Steven Leigh Morris Lays Out LASA Agenda

steven leigh morris bicycle footlightsThisStage:  Steven Leigh Morris, the new Executive Director for the LA Stage Alliance, lays out the initial agenda under his leadership.  It’s a 4-point plan concerning:

  1. Property Values
  2. Youth Involvement
  3. Diversity
  4. Mobility / Traffic

Underscoring the entire plan is the notion that local theaters are good for local business.

Rising property values in Southern California are destabilizing arts organizations at an escalating rate — particularly the smaller theaters. The number of these theaters in Los Angeles County has fallen by 47% over 10 years, according to an internal L.A. Weekly study. Their loss is a direct consequence of rising real estate prices.
