Theatre & Film

Do NOT miss out on this stellar Tony Award winning musical that rocked the world to its core with its powerful message fueled by its sensational unforgettable music. Though the story is set in 1968, the story and the socio-political message remain current and true to modern times. This show hasn't been in the Los Angeles area in a long time and won't come back in an even longer time. It last was produced on the Burnight Stage 30 years ago with well-known actor John Corbett as Bukowski.

This show is going to SELL OUT, so don't wait to get your tickets NOW! It's also a great Mother's Day gift idea!

Show Dates - May 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10

There are great discounts for groups. Contact me directly for Group sales info.
