9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

The description of this performance was extraordinarily deceptive. I suppose people who are familiar with "Opera a la Carte" probably know better what to expect, but I had to trust Goldstar. Never again.

The venue described is the largest...continued

Bare stage. Piano for accompaniment. Black curtains. No sets. Five artists singing and skipping about the stage. Skipping and skipping and skipping. We skipped off to Little Tokyo for some noodles and imagined the second act.

Very talented troupe.. My friends and I thought it was a great way to follow a nice outing to dinner. I really like the Luckman.. Was only sorry that it was not in the Big theatre where the seating is more comfortable.

Description

Opera a la Carte has been performing rousing and delightful renditions of the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire since its founding in 1970, and is acclaimed as the foremost Gilbert and Sullivan touring repertory company in the country.

Known especially for the authentic style of its productions, Opera a la Carte returns to the Luckman for a black tuxedo concert evening of Gilbert and Sullivan songs. Director Richard Sheldon and the company win over audiences with the sheer enthusiasm of its performances.
