Stay and Play at The Lodge
December 9-10, 2017
The Lodge at Torrey Pines is partnering with La Jolla Playhouse for an unforgettable Stay and Play package that includes two tickets to the world-premiere of Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, an exclusive brunch with performances by cast members, and luxurious accommodations.
This vibrant, world-premiere musical charts the incomparable life of Donna Summer, the undisputed Queen of Disco, from her modest Boston childhood to international stardom. Told through the dramatic lens of her final concert, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical presents the complexities and conflicts the iconic songwriter and singer faced in her meteoric rise – and descent. Featuring three actresses in the title role and a score with more than 20 of Summer’s classic hits including “Love to Love You, Baby,” “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff,” this electric experience is a moving tribute to the voice of a generation.
La Jolla Playhouse Director Emeritus Des McAnuff is acclaimed for creating unforgettable theatrical events from indelible popular music in such shows as The Who’s Tommy and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Now, with Summer, McAnuff is joined by his Jersey Boys choreographer Sergio Trujillo as they return to the Playhouse with a production that combines touching drama with the propulsive, kinetic heart of a rock concert.
The exclusive brunch will feature Tony-Award winning LaChanze, who plays Diva Donna and will perform select numbers from the show. She’ll be joined by castmates Ariana Debose, who plays Disco Donna, and Jared Zirilli, who plays Bruce Sudano. The package cost is $599 per couple. 858.453.4420, lodgetorreypines.com
