LOS ANGELES: The community-funded nonprofit arts journal Stage Raw and the Theatre Producers of Southern California (TPSCA) have announced a partnership to reboot stage coverage across Southern California, after the implosion of Los Angeles Stage Alliance, the longtime regional theatre service organization, last year. In February 2022, Stage Raw will launch a new comprehensive and free listings service, offering audience access to see at a glance what’s playing on stages across the region.
“During TPSCA’s evaluation of the resources most needed by our membership, we realized there were no longer widely read theatre listings,” said TPSCA board member Maria Gobetti, who serves on the organization’s resources committee, in a statement. “Stage Raw, under the leadership of Steven Leigh Morris, with his long track record as a journalist, theatre supporter, and editor, is the logical partner for the community in reviving this important service.”
The new listings will be updated once a week and use a single-page scroll-down format that identifies all shows opening in a given week. It will also then list shows continuing at larger theatres, followed by intimate theatres within Hollywood; Downtown, South, and East Los Angeles; the Valleys; and in the Westside/Beaches communities. Venues in surrounding counties will also be included in the listings. The service is dedicated to spreading the word to audiences about the diversity of theatres and programming across the region.
Theatres are invited to submit listings requests for shows opening from February 2022 by submitting a press release and a one-page listings request form to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available on Stage Raw‘s website.
