New Year's Eve 2014, a group of us went to Segerstrom Center to see "Kinky Boots". Another great show. I usually purchase season tickets, depending on the shows playing. I could not get the closer seats I usually like, and I was just as happy as sitting close! I think most of the seats have a pretty good view. It's... More

It's local... modern...classy... and clean. I heart OCPAC especially their student discounts for select shows. You probably have to call or check their twitter page to see if they decide to the student discount for that day because you'll have to show up with a student id and cash for a ticket for the show on the same day.

Visit if you can. Bring a student and get good deals. The different venues allow for grand to intimate productions.

When you attend an event anywhere in Segerstrom Center there is ample paid parking, BUT, if your event is in the Segerstrom Hall (the largest venue) you will want to park off Avenue of the Arts, just south of Sunflower. WHY??? There's a bridge/walkway from the parking structure directly to the 2nd level entry doors. You easily save 10 minutes... More

The backstage and under stage tour was fascinating but be prepared to walk. If you can also get to the Concert Hall - it is equally fascinating with the HUGE pipe organ and how the inner workings/tunnels facilitate the amazing sound.

The acting in this play at the South Coast Rep was nothing short of incredible. I saw it last Saturday night. Too bad my husband was not in town to share it with me. But we will see another play there --very soon!

Segerstrom is a first class center, with a rotating calendar of large and small plays, symphonies and dance. Travelling NY musicals are shown here; as well as smaller dramatic productions (in different theaters). The Symphony Hall has generally good acoustics; and a great organ, making it particularly good for the annual Christmas music.

We went to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall to see Joshua Bell play with the Pacific Symphony. It was their opening night, and Carl St. Clair's 25th anniversary with the Pacific Symphony. Boy do they know how to throw a party! Fantastic music, and the acoustics of the hall are out of this world. Next time we go,... More

There are things I don’t know about Orange County. I know it’s down there somewhere south of us and that it offers nice restaurants, megatheatre complexes, shopping malls and our best-known amusement parks. I’ve even been to Anaheim Stadium, Arrowhead Pond and Los Alamitos, tanned on their beaches and wandered the galleries at Laguna Beach. So you’d think I’d know... More
