Striking Writers Get Free Admission to Roxy Shows
In a show of good will that we don't even think the firefighters got, the world famous Roxy on the Sunset Strip will be opening its doors to the WGA writers throughout the strike, LAist has just learned.
In support of the writer’s strike, The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood is opening its legendary doors to all members of the Writers Guild of America. Simply presenting a membership card will allow all guild members free admittance to the club through the entirety of the strike for any show with tickets currently available.If we were striking writers, we'd check out IMA Robot (with the Airborne Toxic Event) tomorrow night, the Octopus Project on the 10th, omg the B-52s the 16th, and if the strike lasts that long Juliette Lewis and The Licks on December 8.
For availability of tickets, please call:
The Roxy Box Office, 310-278-9457
Nic Adler, Owner of The Roxy Theatre said. “ People forget sometimes that LA is as small as it is big. We are all a family, whether it is rocking a stage or writing a mind-blowing script. Writers, like musicians, are here to entertain the world. We support artists here at The Roxy, that’s what we do.”
