We've rounded up some of the best photos from the evening so no one feels left out.

The production, called The Unauthorized O.C.

Sadly, Mischa Barton, Adam Brody, and Ben McKenzie weren't in the audience.

Also, unsurprisingly, the production opened with the cast singing the O.C. theme song "California" by Phantom Planet. The cast also broke out into songs made popular by the TV show throughout performance.
