'Express' Heads for San Diego, Los Angeles

April 20, 1989|DON SHIRLEY

AWARDS: The Theatre League Alliance (Theatre LA) will present its newly created Governors Awards to 15 recipients "who have contributed significantly to the excellence of live theater in Los Angeles."

The honorees: composer-lyricist Billy Barnes, producer-actress Marla Gibbs, LACLO founder Edwin Lester, East West Players founder Mako, writer-director Luis Valdez, Music Center creator Dorothy Chandler, critic Dick Lochte, Los Angeles Endowment for the Arts architect (and Los Angeles City Councilman) Joel Wachs, and actors Charlton Heston, Jack Lemmon, Lu Leonard and Mary Martin. Awards will be presented in memoriam to actor-director John Allison, Pasadena Playhouse founder Gilmor Brown and actor Henry Fonda.

The awards, designed by artist Robert Graham, will be presented at a Nov. 20 ceremony at the Pasadena Playhouse. The event is intended to become an annual affair.

THE CALLBOARD Theatre will be busy in the next three months. First up is Project III doing Bertolt Brecht's "Baal," opening May 12 for three weeks. Then the newly formed Strike Theatre will present three plays in repertory: Don DeLillo's "The Day Room," the Jacobean thriller "The Revengers," and the premiere of Harry Kondoleon's "The Fairy Garden."

A MEMORIAL for actor Merritt Butrick, who played the hustler in "Kingfish" at Los Angeles Theatre Center last year, will be held Monday at 8 p.m. in the LATC lobby. Butrick died last month of undisclosed causes. Contributions may be made in his memory to the Actors Fund of America.
