Center Theatre Group opened Dame Edna’s Glorious Goodbye The Farewell Tour at the Ahmanson Theatre this past weekend, and there are performances running through March 15. Here, she gives some “Dame Approved L.A. Theatre Etiquette,” which we find perfectly coincides with our own most recent blog post: Top 10 Theater-Going Tips!

LA Phil presents three days straight of Late Masterworks of Mozart & Bruckner featuring the last pieces composed by the two masters, as well as a breathtaking evening on Tuesday of Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery all at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Los Angeles Master Chorale presents Bach: St. Matthew Passion with two performances over the weekend featuring an impressive array of soloists, baroque orchestra Musica Angelica, and the L.A. Children’s Chorus for this magnificent masterpiece. Come an hour early for a pre-show talk with Music Director Grant Gershon and KUSC Host Alan Chapman.

REDCAT opened The Wooster Group Early Shaker Spirituals: A Record Album Interpretation last week and performances run until February 1. Catch this powerhouse ensemble and their elaborately constructed interpretation featuring (but not limited to) Cynthia Hedstrom, Elizabeth LeCompte, Frances McDormand, and Suzzy Roche. Additionally, enjoy this glimpse into the production.

Ongoing daily throughout the week and all the way through to March is the ASCAP: One-Hundred Years and Beyond exhibit in the Library of Congress Ira Gershwin Gallery at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Free and open to the public!

See you at the Center!
