|Welcome to our 2017-18 season.
We are living in interesting times.
I find myself asking: what is the role of theatre, right now? To escape into a world of sheer entertainment? Or, to confront and wrestle with the big issues facing us today?
I have the great privilege of putting together a season that I believe is going to embrace us all as we navigate our current, rather tumultuous world.
At Asolo Rep we are offering you a place of powerful, reverberating ideas, laughter, and joy.We are a place of true empathy where we are reminded that there’s so much more that unites us than divides us. You will be challenged, provoked, and thoroughly entertained by what you see at Asolo Rep this season: utterly compelling stories and thrilling productions created by brilliant artists at the top of their game.
Passion, ambition, history, music, politics, identity, family, the future and above all LOVE: that’s what we’re exploring this season at Asolo Rep as we launch our new all-consuming project – STAGING OUR WORLD.
You are already a part of it.
