The Playgoer: The Pee Wee and Annette Shows:

On the heels of my last post about Center Theatre Group placing its bets on theater companies rather than playwrights for the development of new work, Culture Clash's playwright Richard Montoya wrote me with a very good further distinction, that CTG's commissions of Culture Clash
speculate not so much on his troupe, but on the audiences the troupe might attract. It's an interesting point that ties commissions more closely to marketing than I'd thought of.
