LOVE STRUCK: An evening of art, high fashion and theatre and vintage clothing from the museum collection curated by Anjela Piccard.

Inspired by La Jolla Playhouse's current production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, LOVE STRUCK is a very fun and amorous runway fashion & high art experience set in the rolling garden area outside of LJP's Weiss Theatre.

The evening begins at 5:00 pm with a music-infused cocktail mixer and art exhibition on the Playhouse's Weiss Lawn, followed by a vintage apparel showing, featuring the Women's History Museum collection, at 6:00 pm. At 7:15 pm will be a high fashion runway show with a special introduction from Playhouse Artistic Director and Midsummer director Christopher Ashley.

The evening caps off with a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at 8:00 pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to Midsummer for $40.00.

Admission to LOVE STRUCK is FREE and open to all-ages. DJ Rob "Hitman" Hartz spins throughout. There will be a full-service themed bar for 21 & up guests.

Produced by Jon Block Creations, and curated by Anjela Piccard, this Theater-Fashion-Art experience is the latest JBC production to merge multiple creative mediums while bringing top San Diego talent to the forefront.
