The staff of LA STAGE Alliance wishes to send a message of congratulations to Diane Rodriguez, who has been selected by President Obama to join the National Council on the Arts, the body that advises the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.
From the LA Times,
“Rodriguez serves as associate artistic director at CTG and has worked at the theater company since 1995. Her previous roles at CTG include associate producer and director of new play development, as well as director and resident artist of the Latino Theatre Initiative.
In addition to her role at CTG, Rodriguez serves as the board president of Theatre Communications Group in New York. She has also worked with smaller theater companies around L.A. and is an award-winning stage actress.”
We’re thrilled that the President has chosen from within the LA theatre community, and we wish Diane the best of luck with her new position!
