Parking at the theater is $10 but there is a public lot across the street that ranges fron free to affordable depending on what else is going on in Laguna. Read the small portable signs in the lot to know which area to park in.

The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

centers on Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side doctor’s wife, who is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she’s shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend.

After a successful run Off-Broadway, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife played Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre 777 performances. The play received three 2001 Tony nominations, include one for Best Play.
