Coin to support New Play Production Program
Center Theater Group in L.A. has been awarded $1 million from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the expansion of the org’s New Play Production Program.Grant will go toward commissioning, developing and programming non-text-based work, while also emphasizing the support of shows from L.A.-based creatives. Coin will contribute to funding three large-scale commissions for new non-text-based shows, as well as to the completion of projects already begun. News comes on the heels of an announcement earlier this week that the Mellon Foundation has doled out $1.1 million to another development initiative for new stage work, the American Voices New Play Institute at D.C.’s Arena Stage.
