Bring binoculars! Arrive before it gets dark so you can navigate the area in case you are unfamiliar with it.

Although the Saban Theater is a nice venue the management doe not control flash cameras and people gloingin an out of the performance. There is a full bar in the lobby and it is left open during the performance. Noise and people goingup and down the isle were very distracting. Performance also stared 25 min late. Theater mgt somewhat lax. anything else here. Just start typing...

WOW; IT KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF. Great choral performance. The orchestra was a plus, as well as the dancers. Leann Rimes connected with the chorus in a special way, & they responded to her giving the gestalt of the performance a special feeling. ...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles

Hailed by the LA Times as “one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music,” Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has been a notable part of Southern California for almost thirty-five years. Formed in 1979 as a completely volunteer effort of 99 men, GMCLA has doubled in size, gained professional artistic and administrative staff, toured internationally, released fifteen compact discs, and appeared with numerous stage, film, and television celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Melissa Manchester, Jerry Herman, Valarie Pettiford and LeAnn Rimes.

Among the many “firsts” of this dynamic arts organization, GMCLA was the first gay ensemble to perform for a sitting U.S. President (both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama); the first openly gay performers to be broadcast over Russian television in 1999; the first gay chorus to tour central Europe (1991) and South America (2006), created the original musical “It Gets Better”to combat anti-LGBT bullying (currently on a U.S. tour), and recently performed at the Academy Awards.

In addition to their vocal excellence, GMCLA wows audiences with their uniquely theatrical and inventive productions, performing three major concerts each season. They bring their music education program, Alive Music Project, to high school students across Los Angeles to build bridges between all communities by sharing music and their personal stories. GMCLA sings for a future free from homophobia and discrimination of all kinds.
