    Not a bad seat in the house, great sound quality and easy to navigate. Lots of seating outdoors before the show begins to people watch and enjoy DTLA.

    Saw the Curious Incident of the Dog here (great show!), efficient and spacious. Come early and grab some drinks in the outside plaza right in front. Makes for a beautiful night.

    restaurant is kinda pricey outside, but food and wine are great and adds to the experience to going to see live theater, or you can bring a picnic dinner and eat outside before the show

    This is my favorite big theatre in LA! Check out the Pinot grill in the court yard for your pre-show meal and drink. A very pleasant surprise.

    Mo-chica on 7th and Grand. Absolutely 5 star Peruvian food. Best paella ever and easy to get in and out before show! A must!

    Wonderful theatre. If from out of town see if they have any Hot Tixx. They're in the balcony but still have a descent view.

    Looking for your "hot tix" seats in the theater? Go through a door leading toward a men's or women's restroom (depends on the side of the theater). There's a "fork in the road" before you go too far!

    Hot tix, which are generally in the balcony boxes for $20/each (no service charge) are hard to beat for the price. Tickets go on sale 3 wks. before show's run.

    Eat at the Grand Market before, then have a drink on the outdoor plaza because you can't drink inside the theater seats.

    All seats have a good view because the theater is not very large. However for comfort get a box seat

    Typically they sell $20 with no additional service charge Balc tickets (Hot Tix) on the day of the show at the Box Office, as long as they're not sold out... Pretty Sweet...

    20 rush seats 2 hours before box office. Get here a little earlier, otherwise line will be killer.

    Get to the Music Center early. You'll have less hassle with parking & you'll have a chance to get a snack before the show.
