There is no point in rehashing the circumstances that led to the collapse of the Los Angeles Theatre Center. It's over. Finished. Gone. We stand at this moment with this audacious, controversial company disbanded and the city's Cultural Affairs Department in charge of a so-called caretaker plan for the vacant four-theater Spring Street complex it once inhabited--an empty vessel with no characteristic properties of its own, ready for the imprint of its next tenants.

The Los Angeles Theatre Center's Latino Theatre Lab will commission seven new plays from six Latino playwrights with $220,000 in new grant money, the LATC said Monday. Some of the funding--$200,000 from the Ford Foundation and $20,000 from NBC--will be used to expand the actors' ensemble at the Lab. Director Jose Luis Valenzuela said the new plays will chronicle the Latino experience and reflect Latino concerns. The Lab, a multicultural nonprofit professional theater company and theatrical training laboratory organized in 1979, has produced five plays at LATC under Valenzuela's direction.

The Spring Street complex that formerly housed the Los Angeles Theatre Center will remain in limited use at least through June 30, according to a "caretaker" plan approved by the City Council Wednesday. The plan frees $450,000 in capital improvement funds to be used for operational expenses at the downtown municipal theater. City officials say they expect the complex to be used for workshops by the LATC's ethnic labs and for "self-produced shows" by independent companies.

With $200,000 in hand from a recent Ford Foundation grant, the Los Angeles Theatre Center's Latino Theatre Lab has commissioned six Latino playwrights to write seven plays for the lab to produce starting next year. The plays are the first installment of 17 new plays the lab hopes to present in the next three years. The first of these presentations will be one of two plays to be written by Cuban playwright Eduardo Machado. Now referred to as "Project X-2," Machado's next play is expected to deal with the denial of one's sexual identity.

What next? That was the question heard again and again Sunday as crowds swarmed through Los Angeles Theatre Center for the final performances of the insolvent company that had operated the four-theater downtown complex since 1985. "It has to stop," said artistic director Bill Bushnell as he took in the scene, which seemed busier than ever on its closing night.

The Los Angeles City Council joins the debate this week over the future of the downtown complex that housed the late Los Angeles Theatre Center. A "caretaker" plan for the municipal theater center is expected to come before the council Tuesday. The proposal would allow $450,000 of city money, already set aside for capital improvements at the building, to be used for "interim operational expenditures" as well, during a period ending June 30.

The Scene: Monday night at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, where the LATC held its second annual fund-raiser to benefit its Latino Theatre Lab. The evening, dubbed "Otra Noche de Risa y Susto--Die Laughing," combined the traditional Mexican Day of the Dead celebration with an evening of Latino stand-up comedy. Before the performance, guests looked at altars created by local artists and watched a performance by the Latino Theatre Lab's Workshop.
