La Jolla Playhouse Presents
The Second City’s
Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue
November 28 – December 21, 2014
Following the enormously-successful run last summer of The Second City’s original
San Diego-centric show, The Good, the Bad and the I-5, the Playhouse is excited
to present The Second City’s Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue this season. This
hilarious new holiday production captures all the magic, mystery and mayhem of the
season with original songs, sketches and improv. The perfect antidote to the annual
office party, The Second City's Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue will make a
fantastic addition to your list of holiday traditions.
Contains strong language and adult situations.

Mandell Weiss Forum
The Mandell Weiss Forum is a 400-seat thrust stage theatre, with audience
members surrounding the stage on three sides. It contains a rehearsal hall, two
courtyards and an outdoor "lobby." Built with sleek industrial materials and
intersecting geometric shapes, it has a long free-standing entry wall with massive
reflective smoky-glass panes that generate the illusion of being both within and outside
of the partition.
