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.

Hearing Patricia Morrison, at 95, singing "So In Love," a song she debuted in 1948 was worth the price of admimission. Adding Betty Garret, Charlotte Rae, Karen Morrow, Constance Towers made it a wonderful evening. Only complaint--and a minor...continued

This annual event is always fun to attend and the money is for a worthy cause. This year, as usual, had its share of highs and lows but overall it was a great (and long) evening for anyone who loves Broadway musicals.

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!
