Ahmanson Theatre 2022/23
We begin in October with the West End phenomenon, 2:22 – A Ghost Story. This supernatural thriller has astounded audiences in London, and will keep you on the edge of your seats. We are bringing back the sensational Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations over the holidays, a show that made a mark in Los Angeles when we premiered it before its triumphant Broadway run. In the spring of 2023, the eagerly awaited revival of the Tony Award®-winning musical The Secret Garden blossoms again, directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Warren Carlyle (The Music Man). Then, Diane Paulus (Waitress) and Jeffrey L. Page's rousing and boldly revised 1776 will come to the Ahmanson after its Broadway premiere. And another Tony Award-winning play will be added to the season—the acclaimed A Soldier's Play, directed by Kenny Leon and starring Norm Lewis.
Two more productions for the Ahmanson season will be announced soon. Check back for updates.
