How About a Little Respect?

Grove Theater Center battles for truth, honor and faceless lips

But things are always done a little differently at the GTC. Compare its opening-night parties with those thrown by its professional colleagues. At SCR, it's invite-only, with the audience in black tie and evening gowns. At the Laguna Playhouse, it's a more casual event catered by one of that city's many fine restaurants. At the GTC, it's pizza and Miller Lite. Sure, it's all the theater can afford, but it transforms the necessity of a strict budget into the virtue of variety. And that's what makes this theater so necessary:_it's a professional company that hasn't lost sight of its beginnings and is in no danger of packing it in.
