City Garage 1 of "9 99-Seat Companies That Put L.A. Theater on the Map" in Backstage
"We all know Los Angeles is the land of film and television; home to all of the major studios and a hub for independent production, the road to on-camera stardom undoubtedly lies somewhere near Hollywood and Vine. But L.A. actors are not limited to digital versus celluloid; the 99-seat theater plan, introduced by Actors’ Equity as a way for performers to showcase their work in a low-risk/low-cost environment, is alive and thriving. L.A. actors take note: Here are 9 99-seat companies that are definitely worth following..."
City Garage Theatre
This Santa Monica-based company has been producing vibrant, stylized works since 1987. Led by Artistic Director Frederique Michel and Producing Director Charles Duncombe, City Garage audiences know to expect the unexpected. Michel’s ensemble-based productions are often absurdist, and always physically and visually compelling. This fall, head to its new home at Bergamot Station for Andrew Bovell’s “When The Rain Stops Falling.”
