<Los Angeles Residency>
A neighborhood theatre, Cornerstone Theater, just posted an
application announcement for a residency opportunity, and i recall a
previous post asking for such information. I've pasted below bits
from the informative email, as well as the link to application/more
info. I've attended one Cornerstone show and keep up with their
programs. From my experience, CT incites through social and political
subject matter often directly involving and/or addressing its audience
Happy New Year :)
