Ate at Vespaio near the Broad, walking distance from the Music Center. Can be expensive, or not (we shared a huge salad and tasty pizza, along with apple crisp.)

After the show, we walked to a restaurant called Sugar Fish. The best sushi we've ever eaten.

Description

Set in the desert playground so familiar to Southern Californians, Other Desert Cities will seem right at home on the Taper stage when former Taper Producing Director Robert Egan (Closer, Arcadia) continues his longtime collaboration with Baitz (in Los Angeles, Film Society and Ten Unknowns).
