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.

“Restoration,” which is sponsored by Gail and Ralph Bryan and Dr. Howard and Barbara Milstein, was inspired by the restoration of Michelangelo’s David in 2004. It’s the story of a woman who spends a year in the shadow of a masterpiece and uncovers herself in the process.

The play runs through July 19. Performance times are 7:30 p.m Tuesday and Wednesday; 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; and 7 p.m. Sunday. Matinees are held at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Single ticket prices range from $30 to $65. Purchase tickets by calling (858) 550-1010 or go to
