Hats! The Musical
The show Whoopi Goldberg called "really magnificent" contains fun, friendship, freedom, fulfillment, and fitness. These are the five missions of the Red Hat Society, a social organization for women 50 and older. In Hats! The Musical, the 49.999-year old protagonist encounters some of the group’s liveliest members just when she’s on the cusp of the milestone number she’s dreading. The ladies dance and sing along to effervescent tunes penned by Grammy-, Golden Globe-, and Tony-winning songwriters such as Melissa Manchester, Pam Tillis, and Sharon Vaughan as the birthday girl learns to embrace her new age.
California Theatre of the Performing Arts
A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
