It boasts an eclectic variety of theater spaces to suit all styles of performance art, as well as an extensive network of industry professionals to work behind the scenes.

Theater Space Options in Los Angeles

From sprawling mansions to intimate studios, you can find inspiring theater spaces in Los Angeles that meet your requirements.

  • Homes
    Whether you’re after a stone chateau or a mid-century mansion, Los Angeles offers a diverse choice of homes that can be utilized as theater spaces. They offer both indoor and outdoor settings that can serve as your stage, as well as plenty of rooms where your performers can get ready.
  • Warehouses

  • Studios

Pros and Cons of Performances in Los Angeles

Los Angeles’ entertainment industry and network of experienced professionals are among the advantages of hosting a theater event here. But the high living costs and heavy traffic are worth considering.

Advantages

  • Established entertainment industry
    Los Angeles already has a well-established entertainment industry, which extends from film to theater and live music. This means you already have prospective audience members who are willing to pay for live performances.

  • Fabulous weather
    It’s no secret that Southern California enjoys some of the best weather in the United States and Los Angeles is no exception. It’s an ideal place to hold both indoor and outdoor theater events, no matter the time of year.
  • Diversity of venues
    L.A. theater venues range from manor estates to industrial-style warehouses and historic Hollywood homes, meaning you can find the space that suits your design aesthetic.
  • Experienced professionals
    From sound engineers to stage crew, Los Angeles is home to an extensive network of industry professionals who can make your theater performance a reality.
  • Easy international connections
    Got actors or stage crew flying in from out-of-state? With its huge network of flights, Los Angeles International Airport makes it easy for them to get to and from your theater space.

Disadvantages

  • High costs of rentals
    The city’s property prices are exceptionally high, so you may pay more for your theater space in Los Angeles than in other places in Southern California.

  • High costs of living
    Not only are the city’s rental prices high, but the general costs of living are also more than you might be used to in other parts of the United States.
  • Traffic
    When looking for your theater space, consider how easy it will be to get there based on the city’s notorious traffic. The major transport corridors are known to creep along during rush hours when it can take far longer than expected to get from A to B.
  • Parking
    Parking in the city can be a frustrating task, so it might be worth finding an L.A. performance venue with private parking to save you any hassles.
  • Crime
    While some parts of Los Angeles are incredibly safe, others aren’t. So take this into account when looking for theater spaces outside of the main entertainment and nightlife areas.
