Our productions have toured both sides of the Atlantic, including the Edinburgh and Dublin Festivals, New York City, Atlanta, South Carolina, Seattle, San Francisco, and throughout California.
Over the years Theatre West’s plays have transferred to Broadway (Spoon River Anthology, Aesop in Central Park), to feature films (A Bronx Tale, Faithful) and have been published (Acting: The First Six Lessons, Thicker Than Water). Two recent original plays (Our Man In Santiago) and (Eisenhower: This Piece Of Ground), premiered at Theatre West and shortly thereafter opened Off-Broadway.
Our work has been applauded with Tony Awards, Obies, Ovations Award Nominations, 9 LA Drama Critics Awards, Valley Theatre Awards, 7 NAACP Image Awards, and over 130 Drama-Logue Awards. Internationally, we have been nominated by the BBC for the Best of the Fringe, and awarded the coveted Cover of the Scotsman at the Edinburgh Festival, as well as Best Ensemble Award at the Dublin Festival. We have also been honored at the annual Charlie Awards presented by The Hollywood Arts Council.
Some of Hollywood’s brightest lights have made Theatre West their artistic home, including Betty Garrett, Lee Meriwether, Richard Dreyfuss, Carroll O’Connor, Harold Gould, Beau Bridges, Martin Landau, Bridget Hanley and Philip Abbott.
A new generation of actors and writers, continues to keep the legacy of its founding members alive with a commitment to expanding their artistic boundaries and to creating original and compelling works.
