Notes from Arden
Theatre Unleashed’s Gregory Crafts says we’re either a community of Luddites, or we just don’t care enough as a community to do what it takes to get the word out about what we do beyond the echo chamber of usual suspects. Crafts has a concrete proposal for the use of social media at the upcoming Hollywood Fringe. He offers the challenge: You want to change things, do something? It’s not that difficult: It’s called tweeting.
This Week’s Roundup: Rogue Machine Moves to East Hollywood; Sheldon Epps Steps Down; Diane Rodriguez Appointed to the National Arts Council; Justin Tanner Says Reefer No Longer a Laughing Matter
“Yes, it is the same old story of rising rent causing the exodus of a theater company — except it isn’t quite the same, as Rogue already had been making plans to move on and up to Theater Row. So when MET owner Paul Koslo approached Flynn and offered him a year’s lease at a substantially lower rent, it allowed the company to create an “interim” season before moving to the space on Cahuenga.” — By PAUL BIRCHALL
