Mark Your Calendar! 5 Shows to See Before They Close in October
October means Halloween-mania in Los Angeles, with spooky festivities like Halloween Horror Nights, Haunted Hayrides, Knott’s Scary Farm, and Haunted Houses providing plenty of seasonal fun and frights.
But there’s more to October than having masked creatures scream in your face. Here are a few productions that you won’t want to miss this month.
A View from the Bridge at Center Theatre Group’s Ahmanson Theatre
After sold-out, award-winning runs on Broadway and London’s West End, Ivo Van Hove’s rawly intimate revival of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge is stunning LA audiences during its current production at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Macbeth at LA Opera
