Notes from Arden
Bon Voyage, Bob Verini, Highways Anniversary Gala, The City of West Hollywood Buys the Coast Playhouse
“Verini writes, ‘After 21 years of living in this beautiful part of the country, 10 of them engaged in theater reviewing, I have decided that the curtain on the next act of my life — and I hope it won’t be the last act — should go up on the East Coast, where my family and full-time employers and, if I am to be fully honest, heart all reside.’” — by PAUL BIRCHALL
Got It Covered
Brian Kite, producing artistic director of La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, is stepping down to take over the Department Chair at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Still quite a young artist, Kite has already had an illustrious career, with credits from the Actors Co-op to the French Woods Festival in New York (where he served as director of theater programs for more than seven years) to the Geffen, and he has certainly had played a strong leadership role at La Mirada – not to mention is position of board chair at Los Angeles Stage Alliance.
