Playwright, actors and patrons gather at ‘Restoration’ pre-show reception

Board members, patrons, actors and others recently gathered in the La Jolla Playhouse Courtyard for an opening night pre-show reception for the world premiere of “Restoration” by Claudia Shear, directed by Christopher Ashley.
