Meet the Artists Discussions
During the run of each show we host a series of question and answer sessions with playwrights, directors, actors, designers and Woolly literary/artistic staff. For a main stage production these discussions typically occur after the following performances:
- Various performances during preview week
- The second Wednesday performance
- The second Sunday matinee performance
- The third Thursday performance
- Various performances throughout the regular run of the show
When purchasing a subscription or ordering tickets be sure to check for these special opportunities to meet the artists who bring the artistry of theatre to life.
Additionally, more informal lobby discussions with one or two artists from each production will take place in the Cafritz Lobby with discounted beverages available at Pete & Sarah’s Café. Dates TBA for each production depending on artist availability.
Woolly regularly hosts Meet the Playwright discussions as well, when the playwright’s schedule permits. These usually occur during preview week and are announced on the individual webpage for each production.
"I wanted Woolly to do Dead Man's Cell Phone because it's a quixotic play, and it demands an audience who can go anywhere with relish and with gusto, and I found the audiences at Woolly seemed to crave the unexpected, rather than feeling bruised and thwarted by it. The actors at Woolly live fully in the spontaneous and in the eccentric, and that seemed right for the play."
