Gordon Davidson's Memorial is set for Monday, January 9, 2017 AT 7:30PM at the Ahmanson Theatre, 135 N Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Gordon Davidson, Center Theatre Group's Founding Artistic Director, who passed away on October 2, 2016, was one of America's most renowned and beloved artistic visionaries. He led Center Theatre Group for 38 years, shaping the company into one of the most creative and important theatres in the world. Under his leadership, the Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, and Kirk Douglas Theatre was the birthplace of many of the most acclaimed dramatic works of the second half of the Twentieth Century and a launching pad for the careers of dozens of playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and theatre administrators.
Gordon's passionate dramatic, social, and political convictions forever altered and expanded the theatrical landscape in Los Angeles and the place of theatre in American culture. He was and will remain one of the American theatre's greatest leaders. I was proud to call him a mentor, friend, and colleague.
Center Theatre Group will hold a celebration in honor of Gordon Davidson, on Monday, January 9, 2017, beginning at 7:30pm at the Ahmanson Theatre. The theatre will open at 7pm. The celebration is a non-ticketed, open event. ASL and audio description will be provided.
