Theatre of NOTE is a democratic ensemble of L.A. theatre artists dedicated to creating high-caliber, original work that challenges both its ensemble and audiences.
Theatre of NOTE aspires to more accurately reflect LA's cultural make-up, to make our work resonate more deeply and honestly with our audiences, and better enable NOTE to tell more culturally diverse stories.
Theatre of NOTE is a non-profit democratic company that stagedives the arena of theatre arts. Founded in 1981, our ensemble-based organization is dedicated to providing a creative environment in which to collaborate and develop maverick theater.
NOTE produces an average of four mainstage shows a year, with a focus on premiere productions — shows that are brand new to the world, to the West Coast, to California, or to Los Angeles. NOTE also produces the annual Hollywood Performance Marathon, the NOTEworthy new play development workshops, and our educational outreach program, the Young Writers Project.
NOTE has consistently been commended by both Los Angeles and national press, including American Theatre Magazine, and has earned countless accolades, nominations, and honors from every award-granting theatrical organization in Southern California.
Stick your hand in L.A.’s NOTEorious black box theatre — you never know if you’ll get licked… or bitten.
Theatre of NOTE stands for an ability and willingness to take artistic risks.
We choose plays that illuminate universal truths of emotional honesty, passion, and humanity through theatrical extremes.
We maintain a safe and professional artistic environment in which we can risk, express, learn, and flourish while working in many capacities with fellow visionary theatre artists on challenging premiere theatrical works.
We find a strong sense of communal self in our generosity, integrity, respect, diversity, and the democracy of our organization.
We are committed to bringing world premieres and new playwrights to our stage.
We treat our company members and guest artists with respect, encouragement, love, and support for each other’s artistic growth, vision, and experience.
We welcome our audiences with enthusiasm, intelligence, and a desire to share the best of what NOTE has to offer.
