CTG:FWD provides greater opportunities for community gatherings and conversations, can’t-miss special events, and the centering of Los Angeles-based artists and the arts community. It also provides a unique opportunity to continue to keep open the doors of the Mark Taper Forum—which announced a pause in subscription programming for the 2023/24 Season—and welcome members of the community back into that space for some of these special events and programs.
A Note from Artistic Director Snehal Desai
This past year when we announced CTG:FWD, I was excited to find new ways to use our venues—including hosting special events, one-off performances, and forums for community centered on the arts.
After a very busy fall featuring Alex Edelman’s smash hit Just For Us, Michael Feinstein’s long-awaited return to the Taper in Coming Home: The Holiday Celebration, and community events anchored by Little Amal, the Los Angeles Theatre Summit, and our recently announced L.A. Artist Residencies, I am more excited than ever to announce our Spring 2024 CTG:FWD lineup.
CTG:FWD is created with everyone in mind, whether you are a long-time loyal subscriber, or setting foot in one of Center Theatre Group’s venues for the very first time.
For Spring 2024, Center Theatre Group continues this exciting new programming at the Mark Taper Forum with the return of Feinstein’s at the Taper and Alex Edelman’s Just for Us, as well the debut of a new partnership with MUSE/IQUE and the first Taper Legacy Readings.
CTG:FWD programming at the Kirk Douglas Theatre includes the L.A. Writers’ Workshop Festival and the TheaterWorksUSA production of El Otro Oz.
Additionally, CTG’s Education & Community Partnerships department celebrates its 10-year anniversary of Community Partnerships programming with a series of play readings at East Los Angeles College.
See you there!
