Best Musicals in Los Angeles

Hamilton at Pantages Theater Hollywood

Hamilton

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

Wicked at Pantages Theater Hollywood

Wicked

Forget all that you know about The Wizard of Oz and be transported once again to the magical land of Oz! This time, however, the action takes place way before the arrival of Dorothy and her pooch Toto. THIS is the story of two magically inclined women, one blonde, and one green of skin - and their coming-of-age as the forces of good and (perceived) 'wicked'. Discover this incredible musical phenomenon, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, which explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.

The Book of Mormon at Long Beach Terrace Theater

The Book of Mormon

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and leading New York Times critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", The Book of Mormon's 2011 debut was a pop culture moment. Still enjoying concurrent engagements in London's West End and on Broadway, the bad boy of musical theatre remains a top draw, leaving audiences either outraged or in pain from laughing to this day. Now heading out across the country, don't miss your chance to catch this modern classic. Just be prepared for the lewd, the crude, and downright naughty songs and antics along the way...

Dear Evan Hansen at Cerritos Center

Dear Evan Hansen

Following its hugely successful run at Broadway's Music Box Theater, this darkly comic musical is touring across the country once more. The six-time Tony-winning, poignant and thought-provoking production has received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love, and the search for acceptance, with a score from the composing team behind 2017's Academy Award-winning La-La Land, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul.
