Best Performing Arts Experiences
Head Outdoors for a Summer Event. Outdoor entertainment is what L.A. summers are all about, from concerts at the open-air Greek Theatre or Hollywood Bowl, to Friday Night Sing-Alongs in the outdoor garden of the Walt Disney Concert Hall at the Music Center, and picnics during a movie screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetery (www.cinespia.org).
Watch a Classic Movie.Theaters and venues throughout the city, like the New Beverly (owned by director Quentin Tarantino), show classic retrospectives all year long.
Visit a Smaller Theater. Although it’s easy to be wowed by performances at large venues, like the Center Theatre Group, it’s the smaller theaters that are getting braver and bolder with their original plays or reworked classics—oftentimes at a cheaper price, too.
