In the mid to late 90's the city of Chicago was full of amazing talent, and everyone looking for work in the theatre. On a whim Meredith Anne Patt moved out to Los Angeles with a friend and found herself in the film industry. Within a few years she was quickly drawn back to theatre when word got out that had done Stage Management at school. The Sacred Fools Theater Company and Theatre of NOTE were her two home bases. From there Meredith found herself looking for steady work and became Patron Services or House Manager at Kirk Douglas Theatre, The Los Angeles Theatre Center, Center Theatre Group, Shakespeare LA and now East West Players. Along the way she got married and has an amazing son and adorable puppies. We also talk a little about acceptance in the theatre, Pronoun, and how everything is about growing and learning.
