Post-Show Discussions

Following selected performances of Segerstrom and Argyros productions, a literary staff member​ moderates informal question-and-answer sessions with actors from the cast. This unique opportunity to access firsthand information about the ​play from the actor's perspective—and to give them your immediate feedback—is guaranteed to enhance the theatre-going experience. Post-Show Discussions begin approximately five minutes after the end of the performance and typically last 20-30 minutes.
