Is it Leo’s year, or will strong competitors Matthew McConaughey or Chiwetel Ejiofor take home the gold? Find out with friends when the L.A. Historic Theatre Foundation throws its first-ever Oscar-viewing party this Sunday. Head over to the theater’s red carpet and watch the show projected on the big screen.

Madonna Monroe

Friday – Saturday, 9 p.m. and Sunday, 3 & 7 p.m. through March 16

Cavern Club Theater

Before Miley and Britney, there was Madonna, and even before that was Marilyn Monroe — the original sex symbol of the 1950s who practically created celebrity-dom as we know it today. Writer-director Joe Keane focuses on the first half of this so-called birth order of blonde bombshells in his musical that opens this Friday. The show follows the life of Marilyn Monroe, all to the live tune of early Madonna hits, including “Like a Virgin,” “Like a Prayer” and “Vogue.”
