Writers' Theatre

Since 1992, intimacy and immersion have been Writers' hallmarks, in two tiny spaces that force audiences into the sets and onto the stages, willing or not. Capturing that intensity in two new, technologically capable rooms of twice the seating capacity is the challenge. In response, the room is kept compact – every inch of space has earned its place; blocks of seating are dislodged from the walls and thrust toward the stage; and each perimeter surface either supports the acoustic experience...or disappears.

Keeping the nearby commuter trains from spoiling the fun is part of the mission, too.
