Following up on my previous post, Center Theatre Group's cut back in new play development continues to have fall-out:
In the four weeks since Center Theatre Group's new artistic director Michael Ritchie announced that he would eliminate most of the company's formal programs for developing new plays - including the annual New Work Festival as currently constituted and labs for Latino, Asian, black and disabled writers - his actions have been the talk of the theater community.
One CTG board member, Stephen Liu, a surgeon and founder and chairman of InterBusiness Bank in the City of Industry, resigned two weeks ago, in part because CTG was not as focused in the ethnic communities as I wanted, he said. I wanted them to be more diversified
