Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

When: March 8 – April 9, 2023

During its Off-Broadway run in 2021, our theater critic in New York gave the play five stars and praised it as “a work of stunningly sustained concentration.”

Hermosa Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade

When: March 11 

Where: Hermosa Beach

What: Although it may not be a lush emerald shore, Hermosa Beach brings a touch of Irish charm to the seaside town each year for its St. Patrick’s Day parade. The festivities include bagpipers, marching bands, automobiles adorned in green, and even festive pups from the Irish Setters Club of Southern California. These attractions can all be seen on the seven-block route, which commences near City Hall on Valley Drive, proceeds westward on Pier Avenue, and culminates at the intersection of Hermosa Avenue and 10th Street.

George Condo: People Are Strange

When: April 22

Where: West Hollywood

What: Even without any context, the strikingly unconventional and sizable paintings by neo-expressionist George Condo are undoubtedly a sight to behold. However, we are especially intrigued by their exhibition in Los Angeles (which pays homage to The Doors’ iconic song) as it signifies the inaugural showcase at Hauser & Wirth’s new West Hollywood location, formerly a vintage car showroom. This particular exhibit piques our curiosity due to its location in the Arts District and the gallery’s grand size.
