Buy Tickets $49 - $79 $75 - $105
From Grammy, Emmy and Academy Award-winning Steve Martin and Grammy Award-winning Edie Brickell comes Bright Star, the five-time Tony-nominated, new Broadway musical that The New York Times called "a shining achievement." Directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and '40s. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. Bright Star -- as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful -- is "Broadway's most beautiful show" (WABC). Come see it at Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.

Arthur Miller's Landmark American Dream Drama
Buy Tickets $22 - $33 $42 - $64
Ironically, one of Death of a Salesman's most misquoted lines -- "Attention must be paid!" -- is its most accurate advertisement. For attention must be paid to this iconic drama which packs a timeless emotional punch with its unflinching examination of the American Dream -- not to mention that it was also hailed by The New York Times as "one of the finest dramas in the whole range of the American theater." Death of a Salesman centers around the aging Willy Loman, who, after a lifetime as an unfulfilled traveling salesman, finds himself at the end of his career -- and the end of his tether. Winner of both the Pulitzer and the Tony for Best Play in 1949, Arthur Miller's classic still retains every ounce of its emotional impact to this day. Experience the epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss at Ford's Theatre.
