Actors Co-op is a company of actors that operates two 99-seat, Equity-approved theaters on the campus of Hollywood Presbyterian Church, located under the famed “Hollywood” sign, one block north of Hollywood Boulevard. Founded in 1987 by a dozen actors, this company now has more than 40 members.
The bill of fare here ranges from musicals (Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, Stephen Schwartz’s Godspell) to classics (Shakespeare’s King Lear and Chekhov’s The Seagull) to contemporary dramas and comedies. In 2006, Actors Co-op received the L.A. weekly award for Best Ensemble for its world premiere production of The Nibroc Trilogy.
