22. Where to perform live and be seen and heard

Los Angeles, sorry to reveal to you stage actors, is not a theater-friendly town.  It’s very challenging to get industry professionals to attend stage shows in Hollywood for many reasons.  However, there are several theaters that have found and earned a dedicated following and are respected as the premier stages for actors to perform.  They usually acquire the most popular Off-Broadway plays and complement other weeknights with humorous, well-reviewed shows.  Where are these theaters?  How do you get cast in their shows?  Is it smart to dedicate so much rehearsal time to a stage show in LA?  How do you convince the people you want to see your work to come?
