If you're an independent producer and looking for a home for your play, the search can be long and frustrating. And expensive--as some of the examples below indicate. The theaters listed below vary in price (usually negotiable), location--and perks. Some, such as the Callboard, offer "four walls" only; everything else must be provided by the production. Others, such as the Matrix and the Tiffany, offer marquees on busy streets and high-quality technical facilities.

A federal housing employee who worked on millions of dollars worth of rent increases and other benefits to the owner of a housing project last year was hired soon afterward to manage the same San Fernando Valley complex. The change in jobs prompted allegations by tenants that they had been sold out and also sparked an official inquiry by the government. The employee denies any wrongdoing, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development found that no law was broken.

Theatergoers who have ventured outside the familiar Hollywood-to-Santa Monica axis into the San Fernando Valley may remember a pleasant little playhouse called Room for Theatre. Tucked away in an upscale shopping mall in Studio City, it offered ample parking, plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a repertoire of civilized comedies from the 1920s through the 1940s, such as Elmer Rice's "Dream Girl" and Philip Barry's "Holiday."

Hangar rentals at Los Angeles County airports--including Fox Airfield in the Antelope Valley and Whiteman Airport in Pacoima--will increase slightly July 1 under new rates approved Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors. The hike will be the first since 1990 and raise average rents at the two airports by $11 per month. Rent for a hangar at Fox will increase from $214 to $225 and from $212 to $223 at Whiteman. "It's going to be minuscule," Whiteman Manager Eugene McPherson said.

For Karyn Isaacs, it's "solace, therapy and absolute Zen." She's not talking about yoga, acupuncture or past-life regression. In fact, it's something far simpler--riding a horse. During the week, Isaacs works as director of legal affairs for a motion picture company. Every Saturday, however, she leaves "the biz" behind and helps out as a volunteer wrangler at Griffith Park Horse Rentals in Burbank. She showed up at the stables on one recent weekend clad in T-shirt, dusty jeans and a bandanna.

Airbnb Inc., the short-term home rental service for travelers, has been issued a subpoena from New York prosecutors. State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office is investigating whether people who put units on the Airbnb website are complying with state rental laws, Bloomberg News reported, citing an unidentified person familiar with the matter. Airbnb, which has become increasingly popular in Southern California, allows people to rent homes and apartments on a short-term basis as an alternative to hotels.

Question: I live in Reseda. To protest my 6% rent increase, I showed the property manager one of your columns indicating that rent increases for apartments under Los Angeles rent control are limited to 3%. I was told that they can raise the rent higher because they pay for my utilities and electric. Can you explain the fine print? Answer: Landlords under L.A. city rent control are allowed to charge an additional 1% per utility if they pay for your electric and/or gas bills.
