Richmond Hoxie, Lee Sellars, Gregory Balla, Tom Patterson, Bill Kux and Kevin Hafso-Koppman perform in La Jolla Playhouse’s production of ‘Ether Dome’ by Elizabeth Egloff, directed by Michael Wilson, running through Aug. 10.  Kevin Berne

The traumatic experience behind performing amputations, tumor removals and vasectomies without anesthesia is immediately intriguing when Playhouse patrons view the incredible set design by James Youmans, representing the real ether dome at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1886.

Cutline 1 - Into the Woods - advance

Since the earliest fairytales emerged to enchant and mesmerize, children have been transported to imaginative places. But it’s not only children who have been charmed, so have adults.
