Laguna Playhouse to Host STAGE AND SCREEN: AN INTIMATE CONVERSATION WITH LESLIE CARON, 5/11
Stage and screen star Leslie Caron speaks about her long and illustrious career in an intimate conversation at The Laguna Playhouse. Ms. Caron will be hosted by her longtime friend and producer Vincent Curcio in a question-and-answer format similar to "Inside the Actors' Studio." The conversation will be followed by an opportunity to meet Ms. Caron and purchase her memoir, "Thank Heaven." Ms. Caron will be signing books in the lobby. As a special bonus in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 26th Academy Awards (March 25, 1954) in which Ms. Caron was honored as a Best Actress nominee for her performance in "Lili" (1953), The Playhouse will be showing a free screening of the film at 7 pm. Concessions will be available. The perfect gift for Mother's Day, and a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear from this living legend!
General admission seating is $25 for the Stage and Screen event and book signing. Admission to the film is free. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling (949) 497-2787.
The box office is open Mondays - Sundays: Noon to 5 p.m. (open until 7:30pm on performance days).
