  • Not too big, but big enough to feel professional. The seats are quite close to the stage for an intimate show.  more »

  • The most important thing to know and appreciate about the Kirk Douglas is that it is a major theater presenting major works but that it is the only theater of that caliber in the Los Angeles area that affords the intimate contact between performer and audience that makes for those profound moments of connection that can change one's perception. There are many small, intimate theaters scattered throughout Los Angeles, but they are usually venues for local talent or places to present new works by hopeful playwrights and performers. The Douglas draws on internationally renown performers often performing more intimate works. The late, great British actor John Hurt performed Beckett's "Krapp's Last Tape" there in 2012. Recently, the wonderful Bill Irwin presented his actor's workshop "On Beckett" at the Douglas. It is not a theater in the "Grand" sense; rather it is an unpretentious, simple theater where the grandness takes place on the stage when the performer and audience are in close enough proximity that they experience a collective intimate connection.
  • One of the finest theaters in Los Angeles. Intimate and top quality productions. Bill Irwin's"On Beckett" was astonishing. Easy parking at the Civic center parking lot and many fine restaurants within walking distance. Make a night of it!
