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 saw the play "Wicked" at the Pantages d was Theater. We were so impressed with the Building. It added to the experience of the wonderful play. Looking forward to going back for another show in the future.

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.

We went to see Once at the Pantages, and it was a fantastic experience. It's a stunning art deco theatre, in splendid condition. We were sat in row W in the stalls, which had a great view, but it didn't look as if anywhere had a bad view. As ever with theatres, drinks and snacks were expensive, so you might... More

Saw "Once" its last day in LA. Interesting performance- where the audience becomes part of the on stage bar patrons (at least at intermissions) Always great to visit the Pantages in its historic spendor. Were interested in season tickets. Robert Ramos at the lobby stand= most helpful. And followed up via phone- After a couple calls- we bought season tickets... More

I enjoyed watching "Wicked" at the Pantages Theatre. The site lines were perfect from my seat. The area outside the theatre is a little shady, thus be careful. I look forward to seeing another show at the Pantages sometime soon.

Beautiful theater, great acoustics, and right across from a Metro subway stop. I love The Pantages. It's on Hollywood blvd., so you can see some of stars names in the sidewalk there. The show was Once, which we loved.

I have seen three previous performances at the Pantages and enjoyed them both very much. i have seen numerous musicals throughout the years. The musical "Once" is not suited for this theater, and the Pantages Theater takes no responsibility for patrons not being able to hear. There are numerous complaints, and it is shocking to me that I could puchase... More

My wife and I, along with friends, saw 'Once' at the Pantages on Friday night...was able to have a beer ONSTAGE just before the performance...the performance was absolutely spectacular...the thing that made it UNFORGETTABLE was that, after the curtain call and standing ovation, we were told that we have a surprise in store...Glen Hansard himself then came out to thunderous...
