Geffen Playhouse

Map & Directions 10886 Le Conte Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90024


Merchant's Description

Founded by theater, film and television luminary Gil Cates, the Geffen Playhouse has been an integral part of Los Angeles theater since opening its doors in 1995. Noted for its intimacy and celebrated for its commitment to the development of new plays, the Geffen Playhouse continues to present a body of work that garners national recognition. Named in honor of entertainment mogul and philanthropist David Geffen, who made the initial donation to the theater, the organization is currently helmed by Artistic Director Randall Arney, Managing Director Ken Novice and Chairman of the Board Frank Mancuso. An active member of the community, the Geffen Playhouse has a groundbreaking education and outreach program that targets students, seniors and everyone in between who otherwise would not have access to live theater.

    Their season usually has a diverse mix of plays/shows, so I suggest season tickets (or even one of their lesser packages) if you are into theater or just want to expand your horizons. Although the front row is a great seat in some theaters, it's virtually on top of the stage at this venue, so prime tickets are a few rows back.

    Mind the parking hour times. Almost had to stay the night in Westwood to pick my vehicle up.

    one of my favorite venues to catch a play. rush tickets are released 30 min before curtain for $37, $10 for students. park in the trader joe's structure for $5-6 and cut through the city target alley.

    3Twenty Wine Lounge is a sponsor on Sundays. Be sure to introduce yourself to Edgar. You will be happy you did. They are on LaBrea and Third, 90036. Enjoy!
