Ken-Matt Martin appointed Artistic Director

Hate crimes against Asian American and Pacific Islanders must stop. The women murdered in Atlanta on March 16 add to over 500 anti-Asian hate crimes committed in the past year. We stand with our colleagues at organizations like Asian Americans Advancing Justice, who offer Bystander Intervention classes to teach strategies to effectively assist during crises without compromising safety.

2020/21 Season Postponed

In response to the covid-19 pandemic, we have postponed the entire 2020/21 Season to protect our artists, staff, and community. We hope to offer many of these productions in the 2021/22 Season, and will share details once confirmed. In the meantime, check out our digital content, including panel discussions, Voices of Tomorrow: Their World on Stage, the First Friday Virtual Open Mic Series, and more!

COVID-19 Resources

The covid-19 pandemic has affected the theater community in ways large and small. For those whose lives have been upended by the pandemic, we have compiled a list of relief funds and resources. This list is not exhaustive, and will be updated frequently until the crisis is past. We hope it can provide a starting place for those most affected.
