Actor Stuart Margolin (Days of Heaven, “The Rockford Files”) is in town trying to start a new professional theater, modeled after the Tyrone Guthrie in Minneapolis and the Louisville Actor’s Theater. He is currently looking for a medium-sized house (600-900 seats), preferably in the Oak Lawn area, where he and a company of actors, directors, and playwrights could perform new and experimental works not available to Dallas audiences. He already has commitments for new plays from D.L. Coburn (The Gin Game) and Sam Shepard (Angel City, Action), and is confident that if a suitable theater can be found the project will be extremely attractive to established actors who would like to try new roles in a relaxed environment. Margolin hopes to do six to eight plays over a six-month season (January 1-June 30). If all goes well, the first production will be ready in January 1981.
