Giveaway: Hollywood Bowl Tickets to 'West Side Story'

UPDATE: Congrats to LAwonders, aka Jenn, who won the pair of tickets to see and hear "West Side Story" at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, July 8! Thanks to everyone who participated. And ... stay tuned! I'll have another Hollywood Bowl giveaway next week!

The Hollywood Bowl -- that superb spot for summertime entertainment -- is hosting what looks to be a great night out for parents. Two nights, actually. And I'm giving away a pair of tickets!

On July 8 and 9, the LA Philharmonic presents the MGM classic musical "West Side Story" in HD in honor of the film's 50th anniversary.

The LA Phil will perform the famous orchestral score from Leonard Bernstein and the Stephen Sondheim songs live, while the newly remastered film plays in high definition on the Hollywood Bowl's big screen, with the original songs and dialogue intact.

Based on the book by Arthur Laurents with choreography by Jerome Robbins, the 1961 film stars Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as a star-crossed couple who fall in love despite coming from rival New York City gangs.

David Newman will serve as conductor for the LA Philharmonic.

I LOVE going to the Hollywood Bowl, and seeing West Side Story there would be fantastic. My girlfriend has never seen it, and taking her to see it at the Bowl... with a little wine and cheese outdoors beforehand... and the LA Phil playing the score... it sounds perfect! It sure beats my first experience with West Side Story, on a 13 inch TV/VCR combo... :)

Love the Hollywood Bowl and love Westside Story. Both together is almost too much to ask for.

Ruth said...

I want to go. Do the tickets come with two round trip tickets from DFW?

L.A. Story said...

These are all such great comments! And I wish I could fly you out here, Barbara. :) There's also SummerSounds for kids at the Bowl, which I want to check out, too. (And, just fyi, you don't have to be a parent to enter this giveaway.)

I have lived in L.A. for almost 3 years and still haven't been able to see any performances at the Hollywood Bowl. I recently met my GF who will hopefully be my future wife and this opportunity would be wonderful for us to experience together. Since we are both HUGE film buffs and are originally from New York, seeing West Side Story would make our year!

I've never gone to the Hollywood Bowl and would love a chance to go. West Side Story is such a classic, what better way to see it than in the way they are doing it.

7/7 is my mother-n-laws birthday. She and I are BIG fans of West Side Story and have never been to the Hollywood Bowl. This would not only give us the opportunity to celebrate her birthday, but also to go somewhere new, see something we both LOVE & ADORE, and of course have some me and her time (which we rarely have). Even if we don't win these tickets... I wish who ever does a wonderful time! Thank you for the opportunity! ;)

Awww, happy early birthday to your mother-in-law, PHIA!

We recently moved to LA and have heard remarkable things about the Hollywood Bowl. Our friends RAVE about how ideal it is for a date night and we are in need of a date night! I've been told to pack a nice picnic for the evening and plan on doing so if we win this amazing giveaway. We'll def add this to our prayers tonight ;)

PS-I also "LIKED" the story on Facebook (jenn infanto) and twitter (@_jennalee)
