The Hotel Play

On April 29, 1992, Los Angeles erupted into chaos and violence after four white police officers were acquitted in the beating of African American Rodney King. The Hotel Play asks what, if anything, has changed in the past 25 years?

Join Jody David Armour, Paula Cizmar, Aubrey Hicks, and David Sloane as we think about race, Los Angeles, art, and social movements. We look at the moment that was the uprising in 1992 and how community organizing that grew out of that moment became a movement.

Announcing Policy at the Playhouse Partnership

Policy at the Playhouse began as an initiative at the USC Bedrosian Center with the idea that conversations about governance happen in many different forms and must be voiced by many different communities. Because the School of Dramatic Arts is steeped in the language and voices of artists in the field, this partnership will allow the program to grow and deepen within the USC community. The initiative will provide conversations about theatrical productions on and off campus, as well as create a new podcast of the same name to bring conversations about Angeleno theatre to off-campus audiences.
