Iyanla Vanzant: This Is Your Life!
An inspirational speaker, Emmy winner, holder of the keys to five cities, New York Times best-seller, and graduate of law school, Iyanla Vanzant is a force to reckon with. Her words motivate audiences to pursue their dreams, reassess their lives, and make the changes necessary to find happiness. The host of Iyanla: Fix My Life on the Oprah Winfrey Network, she draws from her own life experiences—losing a mother at age 3, becoming a teenage mother, experiencing marital abuse—to help people reach past their regrets and rediscover their purpose. Winfrey herself has said she's "amazed at Iyanla's gift of being able to cut through the layers of people's pain and their baggage."
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Designed by San Francisco architect Timothy L. Pflueger and built in 1931, the Paramount Theatre remains a pristine example of art-deco design. For a decade it shone as a grand movie palace, but then it fell into neglect and wallowed in its popcorn-butter tears. A dramatic 1973 makeover, however, launched it onto the National Registry of Historic Places and returned it to its former prominence in the public eye. Today film screenings, live cultural events, and speakers as varied as Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Jeb Bush, and the crew of NPR's Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me! fill the historic theater's calendar.
