Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

I enjoyed myself especially aa the evening started to break in. What lovely sounds. it was so wonderful to be there and even though the stars did not show, my imagination was working "wild".
Did not have to have any thing to enjoy but the beautiful music.

it was a nice night, good music food and friends. a good way just to relax and listen to music. if it hadn't been cloudy it would have been perfect. The hollywood bowl is truely a great venue. Even with the cheap seats its a good show. ;)
