8 Must-See Theather Shows to Watch in L.A

Los Angeles is known for its music, film, and television industries, but it also beckons entertainment lovers with theater and Broadway productions that hail the talent of famous performers and producers. This month, and for the rest of the year, you can catch several award-winning productions from funny to downright jaw-dropping. Here’s a list of shows we can’t wait to attend in 2020!

1. Book of Mormon - NOW SHOWING!

Winner of 9 Tony Awards, Broadway musical “Book of Mormon” returns
to Los Angeles as part of its massive nationwide tour. If you haven’t seen this outrageous comedy musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon newbies who are sent on a mission to a place that's just about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get, Uganda, don’t miss out on it this month at the Ahmanson Theater now until March 31.

2. Hamilton - OPENING MARCH 12th!

Returning to Los Angeles this month, “Hamilton” is
the biggest Broadway show since “The Book of Mormon.” Written by Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Hamilton” features a remarkable score and a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today. “Hamilton” goes live at the Pantages Theater on March 12 for six months.

5. My Fair Lady - OPENING JUNE 12th

Called “the perfect musical,” this is a magical and timeless classic that you’ll certainly want to see when it premieres June 12th at the Dolby Theater. “My Fair Lady” was nominated for several Tony Awards in 2018 and is now taking to the road on a North American tour. Based on Shaw's play and Pascal's movie "Pygmalion," with book music and lyrics by Lerner and Loewe, “My Fair Lady” is triumphant. Psst… when it was adapted to film, starring Audrey Hepburn, it won eight Academy Awards and numerous revivals.
