LOS ANGELES -- Visiting productions of Annie, Cabaret, Cirque Ingenieux and Evita comprise the new season for Broadway/L.A. Subscription tickets for 1999 have gone on sale and are available by calling (213) 365-6311. Prices range from $127-$246. Three of the four shows will be seen at the Wilshire Theatre, with Annie taking place at the Shubert. Each show will run for two weeks.
When Cabaret comes to the Wilshire in February 1999, the orchestra seats will be removed and replaced with raked tables and chairs, to approximate the atmospherte of the New York and London stagings. House capacity will be reduced to around 1,500 from the current 1,910. In addition, drinks will be served to the audience.
