The Lion King, long-time ruler of the Broadway and L.A. box offices, roars back into Hollywood as a limited-engagement treat for the holidays. Tony-winning director Julie Taymor made theatrical history when she transformed the beloved Disney movie into one of the most thrilling spectacles ever to grace the stage, with brilliant puppetry and majestic choreography and costumes. And as impressive as the visuals are, the score is equally thrilling, featuring Elton John and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" and "Circle of Life." Indeed, the musical's first appearance on Broadway was more than an impressive debut: Newsweek called it "a landmark event in entertainment." The Pantages became home to the Pridelands for a long and successful run beginning in 2000, and now a new generation has the chance to get swept up in its magic. See it now before it ends on January 12. Learn More

Run, don't walk , to this ab-fab show. The Ruskin has another hit on it's hands, as this very dark play holds your attention throughout, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Acting was superior, with Zach Book and Chris Mulkey doing their finest work. Jaimi Paige, who I had seen in The Collector here at the Ruskin, played another complicated and haunting role. I can't say enough about this so real, explosive, sad family story about lives in rural Appalachia (although it could be anywhere). Kudos to all connected with it!!
A Southern Gothic tale of one family, trapped by its own tradition. The obsession with an American icon brings hope of salvation for them, as they continue to invest in the dream that American pop culture promises. Helmed by award-winning director Karen Landry and starring veteran TV and film actor Chris Mulkey, as well as Jaimi Paige, Robert Mollohan, Kathleen Parker and Zach Book, Jesse Boy is a world premiere sure to make an imprint on the Los Angeles theatre scene.
