Residents and visitors who have never had a chance to experience Santa Monicaï¿½s exquisite historical jewel, the Miles Memorial Playhouse, will have a perfect opportunity during the upcoming series ï¿½Fireside at the Milesï¿½. The space has been transformed — we are striking the risers, putting in sofas, carpets and a coffee bar and orienting the space around the gorgeous period fireplace.
Between January 8th and February 6th, the Miles will offer fireside programming every Friday and Saturday night beginning at 8PM. Fridays feature an eclectic line-up of music, and on Saturday nights the Miles partners with local theater companies to present readings of Pulitzer Prize-winning American dramas.
Doors open at 7:00PM ï¿½ Concerts and readings begin promptly at 8:00PM. Evenings end at 10:00PM.
