As part of its regional conference, The Dramatists Guild held a Town Hall event on Saturday night at the Veterans’ Memorial Building in Culver City. The discussion of how playwrights are supposed to move forward in the absence of the 99-Seat Plan (“The Future of New Play Production in Los Angeles”) was off-the-record. I was asked to present an “overview” of L.A. theater history, on the premise that we can’t comprehend where we’re going if we don’t grasp where we’ve been. For that account, see my Notes from Arden column in Stage Raw.
