Like Michelle Pfeiffer, Pantages Theater is a part of Hollywood that has aged gracefully. This art deco theater may be unassuming on the outside, but its interior (check out the ceiling!) is breathtaking.
If you are seeing a show here, I would suggest springing for the middle seats. The theater is pretty wide, and we were seated on the far left, so the actors (we saw Wicked) were not singing towards us or even making much eye contact with our side of the audience. It was still a good show, but I feel that you need to sit in the middle to get the full impact.
Upcoming shows include How the Grinch Stole Christmas the Musical, Riverdance, and Stomp.
