With luxury lofts rising from abandoned buildings and trendy restaurants popping up on once-desolate corners, there has been much talk about people rediscovering downtown Los Angeles. But Margarita Medina is truly an urban pioneer. Medina, 75, has called the Angelus Plaza Senior Citizens Housing Complex home since it opened 24 years ago, arriving long before the Italian cucinas and designer hotels.

Forget tradition. But completely . Wake up to non-traditional casting, use of language and, yes, standards. The Cornerstone Theater Company's experiment in theater with the Angelus Plaza Senior Activity Center at the downtown Angelus Plaza housing complex takes the word community to the nth degree of seriously. Its production of "The Toy Truck," which opened Friday on the Plaza promenade, is like nothing Los Angeles has ever experienced.

Turning his back to the actors on stage, the director opens his mouth and mocks a silent scream. It's been a grueling rehearsal and Bill Rauch has been nice all day. But with a little over two weeks to go before opening night, the play is hopelessly behind schedule, and Rauch is frustrated. More than a dozen actors out of a cast of 40 have dropped out in the past month, and today, an actress in a key role is reported to have suffered heart trouble over the weekend.

The architects were baffled. For months, they stationed themselves outside a dozen Los Angeles senior citizens projects watching the elderly residents. They carefully recorded where people walked, where they sat, how they congregated and what they did. The architects could not figure out why no one went near the circular benches. They seemed inviting enough, but the straight benches were preferred.

I enjoyed the outstanding "Where Angels Tread" story (by Patt Morrison and Cecilia Rasmussen, Dec. 9) highlighting some of the historic buildings downtown. Omitted, however, were two key monuments to transportation in Los Angeles: the former Pacific Electric Building at 6th and Main streets and the Subway Terminal Building at 4th and Hill streets.
