The Arts After the Crisis
APRIL 4, 5:00 PM: A VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION: THE ARTS AFTER THE CRISIS
Our production of The Humans, which has been postponed to the fall, was supposed to open on April 4. Since we can’t do that, let’s talk about what we can do. Join me, Washington Post chief critic Peter Marks, and three other DMV artistic directors: Raymond O. Caldwell (Theater Alliance), Maria Manuela Goyanes (Woolly Mammoth) and Ryan Rilette (Round House) for an online panel discussion about how theaters will change how they tell stories in the aftermath of the crisis. It will stream live on our website, Facebook and YouTube -- comment to ask a question!
The Amateurs on Vimeo
FINAL WEEKEND TO WATCH THE AMATEURS ONLINE.
While we had to cancel remaining performances of The Amateurs, we made a professional recording of the show while we were rehearsing and in previews. And it’s a comedy about actors putting on plays during a plague, so who wouldn’t pay to see that? You can stream it for $20 on Vimeo. It's only available through April 5. Thanks to our colleagues at Actors’ Equity Association and the Society for Directors and Choreographers for making this possible.
