizers, photo booth and a takeaway beauty gift.

Please arrive early and request your wristband at our Girls’ Night Out check-in table set in the theater’s main lobby starting at 7:00pm. Without a wristband, you cannot attend the after-party.

This production is approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
