Broadway productions are making a tremendous comeback in Los Angeles and today’s theaters are offering both local residents and visitors a wide selection of entertaining, life changing plays, musicals and shows to enjoy year round. But this shouldn’t be such a big surprise since LA is the place where stars are born!
For those of you in the middle of planning a vacation and looking for the perfect location to enjoy sun, fun and Broadway all in one place, look no further because the historic Pantages Theatre of Hollywood just announced their lineup of musicals for the upcoming 2011-2012 season.
10/19/2011 – 10/30/2011
Come Fly With Me
11/30/11 – 1/22/2012
3/27/2012 – 4/8/2012
4/12/2012 – 6/2/2012
Although most musical fanatics are likely to be excited to watch all of these productions, the one that has gained the most publicity recently, and the one that I am most anxious to see, is Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of OZ. The musical’s suspenseful plot, stemming from the classic movie Wizard of Oz, has captured audiences everywhere and has earned the popular production a winning spot in 35 major award ceremonies. Tickets typically sell out fast for this one, so make sure you’re the first in line to get a seat for the show. And while you’re at the Pantages Theatre, you might as well take the whole day off to explore the spectacular and oftentimes unpredictable Hollywood scene. You never know what you might find!
See you there.
