We’re so thrilled to be writing to you today.
In the years since our last curtain call, we’ve busied ourselves with
projects, bought (and sold!) the Circle Theatre in Hollywood, and have been searching high and low for a knockout play with which to make Red Dog’s Return.
We've found that play and can’t wait to share it to you.
Having to give up the Circle earlier this year highlights just how challenging it is to produce live, non-profit theatre in LA. And yet, there’s still nothing else like it, especially as technology seems to be increasingly separating us from the vital connections we all need.
Ayad Akhtar in his
NY Times article
at the end of last year summed it up nicely:
"A living being before a living audience. Relationship unmediated by the contemporary disembodying screen. Not the appearance of a person, but the reality of one. Not a simulacrum of relationship, but a form of actual relationship."
And the relationship we’ve had with audiences for almost twenty years now has kept us dreaming and ever inspired.
