I love getting discount offers from the Pantages - plus I'd heard good things about this play - so Tuesday we headed south with Mary and Leia to see Finding Neverland.
The thing about driving into LA is you can never be sure how long it will take. The 50-ish mile trip could take 50 minutes or 3 hours and 50 minutes.
So we tend to err on the side of caution and leave extra early - in this case, at 3:30 for an 8 pm show.
Good news: traffic was light. Bad news: 2 1/2 hours to kill before the show started. Solution? Dinner!
While we were enroute, I made online reservations at Musso and Frank's, a Hollywood institution. And while the prices were (very) high, the food was good and the sight-seeing even better. See the waiter standing behind hubby (above)? He's talking to Helena Bonham Carter. Yep, Hollywood royalty.
And the play?
Excellent, as expected.
One day we may see Leia up on that stage.
