We are very excited to announce our lineup for our 28th season of Real.Live.Theater!
Since 1991, we have created stimulating and enriching theatrical experiences to expand perspective and inspire human empathy. Our 2019 shows continue in that tradition by focusing on the culturally relevant theme of the roles and struggles of women in society.
Yes, there will be some serious moments and challenging conversations, but there will also be plenty of laughs. The lineup is an eclectic mix of comedies, musicals, and dramas, all featuring complex roles for female actors.
