Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More

A wonderful, well-paced, warm-fuzzy evening filled with valentines from the performers to Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, who were both in attendance at this fundraiser for the LACC Theatre program. Simply set with the musical director/pianist and a small pit band on stage, each performer walked out on stage and just cut loose. Talk about vocal fireworks! Oh my! Bruce Kimmel puts together wonderful tributes, and this was done with tons of heart and talent. Did you ever feel that you hadn't paid enough for your ticket? Yeah, that's how it was last night!
