"Cloudlands" Soars

On April 20th the collaboration between South Coast Repertory and two gifted artists— Octavio Solis and Adam Gwon—culminated in the world premiere of their dramatic musical, Cloudlands.  First Nighters jumped to their feet to cheer for what the Los Angeles Times has since called “An extraordinary new work...nothing short of a triumph for all concerned.”

Among those sharing the excitement on this historic night were an adventurous group of underwriters who helped make the Cloudlands journey possible, the Playwrights Circle.  Members include Gail and Ernie Doe,  Bill and Carolyn Klein, Chase McLaughlin, Carl and Patricia Neisser, Robert Palmer, Tom and Beth Phelps, John and Carolina Prichard, Barbara and Bill Roberts, Richard P. and Jane Taylor and Linda and Tod White.

After the Cloudlands standing ovation, First Nighters and their guests strolled outside onto Ela’s Terrace for the Cast Party, an all-white event with food by Mark’s Catering and a chocolate bar by C. Salt Gourmet. There, under glittering white lights, they gathered to congratulate the artists and thank the Honorary Producers for an unforgettable evening.
