IAMA THEATRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER “PATRON OF THE ARTS” SHONDA RHIMES

New Endowment will fund “Rhimes Unsung Voices Playwriting Commission”
March 20, 2017…Los Angeles…IAMA THEATRE COMPANY announces world-renowned television producer and creator Shonda Rhimes as the first ever “Patron of the Arts” for the critically acclaimed theater company. The nonprofit organization is made up of an ensemble of theater artists seeking to connect and cultivate a new generation of audiences by promoting new artists and developing new works that challenge and entertain as well as stimulate honest dialogue and sustain the future value of theater within the Los Angeles community.
The endowment will fund, among other things, the RHIMES UNSUNG VOICES PLAYWRITING COMMISSION. The objective of the commission will be to help grow and nourish the theater community in Los Angeles for budding playwrights and artists, allowing writers the chance to develop new plays with one of Los Angeles's most exciting young theater companies. Funding will have special emphasis on cultural inclusion – all with the goal of showcasing fresh, creative, thought-provoking work. Those chosen will join artists such as Leslye Headland, Jon Caren, D.G. Watson, Bess Wohl, MaxPosner, and others who have developed their plays with IAMA.
“We could not be more honored for Ms. Rhimes's contribution to our company,” stated Christian Durso, the Co-Artistic Director for IAMA. “She is a trailblazing storyteller in the 21st century and a champion for underrepresented voices. She fits perfectly with our mission to grow a new generation of theater artists and engage a passionate Los Angeles theater audience.”
“I chose IAMA because attending their shows has brought me so much joy,” said Ms. Rhimes. “Their productions made me FINALLY feel the way one does when exploring the New York Off-Broadway world of theater. Fresh voices filled with creativity. And they've accomplished it all on a shoe-string budget. That ends now.”
