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.”
