Live Theatre Workshop's thespians and production crew dedicate their theatrical talent to dramatizing plays in an intimate black-box theater. Paula Vogel's 1998 Pulitzer Prize–winning drama How I Learned to Drive centers on a teenage girl stumbling through a dangerous relationship. The show plays out on the Mainstage, a small theater that seats audience members within reach of the actors, intensifying performances and allowing patrons to see performers' faintly visible muses.
Penned by Amy and David Sedaris, The Book of Liz relays the off-kilter adventures of a nun making her way as a waitress in the outside world. The story unfolds via the talents of Etcetera, the late-night branch of Live Theatre Workshop that stages unorthodox productions of original material and updated classics. Like a plate of cheese sticks tossed into a room of toddlers, seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
