Celebrate Laguna Playhouse’s 100 years of theatre with a ZOOM reading of the first full production the Laguna Playhouse ever produced, Suppressed Desires! Only a few one-act plays have attained and maintained the level of acclaim of this popular and highly amusing travesty about misapplied psychology by Susan Glaspell. In this comedic satire of psychoanalysis, a woman addicted to therapy learns that a little self-delusion may not be a bad thing.
Featuring French Stewart, Vanessa Claire Stewart and Jennifer Shelton
Written as the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, Breathe follows five couples grappling with the virus’s impact on their lives, families, relationships, society, and health. Conceived and written by New York Times best-selling novelist Jodi Picoult and playwright Timothy Allen McDonald, and directed by Tony Award-nominee Jeff Calhoun, Breathe consists of five interlocking suites, with music and lyrics from five songwriting teams. By turns funny and heartbreaking, unbelievable and all-too-real, Breathe is an unprecedented musical chronicling an unprecedented time.
Told in five interlocking suites - each with a different songwriting team and director - Breathe features an all-star cast that includes Tony Award-winners Kelli O’Hara and Brian Stokes Mitchell, Patti Murin, Colin Donnell, Denée Benton, Rubén J. Carbajal, Matt Doyle, Max Clayton, Daniel Yearwood, T. Oliver Reid and Josh Davis.
