Founded in 1947 by Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire and Mel Ferrer, La Jolla Playhouse advances theatre as an art form and as a vital social, moral and political platform by providing unfettered creative opportunities for the leading artists of today and tomorrow. With our youthful spirit and eclectic, artist-driven approach we will continue to cultivate a local and national following with an insatiable appetite for audacious and diverse work. The Playhouse's brilliant and innovative productions of classics, new plays and musicals, including 70 world premieres, 40 commissions and 38 American or West Coast premieres, have merited over 300 major honors, including 35 Tony Awards for productions that have transferred to Broadway, along with the 1993 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre.
