The La Jolla Playhouse and MCASD have partnered to bring San Diego a new interactive experience, La Lucha, by award-winning designer David Israel Reynoso and his immersive theatrical company Optika Moderna.

Inspired by Lucha Libre - where professional Mexican wrestlers use masks and high-flying maneuvers to astonish and captivate audiences – La Lucha transports visitors to a realm of ringside thrills and backstage secrecies. The experience will be hosted at the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Building.

As part of its initial limited run, San Diego audiences will be able to preview the experience as part of The 2023 WOW Festival running April 27 – 30, 2023. After the festival, La Lucha will open to the public in May 2023.
