Through much of the 1990s, Diana Gibson’s Cast Theatre in Hollywood was Tanner’s personal playhouse, but a new play peeks backstage at the hidden costs of that odd arrangement.
Not much makes it to the stage in our nation’s putative theatre capital that didn’t come from somewhere else.
Justin Tanner’s great 1990s comedies taught me about the beautiful impermanence of theatre. But artists keep creating, and plays can be revived. Maybe you can go home again.
