Well, we may not be seeing “God of Carnage” after all. Hottix sold out after 1/2 hour. Looking on the website for the date of interest (4/24, Easter Sunday), the balcony shows as $65-$40, but they have all the $40 seats in the rear balcony unavailable for sale. So I have to decide whether I want to shell out $65 for three seats, or try for “day of” tickets in the rear balcony. Neither are great options.
ETA: The Ahmanson Season has been announced. The shows are (one’s I’m interested in are bolded):
- “Bring It On” (Nov. 11 to Dec. 10), loosely inspired by the 2000 cheerleading movie starring Kirsten Dunst and its sequels. The production will kick off its national tour at the Ahmanson, which follows its world premiere staging at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta.
- “Funny Girl” (Feb. 1 to 26), the classic Jule Styne / Bob Merrill musical, will receive a new production directed by Bartlett Sher, a Tony winner for “South Pacific”.
- “American Idiot” (March 14 to April 22, 2012) will make its L.A. debut as part of a national tour.
- “Fela!” (April 27, 2012 to June 3, 2012). Again, this is part of a national tour. Directed and choreographed by Bill T. Jones, the musical is based on the life of Nigerian musician Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
- “War Horse”, (June 20, 2012 to July 22, 2012). The war drama is directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, and features puppetry by the Handspring Puppet Company. Adapted from the book by Michael Morpurgo, the play will bow in New York April 14 at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre.
