This month, Los Angeles will host 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?
Join KPCC’s Steve Julian and representatives from Theatre Communications Group, RADAR L.A., Hollywood Fringe, Asian American Theatre Conference, Director’s Lab West, and L.A. Stage Alliance for a unique conversation about the significance of theatre and its relevance to Los Angeles.
