Supervisors Kuehl and Barger are proposing to shift operations of the John Anson Ford Theatres to the L.A. Philharmonic Association, with a starting date of December 1 — meaning the L.A. Phil would be programming the 2020 season. 

Supervisor Kuehl has argued that this will give the Ford Theatres access to more resources and future growth. But some have concerns that this will make the programming at the theater less edgy. 

The L.A. County Board of Supervisors will vote on the motion next Tuesday, November 12.
