The Latiné Musical Theatre Lab to Host Inaugural Table Reading Series

This summer series presents closed industry readings of 11 new musicals written by Latiné writers.

The Latiné Musical Theatre Lab to Host Inaugural Table Reading Series

The Latiné Musical Theatre Lab, an organization that develops and advocates for new Latiné-written works of musical theatre in order to radically change who gets to tell musical stories on stages across the country, is presenting its first ever Table Reading Series.

The only program of its kind, this series presents 11 readings of new musicals and musicals-in-development, but with the specific lens of only featuring shows written by Latiné-identifying writers and writing teams.

By providing a free space for writers to test and refine the current draft of their show, the Lab continues in its commitment to elevating the work of Latiné writers and providing resources to eliminate the gap in opportunity in the theatre industry for Latin creatives.

To learn more about the Latiné Musical Theatre Lab, or to make a donation to support this or other programs for their artists, please click here.

The 11 shows will be presented between June 19th and September 25th. All readings are closed to the public and invite-only.

The Table Reading Series is made possible thanks to a generous donation of space by Jen Waldman Studios. JWS is an acting studio for professional theatre artists. Their approach to actor training employs a healthy balance of contemporary acting techniques, science, impulse training, and a focus on how artists can use their work to make the world a better place.
