Mo`olelo and La Jolla Playhouse make history
Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company was selected by La Jolla Playhouse to be their inaugural Resident Theater Company!
Mo`olelo's inaugural show in residence at La Jolla Playhouse will be Susan Yankowitz's compelling and poetic play dealing with traumatic brain injury. Night Sky is the story of Anna, a brilliant astronomer. When a car accident renders her aphasic, her speech becomes a hodgepodge of disconnected words alternately poetic, funny, confusing and profound. She and her family must fight through the black holes of her mind and journey from her night sky into an unfamiliar world and a new language. A moving story about the resiliency of the human spirit and the universal need to find words to communicate our deepest thoughts and feelings.
Mo`olelo will present Night Sky in partnership with The San Diego Brain Injury Foundation and in memory of Joe Hiel, late husband of board member Elaine Hiel and a constant source of inspiration to the Mo`olelo family.
Performances will run from August 27 September 21, 2008 at The Studio Theatre at La Jolla Playhouse. Tickets will go on sale in mid-May, but you may purchase an Advance Ticket Voucher now, good for any performance of Night Sky for the reduced price of $18 (once tickets go on sale, the general admission prices will be $18 for previews, $35 for opening night, and $27 for all other performances).
