Zhivago
A very talented cast is showcased in the La Jolla Playhouse's world premiere musical based on Boris Pasternak's epic novel.

Nicholas Martin serves up a stylish staging of one of Shakespeare's lesser comedies.
The Race
This fast-paced marathon of movement and theatricality lives up to its title.
