I really like the Ahmanson Theatre. I prefer it to the Pantages when seeing a Broadway musical show in Los Angeles, because their acoustics/sound system is much better. Also, the Ahmanson offers more discount tickets and opportunities than the Pantages does. For example, there is HotTix, which can get you a seat to any show for only $20. I did this for their latest production, "The Drowsy Chaperone," and I got to sit in the orchestra! Full price would have been $80-$90. This is a great venue and I highly recommend it.
