Come meet me at Metro

 

Instead of riding Metro to see a show, let the journey itself be the spectacle! Watts Village Theater Company is putting on their third annual Meet Me @Metro, a traveling theatre event that will be held along the Gold Line on the next two weekends.

Audience members will gather at Union Station in the East Portal, then be guided en masse toward East L.A. Civic Center. Six performances, designed to showcase the history of L.A. culture and art, will be held at four separate stops along the way. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing because audience participation is encouraged!

Meet Me @Metro will take place on the following days and times:

  • Saturday, Aug. 25, 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
  • Sunday, Aug. 26, 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sept.1, 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
  • Sunday, Sept. 2, 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and include a Metro day pass, which means after the show is over you can go explore more of L.A. by Metro. For those on a tighter budget, there are two pay-what-you-will shows: Sunday, Aug. 26 at noon and Saturday, Sept. 1 at noon. Each trip will take approximately 3.5 hours and all ages are welcome.

Get ready to experience the Gold Line in a whole new way! I’ll be attending the very first show on August 25 for those who may be interested in playing “Spot the Metro-ette.”

      For pay-what-you-will shows, you are not required to buy a $20 ticket to enjoy the show. A suggested donation (minimum $1) will be enough on Aug 26 and Sept 1 at 12 p.m.

    • Hi Efren,

      I will check, but the $20 includes the day pass regardless and I’m not sure if the WVTC will offer discounts for those with their own passes. You could perhaps go on one of the pay-what-you-will days where you can use your own Metro pass and make a small donation to the theatre company instead.

  1. Of course, if you take Metro to Union Station, you’ll probably already have bought a ticket to get to the performances.

  2. Hi Rob,
    Depending on how many trains (and or buses) you need to take to get you to Union Station, you may want to buy single tickets to get to U.S. and then use the Day Pass included in you ticket for the show and your further trips (including getting home however much later).

    We started on the Gold Line, so just one ticket to get to U.S. Then we took advantage of having a day pass and had dinner off the Red Line, then returned to U.S. and back home off Gold Line.

    This show is a great Metro adventure! http://metroduo.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/meet-me-metro-iii-preview/
