February 24 & 25, 2017: Miles Playhouse, Suchi Branfman & Friends

On Friday, February 24, and Saturday, February 25, 2017, enjoy an exceptional performance by Suchi Branfman & Friends Dance & Movement. Presented by the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs, this is the 8th annual Fireside at the Miles performance series at the historic Miles Memorial Playhouse (John Byers, 1929). The series  began in 2010 to reignite the Playhouse's large period fireplace as a community gathering space for the arts as it was in the 1930s and 40s.
