Culver City's Kirk Douglas Theatre will offer a new series of lower-priced, limited-run performances of work in varying stages of development in the spring, Center Theatre Group announced Monday.
The series, called DouglasPlus, will run from March 14 through April 18 and will include both fully staged and minimally staged events, as well as workshops and readings.
Productions will take place on stage as well is in rehearsal rooms, the lobby and other spaces within the theater building, with seating configurations designed to meet the needs of that production. Tickets to the productions will cost $20, with general admission seating.
CTG artistic director Michael Ritchie said that the plan will offer an opportunity to present work that does not lend itself to a traditional subscription model.
The idea, he said, is "to break down some of the natural barriers at the Douglas, in the types of shows that we do, how we produce them and what kind of audiences we want to attract."
