“There are many groups that have grown up with the Fringe and become very successful,” says Mitchell. “And there’re a lot of young producers who have emerged out of the Fringe.

A-Burn at his best. An authentically “Los Angeles” voice no doubt. Not many can draw out the metaphors between stage and city better than this dude. HIT Anthony Byrnes – KCRW Okay – there’s Zankou Chicken falling from the ceiling, there’s sex after a car crash, there’s Cafe Tropical, continual comparisons to New York, and […]

If any theatre that invites […]

“It’s astonishing that CTG, which continues to bill itself as “L.A.’s Theatre Company,” can’t find more interesting stories in the immensely diverse communities that surround the Music Center in all directions. In recent years, CTG has commissioned some potentially big plays with LA themes, but they haven’t emerged from their developmental chambers. Still, every year […]
