LA Theatre Week, a two-week-long celebration of the performing arts, kicked off on March 13, 2023 and has now been extended thru April 2, 2022. With tickets to more than 75 productions starting at just $20, beginning on February 27, 2023, audiences will be able to experience high-caliber shows at prices that democratize access to the best of LA culture.

Theatre Beckons You

With the performing arts and live events still struggling to secure pre-pandemic audience attendance, this initiative supports cultivating the next generation of theatre goers by making the arts more accessible. According to a recent survey by ticketing provider Goldstar, only 25% of respondents in the greater Los Angeles area who attended a live event in the past year saw a theatrical performance; 62% cited tickets being too expensive as a reason they might not attend live events. Many consumers don’t realize that a trip to the theatre can cost the same as a trip to the movies, and with over 45 productions priced at $20 and under, there’s truly a dynamic show for everyone, ranging from comedies, to dramas, to musicals, and more.

“Theatre and the performing arts add meaning, purpose, and connection to our lives,” said Katie Junod, General Manager of presenting company Goldstar. “As many of us live more of our lives digitally, we shouldn’t lose sight of the importance of live performing arts as a way to gather with our community.  While Los Angeles is known for its contribution to film, Theatre Week is the perfect vehicle to remind both new and established audiences of what exceptional stage performances exist locally.”
