The quality of the shows at the Ahmanson is such that even the shows I haven't enjoyed all that much have still been well-produced. While larger than the Mark Taper, I have found that visibility is still quite good from anywhere in the house and I was pleased to note that the box seats are actual box seats--some theaters have done away with those altogether. The programming tends towards the more traditional--big names in terms of both productions and actors--but I always look forward to seeing at least a few shows there every season. I also appreciate that there are adequate bathroom facilities!
Pros: strong programming, easy parking, plenty of bathrooms
Cons: parking is not cheap
