In his first role in America, Maurice Barrymore played the hero in Augustin Daly's immensely popular 1867 "Under the Gaslight." Daly saw the production and later brought Barrymore back to his Fifth Avenue Theatre in New York, where Barrymore eventually met Georgie Drew, with whom he founded the Barrymore theatrical dynasty. "Under the Gaslight" helped establish Daly's company as one of the most popular of the mid-19th Century.

In the days of its youth, this old warehouse offered nothing for the imagination. For decades people came to this building at 24th and Hoover streets to work. Not to play. Not to dream.

White-Spunner, a lecturer at USC's School of Theater, looked at the dusty emptiness and saw a stage and cushioned seats, curtains, lights and audiences.

Stephanie Shroyer can't help herself. No matter what the subject is, she's always looking for a universal human experience. "I want to learn how to get along on this planet," the director says simply. "I strive to make connections, to share the human experience."

One way to find out what's going on in the theater is to read the reviews. Another way is to push open a theater door, walk in during a rehearsal, stand smack in the middle of the performance space and say: "Hey, what are you guys doing?" A young boy from the neighborhood chose the latter approach during a recent rehearsal of "The Importance of Being Earnest" at the 24th Street Theatre just west of Hoover Avenue near the USC campus.
