We know you come to Long Wharf Theatre to enjoy the Tony-Award winning productions on our stage, but we also know that the true benefits of theatre do not rise and fall with the house lights.
Long Wharf Theatre audiences are provided with a variety of enrichment opportunities, but none more fulfilling than the act of engaging with others before or after the show.
You can discuss thought-provoking aspects of each production through open dialog with fellow audience members and theatre artists. Theatre awakens us to seek new ideas and motivate change.
