Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots & Pre-show Meetup at Jai


The 30 and Under program will always be available for most performance.  The La Jolla Playhouse recently did a promotion at the Union Tribune's Night and Day Fest for $30 tickets in area 2 for several performances in the first week of the production, though our Saturday night tickets are not available in that promotion. If you would like to participate in this discount program, you can use your cell phone to text 'YOHSIMI' to the number 56654.  The link in the responding message activates the discount.

There is great interest in this show. It has quite a buzz among our group, as well as throughout the San Diego community. Because of this, I recommend you get your tickets as soon as you can!

We have been given 35% off tickets for the World Premier of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, featuring music by The Flaming Lips! We are attending a Preview show.

    Thank you for your feedback and you're welcome Alyssa! I agree... it was a wonderful, memorable evening and phenomenal, moving show. I also agree that it will go to Broadway and will win awards. If it doesn't then there is something wrong with the system! Glad those that were able to see it could see it first here in San Diego. Another outstanding production by La Jolla Playhouse!

    It was a great performance, very unique and current and moving. I'm so glad I went and can say I saw it in San Diego when it was in previews because I know this play is going to soon to Broadway. The whole evening was a great experience including gathering at Jai restaurant on the UCSD campus beforehand for Wolfgang Puck cuisine (yum ). My thanks to Sindi for planning the event (bravo)!

    I'm getting excited to see this Des McAnuff premiere!
    I'm treating a friend for her birthday, so I got the last 2 tix in Row L.
    This will be my first show with the Group so I look forward to meeting all of you at Jai before showtime. Thank you Sindi for organizing this event!

    I'm looking forward to this event, both the preshow get together and the show. No surprise that we have a great turnout. Here's a suggestion - as Sindi has suggested an assistant organizer could be helpful because she is traveling to/fromLA etc., would it be helpful to talk about this at our preshow meetup? I apologize for making this suggestion and not being able to step up to help as an assistant. Maybe someone else would like to do so, and we can explore this at our get together. This has been the best meetup group I've been a part of, thanks to Sindi - she is a great organizer, and terrific person. So whatever we can do to keep the show going....

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
