What’s Happening in Los Angeles

 Thursday, Feb. 8
Becket @ Troubadour
Two of cinema's most legendary actors (both in their height of their prospective careers), match wits in director Peter Glenville's Becket.  Just fresh off his career making role in Lawrence of Arabia, Peter O'Toole plays the powerful King Henry II in 12th Century England. Richard Burton plays Thomas à Becket, his best friend and close advisor. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry appoints Becket, though it is a shock for Henry as Becket takes the position with nobility and becomes an opposing foe to Henry. Nuart is located at 11272 Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Wicked: National Tour @ Pantages Theatre
Wicked, the Tony-winning musical based on Gregory Maguire's bestseller with a score by Stephen Schwartz ('Godspell' and 'Pippin') hits Los Angeles for its national tour. The musical which sports a hefty budget of $14 million is laden with incredible special effects, which only heightens the back story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good witch and how these two opposites got acquainted before you know who happened to drop on by…you know the one with the red shoes. Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Los Angeles Lakers vs. New York Knicks @ Staples Center
Last time the Los Angeles Lakers played against the New York Knicks, it was a sad defeat marked by the disappointing news that Kobe Bryant could not play due to being suspended for one game for hitting San Antonio guard Manu Ginobli. Tuesday's showdown will see a rematch between the Lakers vs. the Knicks, this time it'll be at the Staples Center, and oh yeah… Number 24 will be playing. Good luck Knicks.
