Los Angeles friends: if you haven't been to the annual Tchaikovsky Spectacular with Fireworks at the Hollywood Bowl, you're missing one of LA's greatest treats. Tickets are still available for tonight and tomorrow night's show. We are going Saturday. I'll wear a Boing Boing T-shirt -- if you see me, say hi!
Tchaikovsky and fireworks –- a glorious Hollywood Bowl tradition! This year, in addition to the 1812 Overture with cannons and pyrotechnics, we feature stars from American Ballet Theatre in famous pas de deux from Swan Lake and from their new production of The Nutcracker.
