East West Players
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We attended the One Night Only event at the East West Players home theatre downtown and were delighted. The venue is just the perfect size, and the building itself has its own history. But more than that, this company gives a voice to actors that might not be cast in mainstream venues, and we found that to be both refreshing and a little sad that this happens to be true. This particular show showcased young Asian talent from the area, and the quality of the performances was truly over the top. We noticed in the program that season tickets were highly affordable and this year's line up of shows promises to be excellent. Give East West Players a look!

I've been following the East West Players since the 80's so this tells you how long the company has been around and they go back even further. The performances in the old Union Church provides intimacy with the audience as every seat in this small theater, including the balcony, offers a good view. Glitzy props are not visible here, just the basics and a good story is all that's needed.

They offer a some discounts and perks so be sure to do your homework. You will feel some of the inconveniences from a building built in 1923...narrow stairways and cozy bathrooms, but it's worth the price for entertainment in a National Register of Historical Places.

I was invited to see this play. Knew nothing about it or the history behind it. It was wonderfull. It never had a dull moment. The pace of the stoty was amazing. The actors where very nice and you can actually talk to them if you wait outside. It really was a great cultural experiance.

I attended the production of Three Year Swim Club at the East West Players Theater in Los Angeles. It was delightful. It is 1 1/2 hours long. The acting is superb. The theater is very intimate. I really loved the message that comes so clearly through to the audience about "Reaching for the Stars" and never give up. It is based on a true story and the actual people portrayed did do wonderful things and achieved what they set their minds to accomplish. It is certainly a treat to see this production.
