AEA Executive Director, Mary McColl, is beginning to put Orwell to shame. At the Special Membership meeting last month, pretty much the entire gathering groaned in unison when - after being asked by a member what evidence she had to support the assertion that imposing minimum wage on its LA Membership would in turn create more opportunities [...]

"Many members told us they think of 99-seat productions as their 'gym'-a valuable space to strengthen their artistic muscles, hone their craft and take on roles they might not otherwise have the chance to play," Mary McColl, executive director of Equity, said in an email to members.

MARY MCCOLL (Executive Director Actors' Equity Association, former Exec Director of the Cowles Center, Director of Labor Relations at the Broadway League) Ms. McColl oversees the collective bargaining process for more than 30 national and regional contracts and supervises Equity's nationally based professional staff. She will work closely with Equity's Council, the Union's governing body, to develop and implement national policy, establish goals and work with the staff to carry out Equity's strategic plan. She will be the Union's representative and lead spokesperson with the media, labor, bargaining partners and government officials.
At the Cowles Center, she oversaw the renaming of the organization and the creation of a new branding and identity campaign as well as initiated improvements to the new theater's production spaces. She was the VP of Operations for the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and began her career at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Minneapolis, where she held several positions including five years as the Vice President and General Manager.

"Many of the same names are saying the same thing that we heard from them back in the late '80s, when Equity said you have to pay the actors a $5 stipend," Mary McColl, Actors' Equity Association's executive director, told Backstage.
Still, McColl said that a "silent majority" support the union's proposal to create a new 99-seat plan, which will be voted on by L.A. County members starting in March; they're just "afraid" to openly support it.
Equity recently held a town hall meeting at its North Hollywood offices but only some 300 members attended. Still, others have expressed their support for the proposal through emails, calls, and social media, said McColl.
"It's difficult for them to get up and speak in front of people who may employ them if they feel they might not get employed if they speak the alternate view from what the producers feel," she said.
After brushing aside concern of a legal challenge, McColl said the union is prepared to accept that some small theaters will shutter and that nonunion talent will fill certain roles.
"This is the beginning of a long-term organizing plan," she said, "so that five years from now, the intimate theater community will look different than it looks now."
McColl envisions L.A.'s theater community beginning to resemble that of Minneapolis or Chicago.
