Saturday Matinee Chats

For each of the six Mainstage shows every season, there is one Saturday matinee performance that is immediately preceded by what we call a pre-show “Sat Mat Chat.” It’s an opportunity for the audience to have a conversation with interesting people connected in some way to the production – and it’s included in the price of your ticket!

Date: November 16
Time: 12:45 p.m.
Location: Shoctor Lobby
