Miss Electricity

Miss Electricity: free theater performance at San Diego Int’l Airport

Travelers passing through San Diego International Airport on Tuesday, March 3, between 11 am and 2 pm, can enjoy a free theater performance.


The La Jolla Playhouse’s Performance Outreach Program Tour will be performing Miss Electricity in the Terminal 2 West Baggage claim area (pre-security).  It’s billed as “a delightful story of a young girl who believes she has magic powers.”

The first show will be around 11 a.m., the second show should start around 12:30.

And just for fun: here’s a picture of Miss Electricity 1891.


This is Lulu Miller.  Her job was to convince an Oregon community that electricity was safe.  So the local electric light company draped Miss Electricity in a string of light bulbs, with bulbs on the tips of her crown and on her scepter.  She had copper on the bottom of her shoes and when she stood on a copper plate on the stage the electric current flashed through wires concealed in the folds of her clothes  – and lit up her outfit.

Magical powers indeed!
