THESE TWO BLOCK-BUSTER SHOWS ARE NOT TO BE MISSED!
The Historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood
Frieze - Bringing in the Valley's Harvest - Lobby of El Portal
In a Valley filled with residents who make their living in the entertainment industry, it should come as no surprise that this vibrant collection of Los Angeles suburbs should be the home to one of America's largest collections of live theatres. The largest group of these performance houses in the exciting NoHo Arts District, centered near Lankershim Boulevard and Magnolia Street.
There has never been a better time to celebrate Valley theatre. Two terrific shows are winding down sold out performances in our city. Both are simply great!
The first "must see" show is a brilliant musical entitled CESAR AND RUBEN, being held over at the NoHo Arts Center. My wife and I attend theater on a regular basis at all levels, and this wonderful production about Cesar Chavez and the LA Times journalist Ruben Salazar is very simply A Splendid Experience. Playwright and actor Ed Begley Jr. deserves some sort of medal for this terrific show!

By now, you should have heard the buzz about the "awesome" Valley production called THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES. It's a joyous, fast paced romp of the music of the '50s and '60s. The Wonderettes are just now winding down over a year of sold out performances at the historic El Portal Theatre in the heart of the NoHo Arts District. Don't miss this great show.
