Grafton Doyle is a Co-Founder and the Executive Producer of Pop-Up Theatre LA, a company that brings immersive and interactive performances right to the audience. Combining the intimacy of film through with the power of live performance, Grafton and a fellow group of thespians set out to establish the pop-up theatre in 2013 after realizing that unconventional theater in Los Angeles needed more attention.
The three friends — Grafton Doyle, Daniel Korth, and Shoshanna Chagall — shared a similar passion for theater and had aspirations to share it with a wider audience. They realized that there was enormous potential for an intimate theater experience after organizing a living room performance that was an absolute hit. Grafton Doyle and the team quickly set out to build a business model that would bring similar performances to people all over Los Angeles.
The beauty of Pop-Up Theatre LA is that it can literally “pop up” anywhere in town. Where and when you will see the next show is completely up to you. All you need to do is pick a play from the repertoire, and the team will bring a quality production and cater it to your audience and space. The concept was inspired by the intimacy of yesteryears salon-style theater and theater in the round.
PopUp Theatre LA has created a formula that can transport a wonderful selection of plays to any location that you request, from hotels to museums to mansions. If you are interested in learning more or want to join the movement that allows theatre to thrive, please check out the company website.
