The West Side's most glittery theatrical venue is home to a good-sized main stage, the Gil Cates Theater, and the cozier Skirball Kenis Theater. The company offers a mix of new work and local premieres, frequently with big-name (though sometimes second-tier) Hollywood talent. Special nights include Wine Down Sundays, Lounge Fridays and Talk Back Tuesdays, where a special drinks or coffee reception is held before the performance. Saturday mornings often feature great kid-oriented shows.

First show at the Geffen Playhouse was American Buffalo in 2013. The atmosphere was warm, the neighborhood (new to me then) was accommodating, the wine was free, and the show/set were incredible. A few years passed before I returned to catch Bad Jews. Again, I encountered a great show, a welcoming staff, a quick and easy ticketing process, and a parking situation that didn't end up costing me half the price of my ticket. I am happy to confirm that this year, when I recently went to see Long Day's Journey into Night, all my expectations were met again. The show was as great as it was long and dark and the Geffen continued to impress with its high levels of care and ease.
