    JULY 17, 2014 (Los Angeles, CA) – The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, in conjunction with Gracie Films, presents the world premiere of The Simpsons Take the Bowl! on Friday and Saturday, September 12 and 13, at 8:00 PM and Sunday, September 14, at 7:30 PM at the Hollywood Bowl. The event, hosted by Hank Azaria, will feature special guest appearances by Nancy Cartwright, Beverly D’Angelo, Jon Lovitz, Yeardley Smith, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Matt Groening, with more to be announced.

    In celebration of more than 25 seasons and 500 episodes, selected scenes and fan favorites from The Simpsons - the longest running scripted series on television - will be shown on the Bowl’s big screens. Classic clips will be synchronized with live accompaniment by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, led by Principal Conductor Thomas Wilkins, with performances by special guests - including Cartwright and Smith (Bart and Lisa) - and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Groening, the show’s creator. From the moment fans enter the Bowl’s amphitheater, they will encounter an immersive, carnivalesque atmosphere, where secrets will be revealed, never-before-seen clips will be unveiled, and the world of Springfield will come to life.

    Please note: The world premiere of “The Simpsons Take the Bowl!” is a family-friendly event (depending on your family).

    Nestled snugly in the Hollywood Hills, the Hollywood Bowl is the largest natural amphitheater in the United States. Seating nearly 18,000 patrons, the Bowl has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922; outdoor concert performances each summer feature classical, jazz, and world music presented by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association. To this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's concerts. The Bowl's summer music festivals have become as much a part of a Southern California summer as beaches and barbecues, the Dodgers and Disneyland. The Bowl grounds themselves ‒ one of Los Angeles County's most renowned parks ‒ are open year-round for visitors to enjoy free of charge.
