Broadway L.A. 2012-2013 Season at the Pantages Theatre


I was tickled pink when our Broadway L.A. 2012-2013 season ticket package showed up a few weeks ago, and thought maybe I should share what is going to be included in the upcoming season at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

The Pantages is located at Hollywood and Vine in Hollywood California, and it has been a Southern California treasure since it opened in 1930. It started as a vaudeville theatre, but it has hosted all manner of shows, operated as a movie theatre, and was even the home of the Academy Award Ceremonies for 10 years. Rumor has it that when Howard Hughes owned the theatre he had his offices on the second floor. Creepy. Anyway, the theatre had a $10 million renovation in 2000, and it is still in marvelous condition.

The Pantages is home to the Broadway L.A. 2012-2013 season, and there are quite a few treats to be had. I am sure they will all be winners, as I had a blast at each of the shows I attended last year. The music, sets and acting were fabulous in each of them. This seasons’ line-up includes:

Book of Mormon, September 5 to November 25

Donny and Marie Christmas in Los Angeles, December 4 to December 23

Peter Pan, January 15 to January 27

Rain – A tribute to the Beatles, January 29 to February 3

Jekyll & Hyde the Musical, February 12 to March 3

Catch Me if You Can, March 12 to March 24

Beauty and the Beast, March 26 to April 7

West Side Story, April 9 to April 14

Priscilla the Musical Sensation, May 28 to June 16

Sister Act, July 9 to July 28

If you do not want to buy the whole season, There are five and seven show packages available, where you get Jekyll & Hyde, Priscilla and Sister Act, and you can fill in the rest of your package with your own choice of shows. It looks like Book of Mormon is no longer part of a package, but it can be added on separately. It really is the crown jewel of the season, so you have to get it.

If you want more tickets information, including show times and prices, check out their web site at

And, of course, I will be writing reviews for each of the shows that I will be attending, so stay tuned to Rex and the Bass.
