SCR-spawned plays that have won acclaim include Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Wit, Richard Greenberg’s Three Days of Rain Rolin Jones’ The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow and Donald Margulies’ Collected Stories and Sight Unseen.
The Segerstrom Stage seats 507 and no seat is more than 13 rows from the stage.
