The first weekend was sold out – so be sure to purchase tickets ASAP. Mark Swed of The LA Times attended the opening and wrote “The opening night was sold out, and rightfully so for a town that thinks of itself as 21st century to the max,” adding that after each of the three pieces in the program, “the world looked slightly more inhabitable and L.A. a little better poised to make a difference.”
