Block Party: Celebrating Los Angeles Theatre

About This Show

Join the second annual Center Theatre Group Block Party and discover exceptional new theater from the past year that you may not even know you missed.

Every night, performers take the stage at over 250 theaters across Los Angeles. The abundance of talent and innovative work being produced is a theater lover’s dream. To celebrate all that L.A.’s intimate theater scene has to offer, CTG is once again presenting encore productions from three outstanding companies — showcasing their remarkable work at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

The plays selected for the inaugural Block Party were Coeurage Theatre Company’s production of Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins, the Echo Theater Company’s production of Dry Land by Ruby Rae Spiegel, and the Fountain Theatre’s production of Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine and adapted for the stage by Stephen Sachs.
