THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: If/Then Star James Snyder Shares His Theatregoing Experiences
16 Jul 2014
Last, but certainly not least, Matt Walker, Beth Kennedy and Rick Batalla of the Troubador Theatre Company in Comedy of Aerosmith
"This LA theater company, based at Garry Marshall's Falcon Theater, has won nearly every LA theater award possible. The first show I saw was Comedy of Aerosmith; per usual, they take an amazing mix of a classical text (Comedy of Errors) and add a crazy mix of songs from a contemporary music artist (Aerosmith). This show had everything I love about theater, Shakespeare, rock music, tons of comedy, improv, acrobatic movement and a shameless drive to entertain the hell out of an audience. I was fresh out of college, and after seeing the show felt compelled to write the director/star Matt Walker a letter. They, like so many great West Coast acting companies, are proof LA theater is alive, vibrant and relevant."
