Best Theater for Your Script Reading Los Angeles 2012 

Working Stage Theater

A few doors north of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Working Stage Theater recently was renovated with a Dwell magazine–worthy façade, seating for up to 60, surround sound and soundproofing. It's a bustling, creative environment — the sort of place that people who've never been to Hollywood might imagine exists on every block. For a very reasonable fee, the owners make available the theater space, as well as lighting and taping experts. If you've written a script or play, there's no better way to polish your work than to test it live onstage. And while the space is perfect for play and script readings or personal film screenings, its services go deeper: If the theater-loving owners believe a new play shows promise, they may offer to co-produce — helping shape it and finding the actors, among other things. Thanks to its upgrades, the space also is used for film shoots. 1516 N. Gardner St., W. Hlywd. (323) 521-8600, workingstage.com.
