Audio to KPCC theater event

June 24, 2011

In June 2011, Los Angeles hosted at least five national and international theatre gatherings aimed at celebrating the progress and innovations of the art form through a variety of interactive and presentational offerings. While many consider L.A. to be a “film” or “T.V.” town, it is clear that this summer we are the go-to destination for theatre makers…but why? I moderated a lively discussion between representatives from Theatre Communications Group, RADAR L.A., Hollywood Fringe, Asian American Theatre Conference, Director’s Lab West, and L.A. Stage Alliance about the significance of theatre and its relevance to Los Angeles.

Panelists:

Terence McFarland, Executive Director, LA Stage Alliance

Kappy Kilburn, Founder/Co-Producer, Director’s Lab West

Ben Hill, Festival Director, Hollywood Fringe Festival

Mark Murphy, Executive Director, REDCAT/Co-Curator RADAR L.A.

Diane Rodriguez, Associate Producer/Director of New Play Production, Center Theatre Group/TCG Board Member and National Conference Co-chair, co-curator for RADAR L.A.

Marie-Reine Velez, Board President, TeAda Productions/National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival Steering Committee
