This programming is free and open to the public, and can be accessed by visiting Vineyard's Theatre's YouTube page or Facebook page. Recordings of the live shows will also be available on both platforms for later viewing, as well as on The Vineyard's website, www.vineyardtheatre.org.


Upcoming Schedule Tuesdays at 5pm:


April 21 -- Colman Domingo will take us into the process of creating his solo show A Boy and his Soul. He will share his relationship with soul music and the personal experiences that inspired the play and characters. Part personal history, part "process talk" about how to create a show from your personal story, part celebration of soul.

April 28 -- Michael R. Jackson and Lileana Blain-Cruz discuss the process of creating Jackson's new show White Girl In Danger, currently in development at The Vineyard, and share material from the piece.

May 5 -- Tina Satter, director of Is This A Room, and actress Emily Davis join Billie Winner-Davis, Reality Winner's mother, in conversation about the show, and what has happened to Reality Winner since her arrest, including her current clemency petition. Is This A Room was recently nominated for four Lortel Awards including Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Director, and Outstanding Leading Actress.

May 12 -- Judy Kuhn and Mandy Gonzalez revisit the music of Laura Nyro from The Vineyard's Obie Award-winning world-premiere production of Eli's Comin'.

May 19 -- John Kander, Susan Stroman, and David Thompson talk about their decades-long collaboration, from their first show together, the revival of Flora the Red Menace at The Vineyard, through The Scottsboro Boys and The Beast in the Jungle, and how they are working together from home.

May 26 -- Brandon Victor Dixon will share experiences and material from his acclaimed career on stage, including The Scottsboro Boys, and his growing body of work making his own music.

June 2 -- Nicky Silver, the Vineyard's most-produced playwright, in conversation about his work (including such celebrated plays as Pterodactyls, Raised in Captivity, and The Lyons) and his longtime collaboration with the company, joined by special guest artists.

The Vineyard has canceled all remaining performances of Dana H., but plans are underway to bring the show back when the theatre reopens. The world-premiere of Antoinette Nwandu's Tuvalu or, the Saddest Song, has also been canceled, with the intention to program the show in a future season. The Vineyard's upcoming Gala Benefit, which was to take place on April 20, honoring Daryl Roth and Paula Vogel, has also been canceled.
