We’re transforming Le Conte Avenue into an intimate, outdoor fine dining and theater experience for 216 guests with the Geffen Playhouse as the beautifully lit backdrop. A delicious 3-coursed dinner by Chef Abigail Chilton of Alligator Pear Catering will welcome guests followed by a performance of music, dance and intimate theater stories by secret celebrity guests.
Join us in-person or online as we honor Amanda Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in US history, alongside the Honorable Nicole Avant, former US Ambassador and husband Ted Sarandos, Co-CEO of Netflix. Proceeds support Geffen Playhouse's artistic and community initiatives.
You never know who will show up to perform, tell a story, or steal the show!
