Keeping Live Theatre Alive!

Don’t miss the star studded virtual event on August 29 at 7:00 PM that will feature six well-known actors reading their own original stories and works featured in short videos. Included in the first online event will be, Kim Brockington, Jodi Long, Joe Mantegna, Alfred Molina, James Pickens Jr, and Tony Shalhoub.

The project is the brainchild of actor Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years, Lombardi), who called upon friends in the industry to create videos of themselves reading works they’ve written under the banner “Keeping Live Theatre Alive.” Lauria is a longstanding supporter of local theater and of the alliance members. “Every sector in society has been impacted negatively by COVID-19, including theaters,” Lauria said. “I wanted to raise awareness of the plight of these organizations while celebrating how actors are keeping their creative juices flowing.”

Seven Angels Theatre is part of the #theatre5alliance, a group that was recently formed to promote live theatre during the Covid-19 pandemic to keep it thriving. The alliance is comprised of the Berkshire Playwrights Lab, Durango PlayFest, the Laguna Playhouse, the New Jersey Repertory Company and Seven Angels Theatre.
