Page To Stage is La Jolla Playhouse's signature new play development program in which audiences experience the "birth" of a play. Throughout the rehearsal and run of the show, the playwright and director make constant changes in response to audience reactions and feedback.
Encompassing commissions, readings, workshops and workshop productions, Page To Stage serves the specific needs of a project at all stages in its evolution, helping artists take their work to the next level of development.
As La Jolla Playhouse continues to cultivate new plays through this dynamic, audience-inclusive development process, we hope you'll join us for more thrilling journeys in seasons to come.
