Let's spend an evening enjoying what looks like a fun and raucous evening of circus, comedy and dance (of a sort) ...
"With a spring-loaded love of the absurd, the internationally heralded troupe Circus Oz has created a fabulous new future From the Ground Up. Join this wildly popular company in a glorious rebellion against the generic as they deliver a delightfully ridiculous show for all ages. This versatile and diverse home-grown mob of quick-witted stunt jumpers are fully charged and raring to go with power-packed aerialists, knockabout jugglers and live-wire musicians all acrobatically suspended in disbelief under the big top of Royce Hall."

As of this writing, there were still very good seats available. I'm in seat B3 and there were four empty seats next to me.
The performance starts at 8:00, but if you're able, join me for dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen (which has entrees and great salads in addition to pizza). We'll meet there at 5:30 pm in order to give ourselves plenty of time to eat, move our cars, and re-park at UCLA (where parking is $11 CASH ONLY).
The CPK is on the corner of Broxton and Weyburn. The address is 1001 Broxton. Across the street and just a hair south is a public parking lot. From what I can see online, there is 2 hour free parking if you enter before 6 pm and a $3 flat charge if you enter after 6. Otherwise it's $1.50 every 20 minutes with a max of $9.
If you are not planning to join us for dinner, let's meet up at 7:30 at the Will Call table. If you arrive late and we've already gone in, we'll try to hook up again at intermission in front of the coat check window in the lobby.
PLEASE note in the RSVP comment box whether or not you are joining us for dinner so I know how big a table to get at CPK. And please BRING CASH so it's easy to settle the dinner bill!
