Board sets dinners with its artists to raise funds for The Playhouse

The La Jolla Playhouse launched “Spotlight Dinners,” a new fund-raising project with a series of five intimate events at private homes of Playhouse supporters throughout the year. According to organizers, each event will feature “a sumptuous dinner and a presentation by members of the creative team of an upcoming production.” Limited to 50 people, these exclusive evenings will generate funds to support the Playhouse’s mission of serving as a safe harbor for unsafe work.

The first “Spotlight Dinner,” took place July 18 at Rancho Santa Fe home of Playhouse board member Linda L. Chester and Dr. Kenneth Rind.

The next is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 at the home of board members Lucille and Ron Neeley. Participants can tour the Neeley’s one-of-a-kind concrete, wood and glass home, designed by Mexico City urban planner and architect Alberto Kalach, perched above Del Mar’s spectacular coastline. Guests will also enjoy dinner and a sneak peek into the creation of the Playhouse-commissioned work “Milk Like Sugar,” which will have its world premiere in the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre, Aug. 30–Sept. 25.

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call (858) 550-1070 ext. 141.
