You will keep asking yourself- How did they do that? A special cultural experience. Bring binoculars for a closeup view.

If money is the "sixth sense" that allows us to experience the other five, spend it on this one!!!!!
Truly amazing!!!! An ALL volunteer staff puts on a spectacular performance of "live" renditions of the Masters of the art world. The story line (The Art Detective), coupled with the professional orchestra is enough to enjoy on a clear cool night in Laguna Beach. Add to that, the recreation of some of the art world's masterpieces, and you've got yourself a "no-brainer" for what to do in Laguna Beach. They do rent blankets and binoculars, neither of which did we partake. When we return, on another visit from the East Coast, we would rent and/or bring binoculars, out of idle curiosity. Please note, they are NOT necessary to enjoy the performance.
Both before and after the show, one can meander through the art exhibits adjacent to the amphitheater while grabbing a bite to eat.
(I suggest getting something to eat; that way your wife won't, have a free hand to pick up any of the art, jewelry, photos, on display and you will have a built-in excuse not to purchase because you can't carry it out.) Just joking!!!!!! We going back today just to revisit the gallery.

The Pageant of The Masters should be on everyone's bucket list no matter your age. To see The Masters paintings brought to life on the stage is absolutely astonishing. They change the theme every year so it never gets old This year seemed a little more interactive than in the past which we thoroughly enjoyed.

One of my favorite productions on plant earth! It's all acted, staged and produced by locals. Don't let that fool you, this show is spectacular! We've been for 12 years.
