One of Broadway's most loved shows of 2013, The Trip to Bountiful, comes to the Ahmanson stage starring Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams & Blair Underwood -- the same trio who starred in the TV film version of the show earlier this year. Tyson and Williams both headlined last year's Broadway production, which earned Tyson every major theatrical award, including the Tony. The Trip to Bountiful has a simple, relatable plot that's both heart-wrenching and inspiring: A spry widow living in a cramped apartment with her watchful son and daughter-in-law sneaks off on a secret journey to her beloved hometown of Bountiful. What starts as an ordinary trip becomes a life-changing journey. This hit Broadway production -- a revival of the original 1954 production -- inspired The Wall Street Journal's theater critic Terry Teachout to say, "I've never been more deeply moved by a theatrical production of any kind."

Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music are to be enjoyed and are not antiques to be preserved like museum pieces. Bourne takes this classic ballet off the shelf, dusted it off and presented in a new light to a new audience who will - thanks to his brilliance - fall in love all over again with Tchaikovsky's genius.
The Ahmanson is a great venue and although not the traditional stage for ballets, it served exceptionally well for this story. The parking was convenient but be prepared to have $9 on you (preferably cash) and try to find seating in the Mezzanine level. We went on a Thursday night and traffic from Glendale was not bad. We left 45 minutes before the show and arrived with almost 20 minutes to spare.
