A weekend of LA theatre including American Idiot!

Want to get your hands on a pair of tickets to not one, not two, but THREE of the hottest shows coming to town? ExperienceLA has teamed up with our partners at Center Theatre Group to give away a three-pack of tickets to: American Idiot, American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose, and Waiting for Godot! One lucky winner will receive one pair of tickets (that's two tickets per show) to each show on the following dates:
Described as "a wonderfully raucous and gorgeously wrought rock opera" (The New York Times), American Idiot puts the raw emotions and spirit of a generation captured by Green Day's Grammy Award-winning album by the same title front and center in a highly theatrical and thoroughly satisfying rock opera. American Idiot opens March 13 and runs through April 22 at the Ahmanson Theatre. 

American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose is the latest Culture Clash extravaganza. Turning theatre and history on its ear, the nation's premiere Chicano-Latino performance troupe presents the story of Juan Jose, who receives help from a rogue's gallery of American luminaries like Teddy Roosevelt, Sacagawea, Jackie Robinson and Bob Dylan as he crams for the U.S. Citizenship exam. The show opens this Friday, March 9 and runs through April 1 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot is widely recognized as the most significant play of the 20th Century.  Together for the first time, Alan Mandell and Barry McGovern, two of the most distinguished interpreters of Samuel Beckett's work, delightfully debate the meaning of life and the absurdities of human behavior. Waiting for Godot opens March 14 and runs through April 22 at the Mark Taper Forum.

Tickets for each show start at $20 and can be purchased by visiting the Center Theatre Group web site or by calling 213-972-4400.
