I love seeking out unusual theatre companies for plays I've never seen before. In Santa Monica I found a really small theatre that's literally hidden in an alley. City Garage is right next to the Third Street Promenade with all its commercial noise -- you'll have to look hard to find it, but it's worth the hunt. They specialize in really artistic productions with a European flavor -- you might say avant garde. I've seen a number of shows there, most recently a hilarious production of "The Bald Soprano." City Garage performs only a few plays a year, so be sure to call ahead before going.
