Strength in our Roots

A Redwood-inspired Fundraising Campaign

We invite you to participate in this special, limited-time campaign in honor of our new musical, Redwood – a world premiere that shines a light on the magnificent redwood forests of California.

Even the tallest redwood tree has roots that only go down about six feet – these ancient giants would topple over, except that their roots intertwine. Tree after tree entangle together, strengthening the entire forest.

Just like the redwoods, we’re stronger together. It takes all of us, from our artists developing new work in the rehearsal room to the dedicated community of donors and audience members who show up every season to help us grow.

La Jolla Playhouse’s world premiere production of Redwood celebrates the precious and precarious world of the redwoods—but what you may not know is how this production has been a longtime passion project of Broadway icon Idina Menzel and Redwood director Tina Landau.

“I’ve gone to different redwood forests and spent time in them. The experience is incomparable and hard to describe. When you’re in the presence of those beings, these completely magnificent trees, you feel their silence, their scale, their age… and a sense of sacredness pervades everything.”
– Tina Landau
