The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center presents the one-woman comedy Ruby Wax: Out Of Her Mind, starring the brash and honest UK based comic Ruby Wax. Presented by The Broad Stage and Menier Chocolate Factory, Ruby Wax: Out Of Her Mind opens on January 23rd and runs through February 3rd.
