 “The Kirk Douglas Theatre presents bold, authentic, and engaging works and this season our Artistic Team has created a thrilling lineup of innovative artists making work that breaks boundaries and unites people through the power of their storytelling,” said Center Theatre Group Managing Director/CEO Meghan Pressman. 

“We are grateful to our theatre community for challenging and engaging with us as we set out to honor the commitments to our global majority community," the five Associate Artistic Directors stated. This season, we have also intentionally partnered with like-minded organizations on each production, as we believe that collaboration is vital to our L.A. theatre ecology.”
