“I chose an unconventional space at the LATC to stage an unconventional piece that tells a story in an unconventional way. The LATC Basement Gallery, near Theater 3 downstairs, takes us out of our comfort zone and challenges me as a director, as well as the designers and the ensemble. It makes us see the piece through a different lens and “make it work” with no stage, no wings — just a concrete floor, pillars and white walls. It pushes our creativity and keeps us searching, experimenting and learning how to tell a human story about why we, and I mean “we” as a society, go to war.” – Jose Luis Valenzuela, Director.
**Melancholia is being performed in the LATC Gallery. Seating in this space is EXTREMELY limited. We encourage you to buy your tickets before hand to avoid being turned away. Click here to purchase tickets online. **
The season continues with the World Premiere of Paula J. Caplan’s Shades on March 23rd. Shades explores the bonds of community and family around the armed forces. A play about finding love and laughter after loss.
