I'll leave the perspective of the specific show I saw out, because it will be long gone before you read it. In general the theater has a wide variety of high quality shows. However, having seen a lot of shows in many theaters, I will...More

A wonderful theatre experience (Zoot Suits). It seems that every seat is a good seat, and the washrooms actually accommodate a large number of people in a short space of time. Can't wait to make an evening here part of our next visit to LA.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
