Sanger

Margaret Sanger

A Timely Portrayal: Pamela Daly as Margaret Sanger Timing is everything. Acting teacher and professional veteran of film/TV, Pamela Daly, appreciates the divisive climate as she prepares to bring women rights activist Margaret Sanger to the stage in her one-woman show at the El Portal Theatre in NoHo succinctly called “Sanger.” “It’s so charged!” Daly utters with a wide-eyed expression of wonder tinged with apprehension. “I always wanted to portray a strong, historic woman and in a way, Sanger chose me.” This idea of choice is one Ms. Sanger fought for stridently as an early activist for birth control, legal…

The times, they are a changin’

For more than a century, Theatre as an institution has been facing a challenge of audience interest. While theatre along with sports were the principal sources of popular public entertainment for thousands of years, the advent of the moving picture, followed by the proliferation of television sounded a warning that Theatre as an art form may no longer be a mainstay of public interest. If movies weren’t enough of a challenge in their efforts of dramatization, television piped in and offers theatrically inspired drama on a cost-free basis. This one-two punch is a fundamental challenge to the arts in general…

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…
