RADAR L.A. – An International Festival of Contemporary Theater


Summer is the time of year when Hollywood releases many of its big budget movies. The weather heats up and so does the box office – at least that’s the idea. But what about the local theater scene?

This summer, theater lovers in Los Angeles have a lot to get excited about. One of the upcoming events that recently caught my attention is RADAR L.A., an international festival of contemporary theater produced by REDCAT in collaboration with Center Theatre Group and The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival (New York).

Lightning in a Bottle 2011


Once again The Do LaB brings their creative energies to the southern California music and arts scene with Lightning in a Bottle 2011, the 10th evolution of their signature festival. The Los Angeles based company specializes in “creating experiences as art form” and has become a fixture at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival for the past seven years. While I unfortunately missed Coachella this year, I attended in 2009 and 2010 and The Do LaB installations were definitely a highlight of the festival experience.
