Drinks and munchies available for purchase. Nothing upscale which I was surprised there wasn't.

Suggest a venue closer to Hollywood would be more appropriate for this type of an event.

What a special evening to have the privilege to see such Broadway stars as Carol Channing, Rita Moreno, Robert Morse and a star studded packed presentation. We had a wonderful time and was glad to see so many people enjoying themselves.

About the Ticket Supplier: Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.)

Back in 1984, at a time of mass fear and confusion about AIDS, a small group of friends in the Los Angeles theatre community came together in an effort to combat the devastating impact the disease was having on their friends and loved ones. Actor/writer/director Michael Kearns and the late writer/director James Carroll Pickett approached producer Susan Obrow and accomplished director David Galligan to create the first Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.). Each S.T.A.G.E. benefit is a unique way for the Los Angeles performing arts community to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS service agencies, such as AIDS Project Los Angeles, while demonstrating love and support for those living with and affected by the disease. Over the past 25 years, S.T.A.G.E. productions have raised more than $5 million dollars to support HIV/AIDS charities throughout Southern California. 25 Years and Still Persevering!
