FUN HOME, THE SOUND INSIDE And More Announced for TheaterWorks 20/21 Season.
TheaterWorks Hartford announced their 2020-2021 Season today. Producing Artistic Director Rob Ruggiero said "I have tried to craft a season that has a balance of heart, humanity and humor. We've brought back two shows we lost in 19/20, two shows that had successful New York engagements and one relatively new play by Matthew Lopez the author of our audience favorite THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA McBRIDE."
Rob continued "In a time with so much uncertainty, we are also looking for new tools that will give us the flexibility to present and produce regardless of how our world changes - including (hopefully) streaming options. We will be together again. Our 20/21 SEASON is our 35th season and we look forward to celebrating it with all of you."
TheaterWorks is working hard to stay connected to audiences and continues to offer free weekly programming including its popular LIVING ROOM music series and GET SAUCED (streaming live on FB and IG). TheaterWorks BOX OFFICE remains open Monday through Friday 10-4.
