Calling all ghosts and goblins! Check out the fun we had at the LAArtsOnline Halloween Costume Ball! Yes, a grand time was had by all. This year we partnered with Killer Shrimp in Marina Del Rey and it was killer indeed!

Guests began arriving after 8pm. They were able to catch the end of the big World Series game and grab delicious bites in the downstairs bar and then make their way upstairs to enjoy the DJ and dancing. Our LAArtsOnline team had such a hard time finalizing the winners of the costume contest – our guests did not disappoint with their creativity.

A huge shout-out and congrats to the amazing winners! “Prince Harry and Megan,” Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer from Scarface, the “Pac Man gamers,” “the Goddesses,” The Shining twins, Heal the Bay gang, the giant unicorn, the “Bright Idea,” Dawn of the Dead duo, a “Beauty School Dropout,” and “The Money Man” and his “Gold Digger” wife!

Big thanks to Brett and Killer Shrimp for hosting us and continued thanks to DJ Shark and Emmy-winning talk show host Tava Smiley for joining us every year. Cheers!

ICE RINK AT PERSHING!

  • By ASHLEY HALVERSON

Calling all ice skaters ~ amateur and pro alike!!  It’s getting to be that special time of year ~ when the outdoor rinks pop up and we can all get our skating fix under the stars.  Set your sights on Downtown Los Angeles because the Bai Holiday Ice Rink in Pershing Square will return for its 21stanniversary season!  This is the biggest and best outdoor rink in our fine city and it’s the perfect place to play all season long with a slew of very cool (no pun intended) planned special events.

Fans of LA’s favorite Wicked musical will be especially interested in attending the Icebreaker Opening Celebration which will feature cast members, choreographed skaters, special guests and other fun surprises.  Superfans can also come on Wicked Wednesdays and skate along to songs from the cast album.

The ice may be cold but the music will be hot on Thursday nights as DJ Howly takes control and spins your favorite jams. And, if anyone is curious about curling ~ on select Sunday mornings the Hollywood Curling Club will host beginner curling lessons so you too can try your hand at this Olympic sensation sport!  It may not snow here in Los Angeles but we sure know how to chill!

Just in time for the holidays here comes Dixie Longate with her hilarious traveling Tupperware Party!  If you haven’t had the pleasure yet to attend one of her parties then please accept this open invitation and get yourself a seat to this strictly limited engagement at the lovely Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Dixie’s Tupperware Party has been going strong for 11 seasons now and let me tell you she is a sassy salesgal.  Her outrageous tales will amuse you and her wisdom of all things Tupperware will intrigue you!  Yes she really is demonstrating and selling Tupperware products ~ but with a flair like no other!  And yes you will probably be somehow utterly convinced that you need that nifty little gadget, cute canister or classic bowl set in your collection.  Stay alert because just like at any other Tupperware party there are games and giveaways so don’t be afraid to participate!

This is definitely some of the most fun that you will ever have at a show and likely also one of the funniest shows that you will see this year.  Please note that some … okay most of the humor is very adult – best to bring your bestie and leave the kiddos at home.

AT Chasens!

On November 15, 1949 in Hollywood, an up-and-coming young actress met a handsome movie star for dinner at a legendary restaurant and it was a blind date that would change the course of history.

“In A Booth at Chasen’s – The Real Life Romance of Ron and Nancy Regan” is a new two-character musical that brings to life their timeless and enduring love story.  Though their mutual attraction was immediate for Nancy Davis, a 29 year old starlet, and Ronald Reagan, the actor and president of the Screen Actors Guild, the play recreates their actual two year courtship using original songs and lyrics to tell their story – the gossip columns, the threat of Communism, Nancy playing hard to get and Ron in no rush to the altar.   To this day, their marriage continues to be analyzed and scrutinized – were they a true power couple or was the relationship simply old-fashioned?

The play was created by two-time Academy Award winner and Tony Nominee, Al Kasha (a Hollywood insider), award-winning songwriter Phil Swann and noted author Sam Bennett.  “In A Booth at Chasen’s” is directed by Kay Cole who pays strict attention to historic details particularly the eponymous booth from the famed Chasen’s Restaurant, the scene of many a Hollywood escapade.   Other star power behind the show opening November 9th at the El Portal Theatre is producer Ron Dante, best known for producing Broadway shows Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Children of a Lesser God.
