About the Lab Theater

The Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company grew out of a feeling that the time had come for the Stella Adler Studio of Acting to produce, or reproduce, its spirit, voice and theatrical sensibilities on a professional level.

The mission of the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company it to provide the community, through theater and discussion, with a place of exploration and experimentation of what it means be a human being.

Questions regarding the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theatre Company in Los Angeles can be directed to Johnny Yoder, Producer for West Coast Productions at 323-601-5310.
