I was supposed to direct two major productions this fall, both produced by the same man. Since he had some physical problems, I helped him for a month with the production side. I got agreements with the two publishers of the plays, permissions from the authors and from their agents , found a PR person , even a theatre that would have been perfect both as far as the size and location . I even received ticket orders for the McNally play, to which I have the West Coast Premiere rights,from two major LGBT organizations on town . And then the producer evaporated....
Searching for a replacement for one or both plays.

Coming up soon. Will keep you posted.

We have opened a fund raising campaign for the next season of our OTC theatre Planned:
And Away We Go - a hilarious new play by Terrence McNally, The Last Schwartz, a hit dramedy by Debrah Zoe Laufer and Heat by William Hauptmann, a brilliant drama that we premiered in 1977 at our original theatre on Sunset Strip but which, for some mysterious reasons, has disappeared from US stages. Of course all this depends on how much we will be able to raise . We have sent out over 1500 requests for donations. Yes, times are tight, but Arts nurture souls, so go my to Pavel Cerny page to the donation column and give as much or as little that you can afford .

The day we signed the lease for the porn theatre that was to become the Orpheum Theater Corporation on Sunset Strip. Yes, Orpheum. I was so green in LA that I had no idea there was already one huge beautiful theatre of this name in Downtown LA.

We have opened at a remodeled porn theatre (Devil in Ms.Jones and Deep Throat ran there for years) on Sunset Strip, across from what used to be the Tower Records 36 years ago. Our first production was the US Premiere of Isak Dinesen/Helena Weltman play IMMORTAL STORY. ("Doubtlessly one of the most important plays to reach us from abroad in recent years" Messenger. "The baroque nuances, subtleties and shading of Dinesen's gothic tale come through with haunting strangeness. The mood is captured. What is said is less meaningful then what is left unsaid...A vague sense of portent and of the sinister, a sadness of reverie, Dinesen's brooding mentality pervade-LA Free Press)
