Wicked Reviews

"A theatre goer since I was 2, I am now 26, I can not recall being as moved in so many directions as I was while watching Wicked."

- Matt B.


"If I could pick where I had to die, It would be at a performance of Wicked. If I could pick the last words that I heard, It would be the last note of the song "Defying Gravity." This show is utterly amazing!"

- Jen M.


"Wicked is a musical that does best what musicals are supposed to do: transport the audience beyond the world they know. Whether you dream of being Galinda/Glinda, the toast of society, or Elphaba, the beautifully misinterpreted outcast, Oz inspires you. What more is theater for?"

- Hols F.


"Wicked did it all for me. Wit, charm, excitement, romance, surprises, it's all there. If you're going to see a show in New York, see Wicked."

- John H.

Pantages Theatre - CA Information

The Pantages came to life on June 4, 1930, under the leadership of Alexander Pantages, and cost $1.25 million to build (excluding theatrical and projection equipment). Opened as part of the Fox theater chain, the Pantages was one of the first movie houses to be built after the advent of talking pictures and once boasted the most elaborate sound system in the world.

In 1949, Howard Hughes, through RKO Pictures, acquired the theater as part of his national chain of movie houses. It was renamed the RKO Pantages and seating capacity was increased to just over 2,800 patrons. From 1950-1959, the RKO Pantages received its highest profile assignment as it was used as the location for the Academy Awards ceremony.

Pacific Theatres, known at the time for its large inventory of California drive-ins, purchased the Pantages from RKO in December of 1967 (after leasing it for two years beginning in 1965) and operated the aging movie palace until it closed in January 1977.

Unable to fill its seats with motion pictures, Pacific teamed up with the Nederlander Organization and the theater was restored to nearly its original seating capacity (almost 2700) for a new live theater run of Man from La Mancha. Since 1977, the Pantages has been home to live theater. In fact, projection equipment is not currently installed and an apartment and offices on the second floor of the Pantages occupy those areas today.

The Nederlander Organization beautifully restored the theater in the late 90s spending a reported $12 million to bring back all of its palatial opulence. The Pantages reopened, better than ever, in September 2000 for the west coast premiere of Disney's live production of The Lion King and continues to fill its seats with the acclaimed and award winning production.
