Broadway star Davis Gaines, who reigns supreme with his run of more than 2,000 performances as The Phantom of the Opera, takes the title role in Musical Theatre West's revival of this all-time family favorite, a romantic comedy perfect for Valentine's season. The Music Man follows fast-talking salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments for a boys' band he vows to organize -- despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. The Tony-winning musical boasts a rousing score from Meredith Wilson, with memorable tunes like "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More

Wow this event was not what I expected. Because it's about Family Guy, a show I love, it's inherently going to be a little funny (not a total disaster). Having said that, a lot of things were disappointing.
First, Seth gets on stage and attempts to manage audience expectations by warning us that this is not a standup routine but he'll try to throw a joke in every once in awhile. I don't think it's wise to start off the show by telling you what it's not. He should have focused on what awesomeness he WAS going to offer us. He stood at a podium all the way to the left of the stage for the entire time he spoke, which wasn't all that long.
Then, he showed us an episode of Family Guy that had yet to air, telling us we were the first sneak peak to experience it. The episode was hilarious, but I did not need to pay an admission and drive all the way to Long Beach just to see an episode that's airing NEXT WEEKEND! Plus, the event advertised that we'd be seeing an episode Fox never allowed to air, and that's simply not what we ended up seeing.
Finally, Seth opened the floor to questions for more than half the show. How completely unstructured this event was. Seth talks at a podium with a sheet of notes for less than an hour, shows an episode I could watch on my DVR next week, and then answers audience questions for a really long time.
I had a decent time. I know I sound a bit harsh, but when I am expecting one thing and get something COMPLETELY different, the result is going to be disappointing. If I had paid full price for this, I'd have been much more upset. On the good side, the episode we saw was hilarious no doubt about it, Seth gave us some great insight into how the show is made and what his inspirations were, plus he acted out some of the characters and improvised. I just wish I knew what I was getting into when I committed to spending an evening at this event so far from home. If I had known the format would be so, for lack of a better word, lazy, I probably would not have attended.
The evening was redeemed with frozen yogurt after the show. Thank goodness for that!
He’s hip, creative, intellectual, and has made the dysfunctional American family hilarious for millions. As creator and executive producer of the Emmy Award- winning animated series Family Guy and American Dad, in his pursuit of no-holds-barred humor.
