Noise Now is an opportunity to expand our family by engaging with our neighboring communities and peer organizations. Noise Now is more than an audience development initiative – it is a commitment to being a great neighbor, to building relationships with audiences and artists, and to demonstrating our eagerness to listen well and respond courageously.

Noise Now is an enhanced commitment to being of service to all audiences. We aim to illuminate and activate underrepresented populations, communities of color, young people, and all others not equitably represented at the theatre. In addition, we are activating non-traditional or underutilized spaces throughout the A Noise Within campus. We are excited to challenge ourselves, identify how disruptive we can push to be, and commit to making decisions “with” – as opposed to “for” – our audiences.

By expanding our artistry to include dance, music, art installations, non-traditional theatre and beyond, we are opening our home to audiences new to theatre and new to us, in addition to facilitating work that illuminates overlap between our mission and the missions of our collaborators.

Interview with actors Michael Manuel (Iago) and Tania Verafield (Emilia) about their new production at A Noise Within Shakespeare’s Othello. Feb 10 – April 28, 2019

The Bard’s most intimate of family tragedies about the terrible force of love and the breakdown of a man who has everything—power, position, and passion—only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal, and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay for choosing wrong.

Real Art Daily Productions is a film and theatre production company dedicated to representing the stories of those often neglected by mainstream media.  With a dual focus on both the intersectional representation on queerness, ableism, agism and feminine representation and the role of local community engagement within the arts, Real Art Daily Productions is dedicated to producing both theatre and film that challenges what the viewer deems ‘normal’. Real Art Daily Productions is a diverse company, with employees representing a wide range of sexualities, gender identities, cultures and nationalities. The company’s opening production of Jean-Paul Sartre’s famous existential play, No Exit, will be accompanied by a series of talks around social justice and philosophical topics related to the play’s themes, including queerness and feminism in the 1940s, and reflections of existentialism in today’s social climate. These curated conversations will be led by  local and community subject experts in hopes to engage the local Los Angeles community and illustrate the importance of art in representation and expression.

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors keep the spark of human spirit alive by telling stories around a campfire. As the years wear on, these stories expand into the realm of legend and myth. At turns sidesplitting and bone-chilling, Mr. Burns also features an unusual approach for the Fools: each act will be staged in a different theater space in the Broadwater complex, transporting the audience as we search for the light.
