StageScene LA Interviews IAMA Co-Founder Wes Whitehead




“Headland will soon be completing her Seven Deadly Plays with the one remaining sin—Pride, something both playwright and performances have every right to be feeling now about their work on and in The Accidental Blonde.” – Steven Stanley @ StageSceneLA

StageScene LA Review: The Accidental Blonde


“Headland’s plays speak directly to this generation of post-college castoffs, to the disparate swaths of those who work as assistants to high-powered moguls, who crash perpetually on couches, who openly despise their
friends for getting married…” – Metromix

REVERB by Leslye Headland

“Headland has written a scary play, and directed it with frightening intensity, more than matched by Whitehead and Stephens.” -Backstage


Assistance in the LA Times

“With its ferocious pacing and intense mood, the show captures the resigned hatefulness of those who define themselves by their masters…” – LA WEEKLY – 2/2/08

“This exceptional cast invest the material with the kind of infectious craft and energy that are fast establishing this young company as a new creative force on the local theater scene.” – LA TIMES – 2/8/08


“Headland has assembled a dynamic cast, and she puts her terrific performers through their paces faultlessly.” – LA TIMES – 2/8/08

“Last night I was privileged to see what has to be some of the best theatre going on in LA right now.” – Tough Egg LA Art Blog 2/3/08

“Under Headland’s direction, the cast of six all do first-rate work…I can’t wait for sins 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7!” – StageScene LA – 1/27/08

“Scathingly funny!” – LA Weekly 2/2/08


“Cinephilia proves to be a satisfying and well-written drama (with laughs) which offers four talented up-and-coming actors the chance to show their stuff.” StageScene LA 12/2/07

“Playwright Leslye Headland has got a lock on the frenetic, distracted, and confused young adult and I would not be surprised if she one day wrote a defining work on the subject.” – NYTHEATER.COM

What the press is saying about IAMA:

BACHELORETTE by Leslye Headland

“If IAMA Theater company continues to do what they do, I think Steppenwolf and its founding members have a new generation to look out for! ” -HotinHollywood.TV

“Yes, the IAMA Group is definitely making a staunch mark on the LA Theater world.” –

“Two of the most provocative new plays I saw last season (Cinephilia, Bachelorette) were World Premieres produced by IAMA Theatre Company, a group of vibrant young actors eager to create new theater in Los Angeles.” – Steven Stanley of StageSceneLA
