What I love about the Mark Taper is that there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. I should know, because I have sat in the seats traditionally thought to be not good. But it is small enough so that even the ""nose-bleed"" seats are still very close to the stage, and the shape of the theater makes it so that even when you are sitting practically in the wings, you still do not miss any of the action. The quality of the shows tends to be high, though sometimes I have had trouble with the subject matter. Still I appreciate that the Mark Taper tends more towards the non-maintstream and big productions of its counterpart across the way, the Ahmanson. Honestly my only true complaint about the Mark Taper is the bathroom situation. Even with the addition of an external trailer of toilets, the lines for the ladies is still always unacceptable.
Pros: good shows, great views
Cons: too few bathrooms
