Offscript: Shhh…You Sleep Now!

This week’s guest is TCG board president Diane Rodriguez, who discusses the recent TCG board meetings, the Latino theatre movement and the L.A. 99-seat plan. Plus, the editors preview our December issues, out this week.

Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts.

This week’s episode features an interview with Diane Rodriguez, the president of the board of Theatre Communications Group, associate artistic director at Los Angeles’s Center Theatre Group and Latino theatre pioneer. She sat with editors Rob Weinert-Kendt and Diep Tran to discuss TCG comings and goings, the Latino theatre movement (including her days at El Teatro Campesino), whether or not CTG is LA’s theatre company and the current battle over L.A.’s 99-seat plan.

The editors discuss AT‘s December issue (which should be in your mailboxes now, and is starting to get posted online), and Rob reminiscences about breaking the Macbeth curse with Actors’ Gang founder Tim Robbins.

Finally, our editors recommend Cabaret at Roundabout Theatre Company starring Emma Stone, Our Lady of Kibeho at Signature Theatre Company and the web comic Dirtbag Shakespeare (they even act out a bit of it for the recording).
