It's called the House that Sam built — as in Sam Shepard. The Magic Theatre isn't just about the actors. The people who write the words those actors say on stage play an important role as well. Because of the theatre's support of writers, nationally recognized playwright Octavio Solis left Texas to come to San Francisco more than 20 years ago to find a home for his writing at the Magic. Artistic Director Loretta Greco, (who is opening next season with Shepard's Pulitzer-Prize winning Buried Child), works to nurture their relationships with writers such as Sharr White, Lloyd Suh, Linda McLean, and Luis Alfaro, the MacArthur-winning playwright, whose adaptations of Greek plays Medea (Bruja) and Oedipus (Oedipus El Rey) premiered at the Magic.
