In Response

Towne Street Theatre, L.A.’s premiere African-American theatre company, presents “In Response,” a multi-author "response" to systemic racism throughout American history. As artists of color, the company felt it had to respond to the recent numerous police shootings and brutality of unarmed black men and women.  “In Response” is told through a collection of scenes, poetry, video, song, and movement from the 1800’s to 2015.  There will be talkbacks and a call for audience responses during the run of the show at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood, Fridays through Sundays from October 9th – October 25th.  Community Response:  Towne Street Theatre would like to empower the community and engage with their audience on their responses on this topic, each week after the 4:00 p.m. Sunday shows. The public is invited to share a poem, a spoken word piece, a letter, or a memory.  The public can submit their ideas to [email protected].

Date/Time: Preview:  Friday, October 9th.  October 10th – October 25th.   Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 4:00 p.m.  Tickets for “In Response” are only $8 for the Preview night (Oct 9) and $12 for the entire run of the production.  Tickets on sale now. Get them at
