Mark Taper Forum

The Taper is one of LA's best venues for topnotch theater. It's also the smallest space at the Music Center, located next to the Ahmanson. Underground parking is $9. There are a couple basic bars inside serving snacks and beverages.

This is my favorite theater to go to. All the seats are good and comfy. The green colors are easy on the eye and it's near the subway in downtown.

Intimate setting, but not enough bathrooms – What I love about the Mark Taper is that there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. I should know, because I have sat in the seats traditionally thought to be not good. But it is small enough so that even the "nose-bleed" seats are still very close to the stage, and the shape of the theater makes it so that even when you are sitting practically in the wings, you still do not miss any of the action. The quality of the shows tends to be high, though sometimes I have had trouble with the subject matter. Still I appreciate that the Mark Taper tends more towards the non-maintstream and big productions of its counterpart across the way, the Ahmanson. Honestly my only true complaint about the Mark Taper is the bathroom situation. Even with the addition of an external trailer of toilets, the lines for the ladies is still always unacceptable.

L.A.'s longtime home of innovative theater offers fresh productions in an intimate space. – In Short
For more than three decades, the Taper has built a deserved reputation for bold, challenging work under the direction of Gordon Davidson. Home to the Center Theatre Group, the Taper offers a subscription series that usually features five to six plays annually. One of three venues that comprise the Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles County, the theater boasts a unique, semicircular stage surrounded by 750 seats.
