Founded in 1959, Company of Angels, now known simply as CoA provides a space for actors and other theater artists to work at their craft free of commercial constraints. The original company, incorporated by entertainment attorney Bertram Fields, included actors Richard Chamberlain, Leonard Nimoy, Vic Morrow and Vic Tayback. Company of Angels is the oldest not-for-profit repertory theater in Los Angeles.[citation needed] Along the way the company has received almost every Los Angeles theatrical award, including the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama-Logue Award, the LA Weekly Theater Award, and the Ovation Award.[citation needed] During this time the company has been sustained solely by its membership.

Location[edit]

The very first theatre of the Company of Angels was located on Vine Street and Waring Avenue in the heart of Hollywood (Los Angeles, California). However, on April 27, 1988, fire destroyed that building. In 1989, the Company relocated to the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, at 2106 Hyperion Avenue, today's Lyric Hyperion Theater Cafe. Seventeen years later, the Company left Silver Lake for the re-developing downtown Los Angeles area. After a brief stint at The Grand Avenue Club, Company of Angels now resides in the historic Alexandria Hotel at 501 S. Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles above Palm Court (Alexandria Hotel)
