Center Theatre Group has selected two local productions for the fourth annual Block Party: Celebrating Los Angeles Theatre at the Kirk Douglas Theatre from March 18 through April 19, 2020. Block Party 2020 will remount Sacred Fools Theater Company’s “The Art Couple” and IAMA Theatre Company’s “Canyon.” The visiting companies will receive the full support of Center Theatre Group and its staff in order to fund, stage and market each production.
“Block Party offers an exciting opportunity for our organization to connect with other members of the Los Angeles theatre community and celebrate the art and artists and that help make this city such a vibrant theatre town,” said Center Theatre Group Artistic Director Michael Richie. “We look forward to welcoming Sacred Fools and IAMA into the Douglas and sharing ‘The Art Couple’ and ‘Canyon’ with our audiences.”
“No matter how much theatre you go to in Los Angeles, you are bound to miss lots of amazing work,” said Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Lindsay Allbaugh. “Block Party offers a fantastic opportunity to revisit some of the pieces I’ve seen throughout the year and look at many of the amazing productions I’ve missed. As tough as it is to narrow down to just a couple productions, it is a pleasure to see and discuss local theatre with my colleagues throughout Center Theatre Group and then have the opportunity to invite artists from other companies into our family to remount their work.”
