Tickets have been selling fast to Hanukkah X: Fire & Stars! Get yours before we sell out!

Soul X + Audrey’s Tent present to you this special experience at Trilogy in La Jolla on the 1st night of Hanukkah. Join us for a transformative guided experience as we celebrate Hanukkah, journeying through fire, lights, stars, and sound as we integrate its powerful message of light over darkness into our lives.

We will begin on the Rooftop with a fire show & Menorah lighting. 

Because this night occurs on the Winter Solstice – the darkest day of the year, we will observe the stars through a telescope and learn about the galaxy with Cosmologist & Professor of Physics at UCSD, Brian Keating. 

We will then head down to the 2nd floor for a private guided Sound Meditation on 8 messages of wisdom we can take into our lives from the 8 lights of the Menorah, guided by Rabbi Bortz and John Beck. 

We will cap off our event with an LED Movement Show, Dreidel Tournament, and special parting gifts. Happy Hanukkah!

Special Gift: The first 35 attendees will be gifted a free copy of the book: Losing The Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor.

*Adults of all ages, as well as students in High School & College are all welcome to attend*

The hit musical about the birthplace of some of the greatest songs of all time, now extended through September 1!

33 1/3 – House of Dreams tells the story of the legendary Gold Star Recording Studios and its co-founder, lead engineer and hit maker Stan Ross.  In Hollywood for 33 1/3 years, Gold Star was the birthplace of some of the greatest pop and rock hits of all time. Experience the creation of the music of a young Phil Spector and his Wall of Sound, The Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, Tina Turner, The Righteous Brothers, Ritchie Valens and many, many more. You won’t believe the 30 song playlist, which includes rock n’ roll classics such as “Summertime Blues,” “La Bamba,” “Good Vibrations,” “Be My Baby,” “Unchained Melody,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and, yes, even “In A Gadda Da Vida.” Thirty actors, dancers and a live band will raise the roof of the Lyceum this summer!
