Top Ten Best Attractions in

Los Angeles





Los Angeles Theater



Los Angeles theater has the edge; there are 50,000 actors in LA, 12,000 writers and 5,000 directors. They can't all be on C.S.I. so they hone their craft night after night, in live theaters all over the city. Catch Tony award winning musicals featuring a cast of household names, or take in an outrageous one-act starring that guy whose face you recognize from a hundred commercials.
