This Art Deco vintage theatre was the perfect space to rent for our burlesque show. The bar area was amazing and the dressing rooms were spacious. 10 out of 10! Stage, lighting, audio equipment. Everything was top notch!

Artsy warehouse theater that is set up well for live performances. There are columns, but they didn't bother us---they seems to add to the industrial ambiance. There is free parking across the street at night, which is great for audiences.

For a live event, this new yorky storefront studio space is great! We had our comedy show here and it was the perfect sized space for us. Had an intimate feel, and stylish. Good space!

Performance in this gallery-type space was perfect. Because it is enclosed, we could completely control the light and the space was intimate. We did have to cover the front windows to keep out some light, but the host was very helpful.

Pros and Cons of Performances in Los Angeles

With its thriving live music scene and network of creative professionals, Los Angeles is seemingly one of the best places in the United States to host a performance event. But there are a few drawbacks to consider before you take the plunge, including LA’s terrible traffic and high costs.

Advantages

  • Cultural diversity
    Los Angeles is a cultural melting pot and home to people from all religious and cultural backgrounds. This means you’ll have a diversity of people to draw on to make your performance event happen, no matter what genre it’s in.
  • Diversity of venues
    From fairytale-like houses to contemporary studios and ornate Spanish churches, there’s no shortage of performance spaces in Los Angeles to host your event.

  • Sunny weather
    Even if your performance is being held indoors, Los Angeles’ sunny weather adds to the city’s appeal and gives prospective audience members yet another reason to visit.

Disadvantages

  • High costs of living
    Los Angeles has an incredibly high cost of living, which means hosting a performance here may cost more than it would in other major U.S. cities.
  • High costs of location fees
    The city’s property prices are also very high, so you can expect to pay more for a performance venue in Los Angeles than in other parts of California.
  • Traffic
    Getting from one side of Los Angeles to the other can be a slow process during rush hours, which is something to keep in mind when considering the location of your performance space.
  • Parking
    Parking in the center of the city is not only difficult to find but costly and something to consider before booking a performance space.
  • Crime
    While some parts of Los Angeles are very safe to walk around at night, others have high crime rates and may be best to avoid.
