  • The Yellow Boat @ GTC Coeurage Theatre Company

    The Yellow Boat A Scandinavian folksong tells of three little boats: “One was blue, one was red, and one was as yellow as the sun. They sailed far out to sea. The blue carried hope. The red carried faith. And the yellow boat filled itself with love.” Come aboard for the voyage of Benjamin, the yellow boat. THE YELLOW BOAT is “a glorious affirmation of life,” told by 8-year-old Benjamin, touching on the healing powers of art, family, and community. It is a celebration of the strength of children and an inspiring piece for all ages. The Yellow Boat GTC…

Kenneth Cavander and the Co-Artistic Directors of The Antaeus Company

Kenneth Cavander and the Co-Artistic Directors of The Antaeus Company by Graham Sibley Bill Brochtrup, Rob Nagle and John Sloan (for this article’s purpose we will call them the Troika) are a lot more than three actor amigos, who happened to just love the classics. Together, this triumvirate makes up the Artistic Directorship at The Antaeus Company in North Hollywood, one of the most established (and sexy) companies in town. In the Troika’s three years leading the company, Antaeus has received 15 Ovation nominations & wins, including Best Production of a Play, an LADCC award for Best Revival, and been…

The Three C’s

Sometimes I feel as if I’m shouting into gale force winds. The louder I scream the less is heard. What am I talking about?  Communication. Community. Communion. The three great C’s of Theatre. How do we inspire the activation and commitment of the entire community to best take advantage of what could be called the noblest art. By its very nature, Theatre is the model of community. A profound collaboration of a number of artists from different disciplines focused on a singular purpose. Each member has their own sense of purpose and vision, but all work cohesively to achieve the…

Rogue Machine Takes Big Risks and Growing Strong

Rogue Machine Takes Big Risks and Growing Strong A good rule of thumb is to start as you mean to go on. For Rogue Machine it all started when TV and film producer John Perrin Flynn renewed his interest in directing for the stage and had big ideas about producing theatre in Los Angeles. After seeing Craig Lucas’ Obie-award-winning play “Small Tragedy” in NYC, he made several attempts to get the rights. For Flynn, this would mark the first step towards embarking on a big, risk-taking venture in the Los Angeles theatre community. In the six months waiting to obtain…

Dare to Adventure

Dare to Adventure One of the great joys of running FootLights Publishing is that I learn about a lot of shows that are being produced throughout greater LA. The sad part is that because of the sheer numbers, it’s impossible to see everything. Now my want, as I’m guessing is the case with most people, is to go with the familiar. A show we know, a theatre we know, an organization or an individual we’re familiar with, those are the quick and easy choices. It’s safe. Then it occurs to me that a safe theatre experience is not really what…
