The Pantages is my Favorite place to see a show. The LA metro will let you off right across the street. The history and architecture of the building is breathtaking.

Stepping into the Pantages Theatre is a step into everything grand about the Hollywood Experience. It is a MUST for each trip to LA! The hottest musical "Once" did not disappoint and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The exquisite decor and chiseled grander that engulfs this setting is sheer elegance. No wonder may premiers... More

I'm not going to review the show, "Once" although that was why we were there. It was just okay for various reasons. Luckily for me, I've been able to see several shows there over the last few years, and I'm looking forward to many more. I always try and start with the bad stuff then get to the good stuff.... More

Have been to the Pantages many times to enjoy Broadway musicals with the family. It's a gorgeous interior the beautifully carved ceilings take you back in time. Always look forward to returning.

Took my girlfriend to closing night show of "Once". Sound was so offensively loud to start - 4 songs? - it compromised our hearing (we're in our 40s) so much that we were unable to discern the dialogue of the following play. We were so disappointed and BORED by this mistakenly adapted "musical" of such a brilliant film, we actually... More

I have seen several plays at this beautiful theater. The best event was seeing The Steep Canyon Rangers with Steve Martin. What a wonderful group. The inside of this theater has been revitalized and is beautiful. Staff could be a bit friendlier .

We took our son to see a touring Broadway Performance of Wicked. What a wonderful venue. The historical legacy, beautiful decor and talented cast made for a very memorable experience. Worth the ticket price or just stop by the view the theater when it is open.
