  • Military Discounts La Jolla Playhouse

    Posted by Kimberly Shapazian at 2/3/2014
    La Jolla Playhouse is pleased to offer Military Discounts for the first two weeks of performances of THE WHO & THE WHAT, a world premiere play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Ayad Akhtar. $25 tickets are available to San Diego military organizations and their constituencies February 11 - 23. This offer is available to military men and women (retired and active), their families, and the civilian employees and volunteers who support them. Please feel free to share this offer.

Zarina's one outlet – her recently completed book about women and Islam – threatens to tear her family apart for good. With humor and ferocity, Ayad Akhtar's The Who & The What examines the giant chasm between our traditions and our contemporary lives..

    $25 tickets are available to our Military friends February 11 - 23. Call the box office or buy online with the code SDMILITARY.
