Theater: Davidson’s retirement leads to ‘Lessons’

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/theater_davidsons_retirement_leads_to_lessons_20071116

Gordon Davidson is back where he belongs, in the director's chair. The man whose name is practically synonymous with Los Angeles theater, who raised the city's reputation from a provincial backwater to the breeding ground for innovative and controversial plays, retired in the summer of 2005 as founding artistic director of the Center Theatre Group. Now he has resumed his craft, not at the Mark Taper Forum, the site of many of his triumphs and some failures for 38 seasons, but at the more modest venue of the Strasberg Creative Center's Marilyn Monroe Theatre in West Hollywood.
