This charming building on the UCSB campus, the Old Little Theater, is where thee production of “Rent” that DD is in took place last weekend. It plays next weekend as well, a benefit for AIDS research and awareness.
The building is, I believe, part of the College of Creative Studies. The theater seats maybe 150 and the stage is tiny. Kudos to the director for creative use of levels and lighting and area in front of the seats. Our matinee was about half full, pretty impressive, considering the mainly college audience. Apparently they had to turn people away on opening night. I hope they have full houses for the rest of their run.
