Here's what audience members have to say ABOUT OUR STAY LATE AND WEEKEND WORKSHOP PROGRAM

"Cristina [Castro] gave a great presentation on the history of Latinx theater in the US and provided us with some awesome resources so we can get to know Latinx plays, writers, and theaters better...  [We] were able to spend the second half having an intimate and honest conversation about race, identity, and diversity in theatre. I really appreciated the thoughts and work everyone...put forward in the workshop
and am very glad I attended." (Latinx Theater Workshop in conjunction with "Anna in the Tropics")

"Thank you again for providing such a wonderful puppet workshop. My grandson, Eero, carried the Ninja puppet with him wherever he went this past weekend. Everyone was kind, tolerant and so patient with the children. And, for that, I am immensely grateful." (Puppet-making workshop in conjunction with "The Oldest Boy")

"I really appreciate having the actors talk with the audience after. Ron M[enzel, 'Constellations'] was very informative and charming when he joined us, and talking with the cast members after Two Gents also added to the positive experience of that show. 
Thanks for adding that dimension to the performances."

"The post performance discussion was very helpful in appreciating the entirety of the project."

"The pre/post discussions are wonderful!"

"We appreciated the post-performance discussion with Emily Gunyou Halaas ['Le Switch']. Fascinating to
learn about how the author used the Playwrights' Center to craft the play.""
