Westside Arts & Culture Steps It Up a Notch
Over the weekend, art patrons around Los Angeles received the 08/09 season mailer for the new Broad Stage in Santa Monica as part of Santa Monica Community College's Madison Campus. It's an interesting season of over twenty-five performances including some that caught our eye like the Grammy-winning all-male A Capella ensemble Chanticleer, the Cirque de Solei-esque Diavolo dance company, the cutting edge new music series Jacaranda, the baroque orchestra Musica Angelica, and well-known jazz man Dave Grusin. Maybe this will help Westsiders' complaints that they can't get to culture because of gridlocked traffic.
It's a 499-seat theatre so prices run on the high end with the cheapest tickets at $29 for some shows (some select concerts are free at Goldstar but are going very, very fast). The theatre also includes a second space with a $20 flat price.
