TheaterWorks Hartford Producing Artistic Director Rob Ruggiero announced today that their 20/21 season is now on-sale. The new season introduces a flexible membership model and includes shifting from a traditional 5 play season to a Season of 12 plays delivered monthly. Rob said, “We’re super excited about the opportunities this creates and the important voices we can elevate and stories we can share in the coming year”.
“Converting our subscriptions to monthly memberships is something we’ve been interested in for a while. We’re working to make our connection to our audience as agile and frictionless as possible by embracing a no stress / no risk model. We’re trusting that if we deliver artistic quality and important stories that our community will stay with us month to month and hopefully for seasons to come. We believe we can tell stories in a compelling way that maintains connection and elevates hope and humanity.”
TheaterWorks Hartford (TWH) will produce new works, developmental pieces, and fully realized pieces, including THE WHO AND THE WHAT, and a concert version of FUN HOME. New projects by Alani ilongwe, Sarah Gancher, Harrison David Rivers, and James Anthony Tyler are also part of the season. It’s going to be an extraordinary year filled with important voices, laughter, music, and hope.
