Kevin and I got away for a few hours to enjoy the theatre over the weekend. We went to watch the matinee showing of Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder at Ahmanson Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles. I can totally see how this show won the 2014 Tony Award for the Best Musical — it’s dark but painfully hilarious, and if you’re a fan of Book of Mormon and other shows that’s not afraid to, you know, “go” there, you’ll probably enjoy this one too.
Before the show, we stopped at Pinot Grill, a restaurant that sits just outside Ahmanson, for a quick bite. Kevin had the soup of the day (potato and celery soup which was delicious), along with quiche and I had a good old burger.
We love the threatre and although LA is not the West End or the Broadway, we are thankful that a good show like this one eventually makes its way to the West Coast. We are limited to what we can watch (I wish I can just to go the Theatre District and watch something new ever night) but this will definitely do.
