Love InBUENA PARK, Calif.– Celebrating 40 years since the “Summer of Love,” Adams Entertainment and Lyric Opera San Diego presented the world premiere of “Love In: A Musical Celebration of 1967” in early September at the Birch North Park Theater in San Diego. Created by the producers of “Primal Twang,” which debuted to sold-out audiences at the Birch North Park Theatre in September 2006, “Love In” is a theatrical celebration of the music of 1967 featuring legendary guest artists and a spectacular psychedelic light show. As with “Primal Twang,” Adams Entertainment filmed the performances of “Love In” for commercial release.
