The 99-Seat Theatre Action Playset depicted action figures from the AEA perspective like the ficticious fat-cat producer who was getting rich staging intimate theatre productions (the vast majority of 99-seat theatre was produced by collective comprised of actors and set up with such a narrow possibility for financial success that most shows lost money). It mentions Charlayne Woodard, a talented actor-playwright who made her name in 99-seat theatre yet inexplicably presented herself in the media as the voice of pro-proposal faction; usually offering wildly inaccurate accounts of the state of Los Angeles intimate theatre. Don Shirley is a former theatre writer for The Los Angeles Times who wrote curmudgeonly, ill-informed articles mocking the Pro99 faction.
