A few days ago I've become member of one of the first theater companies in Los Angeles, The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre. The company began May 1973 with a rag-tag group of 12 actors performing scenes for audiences in a laundromat-turned 36 seat theatre on Van Ness Boulevard. When Lonny Chapman first entered that theatre, the magic began. Here was an Artistic Director in search of a theatre and a theatre company in search of an Artistic Director. The match was perfect and the Group Repertory Theatre was born with Lonny Chapman at the helm. This partnership continued until his passing in 2007.
I am extremely excited to be part of this company! Good things are coming.
