Aspen Vincent and the patients

We had an absolutely tremendous opening night last Friday, and the show is in its best shape ever with this new La Jolla Playhouse production. Critics and audiences are responding, and due to popular demand the show has been EXTENDED through August 28.

La Jolla has even been running a contest called “Beauty in Bed” where people send in photos of their slumbering selves (and their beautiful pets). It’s pretty great.

Please tell everyone you know, and help make SBW an even bigger hit in San Diego! La Jolla is running some terrific deals, like “30 And Under” special $20 tickets – and starting next week we’ll be offering something very cool to all ticket buyers: a free download of the newest/most talked-about song from the show, “Good For Me.” Stay tuned here for more details.
