LA Weekly’s Steven Leigh Morris gazes into his crystal ball and sees promise and hope for Los Angeles Theater in 2013.
Besides mentioning the upcoming seasons for the always worthy companies of CTG, The Theatre @Boston Court, Sacred Fools, Zombie Joe’s Underground, Son of Semele, Rogue Machine, Theatre of NOTE and Antaeus, Steven also offers some serious props to the Hollywood Fringe Festival and the return of Radar LA.
Thought this was a nice description of what it’s like to Fringe here in LA:
A Fringe show is like a surprise gift. You pay around $10 and wind up holding this thing in your hand. The wrapping paper looks OK, but you just don’t quite know what it is until you open it. It takes a certain, adventurous personality to find delight in this. There are quite a few such folk out there. Fringe attendance almost doubled in its second year. From casual observation of last year’s fest, these folk tend to be young. Risk takers usually are.
I’m looking forward to 2013, and apparently so is Steven.
