Ahmanson Theatre

135 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Seats (approximate): 2133

Since its inception in 1967, the Ahmanson Theatre has presented a wide variety of dramas, musicals, comedies and classic revivals, including 11 plays by Neil Simon (five world premieres). The Ahmanson has been represented on Broadway as a co-producer of the award-winning Smoke Joe's Café, August Wilson's The Piano Lesson and Two Trains Running, and Frank Loesser's The Most Happy Fella. Initially under the artistic direction of Robert Fryer, then Gordon Davidson and now Michael Ritchie, the Ahmanson has played host to a veritable who's who in the entertainment world from Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Rex Harrison, to James Earl Jones, Lynn Redgrave and Cherry Jones. A unique, state-of-the-art 1995 reconfiguration provides the Ahmanson with variable seating capacity from 1,600 - 2,000, allowing the theatre to accommodate a greater variety of plays, from the intimate to the spectacular. It currently enjoys the largest theatrical subscription base on the West Coast in a year-round season from early fall through late summer.
