Went in June to see Humans . The play was very disappointing but the theatre is great. They are undergoing major construction right now but you can still valet or self park on the premises. The sound system in the theatre is fantastic.

The Play-Musical "Soft Power" opened at the Ahmanson in May 2018. Created by two Tony Award winners, David Henry Hwang and Jeanine Tesori, much was expected. To quote a line from the script, "two halves don't add up to one" for this show. Hwang delivers...More

The theater seats about 2000 people. It is not very wide but it is deep so sit close to the front if you can. The best thing is the 9 dollar parking. Great price for downtown. When heading back to your car, skip the long...More

We hadn’t been here for close to 20 years. It’s still a great theatre with comfortable seats and good sightlines. But looking up to the top level it looks awfully high and I would avoid. Good parking very cheap ($9) underneath. Recommended

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
