The Pantages is a beautiful theatre but the one thing is – the bathroom line for both the men & women is insane – especially during a show intermission. I have no idea how miraculously everyone manages to use the bathroom & get back to their seats in the span of a 15-minute intermission but I’ve seen it be done. It doesn't take away from the beauty, but something worth noting! 

It’s in a very tourist-y part of Hollywood, so taking an Uber or Lyft helps if  you are able to (that way you can avoid the surrounding $15 structures and dodging tourist vans). It also means you can hit up the bar before the show without any worry.

It’s fun to see a production and dress up a little. This city certainly isn’t Broadway, so you’ll see people in LA casual attire, but it’s not like I attend theatre everyday, so I had a good time dressing in something nice. 


This theatre is BEAUTIFUL. Perfect for a show and night out in Hollywood. Located in the heart of Hollywood, there are lots of restaurants and bars near by. Just saw The Book of Mormon here and it was such a wonderful experience! 


I have been to the Pantages several times for various theatrical shows including Phantom of the Opera and Dirty Dancing.  The theater itself is absolutely stunning!  Great lighting and sound system.  Parking is a hassle and will cost you around $20.  Be aware that if you grab a cocktail before the can’t take it into the actual theater.  FYI- You can frequently find discounted tickets on Groupon and Goldstar.  


Pantages may be the only theater to regularly catch touring Broadway productions, but it really earns that distinction. The auditorium is just incredible, especially the amazing chandelier that covers much of the ceiling; for both that reason and sightlines, I prefer sitting in the balcony. The lobby, too, is an amazing—sometimes too tightly packed—collection of gold and silver Art Deco sculptures and details.

The Pantages is one of the most beautiful theaters in Los Angeles.  Seeing a show here is a must for both travelers and locals.  They consistently have top-tier shows that are sure to wet the appetite of the most avid theater-goer.
