Performing Arts entertainment in Los Angeles
- Sort by:
At this linchpin of the downtown performing arts scene, splashy musicals play to capacity at the Ahmanson Theatre, while the more intimate Mark Taper Forum premieres high-caliber plays. With Placido Domingo at the helm, the LA Opera has fine-tuned its repertory of classics by master composers, with performances at the Dorothy Chandler pavilion. Parking costs $8 in the evening.
Appreciative summer crowds love the vibe and the variety – Lyle Lovett, Tina Turner, the Russian Ballet, Death Cab for Cutie, Gipsy Kings – at this 5800-seat outdoor venue tucked in the woodsy hills of Griffith Park. Be forewarned, parking is stacked, so plan on a post-show wait.
