OUR HISTORY

Established in 1988, Will & Company began with four actors, two swords and the commitment to providing theatre for the people, about the people, with the people. Founder and Artistic Direcctor Colin Cox had limited resources and a strong desire: to make theatre accessible to the common man.  He began with a forty-five minute adaptation of "Romeo & Juliet" which was toured homeless shelters and AIDS hospices. Not long after, The Music Center of Los Angeles took notice of this fledgling company and welcomed them to their to their roster of artists, enabling the company to create more shows and make them available to a larger audience. By 1993, Will & Company had established itself in Los Angeles as a major touring company with a 25 member ensemble, took residence at the Los Angeles Theatre Center and mounted mainstage Equity productions. The company was to stay at LATC for 12 years. In 1996, Will & Company expanded to a national level with the One Person Show "Faces of America" that deals with issues of multiculturalism in America today, and has toured to 49 states. In the following years created more shows to address race relations. In 2007, Will & Company moved residence to The Ricardo Montalban Theatre.
