  • 1 Amargosa Opera House. Marta Becket was an accomplished, touring 42-year-old dancer when she and her husband stopped in Death Valley Junction in 1967 to repair their car. While waiting for the work to be completed, she strolled down the street and came upon an abandoned adobe theater with interesting architectural bones. She rented the theater, began painting its walls and ceilings with fantastic, fanciful murals and performed for appreciative audiences into her late 80s. She says, "I am grateful to have found the place where I can fulfill my dreams and share them with the passing scene...for as long as I can." This authentic and artistic slice of American life is worth going out of the way to experience.
