Writings on The Wall

In our 85 years we have collected a lot of interesting things like playbills, photos, and ticket stubs. Some of our more priceless items can only be seen on the walls or even in the medicine cabinets of the theatre. Check out the photos below to view these unique treasures.



To make their lives easier, the cast and crew of The Phantom of The Opera created an opening into the fly loft to better operate the chandelier. They left this sign for future tours to appreciate.


Master Electrician, Howard Nugent, keeps a running list of shows near his work station as a reminder of all of his hard work.


A continuation of Howard’s list.


Inside the bathroom of our star dressing room is a medicine cabinet door signed by many of the amazing talent to come through our doors.


In a close up you see the Medicine Cabinet of Fame at the top. Notable name Keala Settle signed her name as part of the 2003-2004 production of Hairspray. You can now find her in Broadway’s new show ‘The Waitress’


Molly Ringwald was kind enough to sign the Cabinet of Fame when she was here in 2006 for ‘Sweet Charity’


No one could ever forget the great Megan Hilty in her performance as Glinda in ‘Wicked’ 2007-2008


Diana Degarmo and Ace Young added their names to the list in 2014 for their roles in ‘Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’


The “Elphaba beam” as it has been known to be called has been signed by the green girls of ‘Wicked’ performances gone by. To avoid spoilers we won’t tell you how the beam is used.

The spotlight room is another place members of our crew have kept a record of all the shows that have stopped at the Hollywood Pantages over the years. The walls are completely covered in posters, playbills, and crew signatures.

A Star For Her Birthday

       A few weeks back we had the honor of watching one of Broadway’s most talented and well known leading ladies get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Many of Kristin’s friends and family were there including Dove Cameron and a special appearance by her parents all the way from Oklahoma. Speeches were given by Carol Burnett and Kenny Ortega on Kristin’s behalf as well as cheers and from her adoring fans. Here are the photos we didn’t post to Facebook.
