The La Jolla Playhouse is inviting you to come out Friday to get your hands on some food...and then a "hardbody."
at the theater is a chance for the audience to socialize, eat and drink before a performance. Food trucks that serve up barbecue and various griddled creations (Super Q BBQ and Ms. Patty Melt, respectively) will be in the parking lot of the Playhouse to serve up hungry guests. Patrons can also sip on complimentary microbrew from Stone Brewing Co. as they munch on the food truck fare.
The eating and drinking will precede a performance of Hands on a Hardbody, which has its final performance on June 17 at the Playhouse. The adapted stage show tells the story of strangers who have had more than their fair share of hard times. The 10 people are all competing for a new hardbody truck and must endure 144 hours of emotional and physical testing to fight for it. The play is based on the documentary film of the same name and features a score from Amanda Green and Trey Anastasio of Phish, along with a masterful story by Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright.
Hands on a Hardbody is slated to hit Broadway after its run at the La Jolla Playhouse, so take advantage of Foodie Friday and see this hit production and stuff yourself with fun food.
Tickets for this particular event can be purchased online here and cost anywhere from $40 to $80, depending on seats available. The show starts at 8 p.m. June 8, but the foodie fun begins at 6 p.m.
