ACME brings professional sketch and improv
shows to one of L.A.'s most impressive theaters, a state-of-the-art
99-seat space. Adjacent to Farfalla restaurant, which provides painless
pre-show cocktail access and valet parking, the theater is easily
identified by the word "ACME" emblazoned across its brick
facade, like a package for Wile E. Coyote.
The renovated building has a spacious lobby done in white with multicolored
mosaic trim and walls proudly adorned with cast photos from previous
productions. Within the theater, soft chairs, air conditioning,
an excellent view from every seat and great acoustics are all part
of the experience. Even the men's room, with a Western-style swinging
saloon door, is indicative of the attention to detail.
The skits cover the spectrum, from current events to outrageous
characters, and are performed on a stage resembling Quasimodo's
town square -- minus the fountain. Caveat: Sound is uneven, and
it's sometimes difficult to hear the performers over the live musical
