With its 2,000-seat theater, the Ahmanson Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles is capable of housing massive productions and musicals, including premieres of the Broadway-bound Curtains, Chaperone and Leap of Faith (2012 Best Musical Tony nominee). Major touring productions also visit the venue; think War Horse, American Idiot, Spring Awakening and Monty Python’s Spamalot. And top-notch stars, too, have graced its stage, starting with Ingrid Bergman in its inaugural production, Eugene O’Neill’s More Stately Mansions (1967), plus Jack Lemmon, Rosemary Harris, Jon Voight, Faye Dunaway, Richard Chamberlain, Vanessa Redgrave, Katharine Hepburn and so many others.
But the theater isn't slowing down and remains one of the best theaters in Los Angeles as it continues to bring big stars to its stages. Below is more information about Center Theatre Group's current season at the venue.
