“POP’s trademark production is now a holiday tradition. The Highland Park Hipsters are headed to Ventura County this year to bring Puccini’s most popular opera from 1830s Paris to 2020 Los Angeles. (Technically the opera begins on December 24, 2019.) This year’s production will be extra interesting as the tragedy of the pandemic is woven into the staging. But don’t worry, there will still be plenty of laughs to go along with a few tears. We currently plan to make this the last Hipsters production for a few years. If you’ve never seen this hit production, you don’t know what you’re missing. If you’ve seen it before, this one is going to be different to say the least.” POP Press Release
