LA is WICKED Amazing!

Wicked NY

Returning to Los Angeles, at the iconic Pantages Theater, this amazing musical won’t disappoint.

A vivid reimagining of the classic The Wizard of Oz,Wicked spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous (or infamous) characters, namely the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The show follows green-skinned star Elphaba from birth to college and through the life-changing events which eventually label her “wicked,” introducing spoiled rich girl Glinda, local prince and heartthrob Fiyero and even the Wizard of Oz himself, a troubled man very unlike the one you may remember. As Elphaba, a passionate political activist if there ever was one, fights injustice and seeks to undo the mistakes of the past, dark secrets and personal tragedies shape the history of Oz, paying homage to the classic Wizard of Oz story while simultaneously changing fans’ understanding of it forever. A cautionary tale about love, friendship and trust, Wicked effortlessly reveals that there are indeed two sides to every story.


Add this to your “Must See” list for your next Los Angeles getaway!

It’s Broadway Baby!

Minutes away from our hotel, in the heart of Hollywood, on Hollywood Boulevard, right down the block from Vine Street, stands the Pantages Theatre. It’s a fitting location: The Pantages has become one of the greatest landmarks of Hollywood, signifying both the glorious past and adventuresome future of the world’s entertainment capital.

The Pantages has a history as grand and diverse as the stage and screen fare which audiences have flocked to enjoy there for half a century. These days it’s one of Los Angeles’  leading homes of legitimate theatre (the five highest-grossing weeks in L.A.’s theatrical history were all shows at the Pantages) and a favorite “location” for tv shows, movies and music videos. In the past, it has been a movie house, with live vaudeville acts between features as well as the site of many gala premieres and “spectaculars.” For ten years the Pantages Theatre was the home of the glittering Academy Awards Presentations.

From Broadway hit musicals like Shrek The Musical and Wicked to popular family shows and well known classics such as La Cage Aux Follies and Mamma Mia, The Pantages Theater offers a world of fantastic entertainment.  So make your stay in Los Angeles extra special with tickets to the most popular Los Angeles shows.
