Episode 2.1 – Tour of the 2019 Hobgoblin Playhouse! | What We Do When We’re Dark

It’s March 2019. That means it’s almost Hollywood Fringe season. Last year, we brought an abandoned theater on Hollywood Blvd. back to life for the month of June and called it The Hobgoblin Playhouse.

This year, we’re back, and we’ve got some new digs! Take a look at the Hobgoblin Playhouse for the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival – The Arena Stage at Theatre of Arts!

WHAT IS THE HOBGOBLIN PLAYHOUSE?
The Hobgoblin Playhouse is a Hollywood Fringe-specific Pop-Up venue. Much like its namesake, it appears from out of nowhere for a short while, long enough to accomplish some mischief, then disappears back into the aether.

Now, Hank (our titular Hobgoblin mascot) has found a new home for the 2019 Hollywood Fringe at The Arena Stage, Theatre of Arts!

This lovely 78-seat venue comes fully equipped and is ready to stage the biggest Fringe shows! Follow The Hobgoblin on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates!

WHAT WE DO WHEN WE’RE DARK
This weekly vlog highlights events and productions happening at the various StageCrafts properties, as well as share some of the fun things the owners do, both theatrical and mundane.

What do we mean by “dark”? Well, the TDF Theatre Dictionary tells us a playhouse (like studio/stage) is “lit” when there’s a show running in it—until the production shutters and the theatre is said to “go dark.” That’s almost never a good thing, at least as far as the building’s landlord is concerned. With luck, it won’t be long until a new show loads in and the theatre is lit again.

For the context of this vlog, “dark” means any time a performance or an event is not actually in progress on our stage, and our goal is to answer the burning question “what happens in The Room Where It Happens when there’s nothing happening?”
