Happy New Year, everyone! We hope your 2024’s off to a great start.
This Week @ The StageCrafts, our spaces are already jumping with rehearsals and workshops booked across all of our rooms every night this week as people prepare their first productions and events of the new year.
Speaking of our rooms, I took advantage of the period of calm between Christmas and New Years’ and re-did our venue pages for studio/stage, Howard Fine Acting Studio, and The Madnani Theater! Take a look at each of the new pages for in-depth profiles on each of the spaces, and use the individual contact forms on each page to book your upcoming event in our spaces today.
Got your tix to see Prince Harry LIVE! At Coachella yet?
One of our first productions for 2024 is the return of Prince Harry: LIVE! At Coachella, perhaps the sleeper hit musical of the 2023 Hollywood Fringe Festival!
Prince Harry: Live! At Coachella is an original, one-person musical exploration of the mind of Prince Harry, still fifth-in-line to the British throne. After he moved to California, he filmed an interview with Oprah and had a Netflix docuseries. What’s next, you might ask? He’s a pop star, duh! He’s at Coachella and he’s musicalized key moments from his best-selling memoir Spare. After years of having to let others write the soundtrack to his life, he’s pushing back and taking reign. By airing out his family drama through catchy pop tunes, can he break free from the endless traditions he’s been tethered to and become the person he’s always meant to be? Come and find out!
Prince Harry will be back for two nights only, January 27th and 28th, so grab your tickets now!

The Matrix Theatre and The Henry Murry Stage at The Matrix are 2024 Hollywood Fringe Festival Venues
The Matrix is a legendary space in Los Angeles theatre history and has been the home of many famous productions over its 54 years of operation. Located on Melrose Ave, it is walking distance to numerous bars, restaurants and a Starbucks, and is surrounded by ample street parking. Currently, the Matrix is the home of Rogue Machine, one of the top theatre companies in LA.
Since beginning its residency, Rogue Machine has added a second smaller performance space upstairs, The Henry Murray Stage, which is also available to book for Fringe.
The Main Stage will have limited availability this year due to a large production running May-June, but the space will be available to Fringe productions on dark nights. The Main Stage is a 90-seat proscenium theater with a generous thrust (stage is 22’ deep x 34 1/2’ wide), perfect for larger-scale productions such as musicals and large-cast plays, and it is equipped with a number of high-end LED lighting fixtures, a HD projector, and a booming sound system.
The Henry Murray Stage is a wonderfully unique and intimate playing space (the whole room is 25′ × 15′) which can accommodate an audience of up to 30. Seating is spread throughout the space, creating a playing area that truly immerses the audience in the action. Perfect for solo shows, two-handers and small cast shows that really want their audiences to feel like they’re inside the reality of the show. Seating can be reconfigured for more presentational-style events, such as close-up magic or comedy shows.
Please note that The Henry Murray Stage is only accessible via stairs.
