A New Immersive Experience from the Creator of ACCOMPLICE
The latest presentation in the acclaimed Without Walls (WoW) series, THE GRIFT at the Lafayette Hotel is a world-premiere, immersive theatre piece which takes audiences on a participatory journey through the extraordinary rooms and spaces of this expansive, 1940s-era landmark. They are introduced to Ben, who, under mysterious circumstances, lived his entire life at the hotel. Having found an unlikely mentor in a traveling con-man who was a frequent guest at the hotel, Ben’s last wish is to enlist the audience’s help to execute one final, giant swindle. Like the three-time-extended ACCOMPLICE: San Diego, this thrilling new show is part game, part drama as patrons learn the art of the con in a unique immersive theatrical experience.
"Our Without Walls presentations always take patrons to unexpected places for a theatrical experience unlike any other. Tom Salamon follows up his inventive ACCOMPLICE with this interactive, noir-inspired piece that brings audiences to yet another new location – the celebrated Lafayette Hotel – where they become part of the action in an entertaining, clue-solving group adventure."
- La Jolla Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley

This is cool, classy jazz music with a touch of pop. The kind of music you hear when you stop in at the lounge on the corner with the guys from work. Normandie is frequently compared to modern-day sirens (Becky Stark, Inara George, of Bird and the Bee) and vintage classics (Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick, Astrud Gilberto). Normandie's sound falls sweetly on the ears of fans of classic 60's pop, lounge, bossa nova, and modern jazz chanteuses like Melody Gardot, Norah Jones, and Diana Krall. "I always had a hard time singing loud, and that used to be a big problem for me. It wasn't until I heard singers like Dionne Warwick, Karen Carpenter, and Astrud Gilberto that I became comfortable with my own voice," she says. Normandie is thrilled to have a residency at the Lafayette.
Normandie plays every Wednesday from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm starting February 4th
