Robert N. Lear, who helped forge the deal to have the city buy Los Angeles Theatre Center, has resigned as LATC's managing director. A nationwide search is underway for his successor. Lear spent much of his 18-month tenure crafting a political package that resulted in a March 6 decision by the Los Angeles City Council to buy the downtown theater building and convert it into a municipal theater complex, with the LATC production company remaining as the primary tenant.

The Los Angeles Theatre Center has raided Wall Street in an attempt to restore the financial health of the downtown theater complex. Robert N. Lear, formerly director of international communications at the New York Stock Exchange, assumed the title of managing director at LATC on Monday. His position there is equal--on paper, at least--to those of the theater's founders, Bill Bushnell and Diane White.

Wanted: Managing directors for L.A.'s two most prominent theaters. The Mark Taper Forum's Stephen J. Albert announced last week that he will leave the Taper as of Sept. 1. His decision follows on the heels of Robert N. Lear's recent departure from Los Angeles Theatre Center. Albert is moving to Houston to become executive director of that city's Alley Theatre, one of America's oldest resident theaters. But beyond the specific temptations of the Alley, Albert also wanted out of Los Angeles.
