SpeakEasy Announces Second Installment In Contemporary American Musical Panel

On Sunday, March 10, 2019, following the 3PM matinee performance, SpeakEasy Stage will present a panel of musical theatre experts and practitioners for a closer look at its current production of Once.

This talkback is a part of a new series entitled Celebrating the Contemporary American Musical, which SpeakEasy launched earlier this season as part of its commitment to champion new musicals which explore contemporary social issues, push the boundaries of the form, and challenge the story-telling form.

The goal of the series is to further the audience's appreciation of this unique art form and to understand where each of the musicals in SpeakEasy's season fit in the American Musical Theatre canon.

Veteran Boston arts reporter Terry Byrne returns as host for the second installment of this talkback series, which kicked off in November with a discussion of the company's production of Fun Home.

Joining Ms. Byrne for the discussion of Once will be

-Chris Caggiano, Associate Professor of Theater, Boston Conservatory
-Neil Donahoe, Dean of Theatre, Boston Conservatory
-Laura Marie Duncan, Actress/Associate Professor of Theater, Boston Conservatory
-Kathy St. George, Actress

SpeakEasy's talkback Celebrating the Contemporary American Musical: Once will take place immediately following the 3PM matinee of Once on March 10, 2019 in the Roberts Studio Theatre in the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont St. in Boston's South End.
