"11 Best New Year's Eve events in Los Angeles!" exclaims the Daily News. A scrumptious and sumptuous complimentary buffet supper starts off the event, then "on with the show!" as internationally acclaimed Actors' Repertory Theatre brings you a highly entertaining, family-friendly Rudie-DeCarlo musical revue, with prizes, sing-a-long songs, dancing in the aisles, humor and other delights culled from 6 decades of beloved Santa Monica Playhouse productions. From finger-snapping 40s jazz to foot-stompin' country rock, Jewish patter songs to romantic ballads, this show has it all! Add champagne, non-alcoholic sparkling cider, hats, tiaras, leis, noisemakers, streamers and surprises and you have a not-to-be-missed New Year's Eve celebration. "A company that knows what its audience expects from an evening of theatre!" hails L.A. TIMES. The 9:30 show features a midnight meet 'n' greet with the cast. The 6:00 show is perfect for the entire family to celebrate New Year's Eve together and still get the kids to bed at a reasonable hour. Directed by Arthur R. Tompkin, this year's annual New Year's Eve event features Andrea Adnoff, Jacob Cooper, Chris DeCarlo, Tiffany Haile, Evelyn Rudie, Elena Rust, Berkeley Sanjay and Raeva Vasisht, with songs by Rudie, Matthew Wrather and Emery Bernauer. Playhouse New Year's Eve festivities are among the most popular in town, and shows sell out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment. Help the Playhouse usher in 2019 and its 59th anniversary of continuous theatrical and educational services to the community. "The Playhouse is truly a gem in this city, and visiting it should be at the top of everyone's to do list!" DAILY BRUIN.
