Join the biggest stars from an abbreviated Broadway season for songs, stories and a special Offstage conversation, exploring what this time of national unrest means for artists and the theater.
Before the curtain rises, be there as Wesley Morris, a Times critic at large, sits down with Broadway stars Adrienne Warren, Daniel J. Watts (“Tina: The Tina Turner Musical”), Celia Rose Gooding (“Jagged Little Pill”) and director Kenny Leon (“A Soldier’s Play”), to hear their perspectives on the global protests shaping the lives of creators and fans alike.
Then look to the stage as Times writers, critics, and editors show us some of their favorite moments from the shortened Broadway season — and the moments they look forward to when the curtain rises again:
Patti LuPone, Katrina Lenk and the cast of “Company,” performing the opening number of the show. Mary-Louise Parker, with a powerful monologue from “The Sound Inside.” A thoughtful conversation with Jeremy O. Harris, writer of “Slave Play.” Elizabeth Stanley, singing a song from “Jagged Little Pill.” And much more.
It’s the first event in our new series, Offstage, exploring the creations and concerns of theater artists during this pause in performances.
