LATimes theater critic Charles McNulty suggests in this article that the L.A. theater scene lacks a solid base of visionary directors. He ends the story by listing a few of the city's more well-known and successful directors, but he doesn't mention the director of Walking Into Traffic, Chris Covics, who was recently named one of 10 "Artists to Watch" in L.A. Stage magazine. I think he's doing a lovely job.
