About Theatre Chevruta
Theatre is an exploration of culture, entertainment, and ideas, shared by the audience and performers. Chevruta is an exploration of the Talmud, shared by two people. Theatre Chevruta, through its productions and supplemental offerings (post-show talkbacks, preview lectures and discussions, etc.), exists to let audience and performers explore important, entertaining, and often unfamiliar offerings of Jewish theatre--Yiddish theatre, Israeli theatre, new works, obscured classics, and more.
What is a staged reading? A staged reading is a fully cast, fully rehearsed presentation of a play with scripts in hand. Particularly popular in the development of new works and the revisiting of obscure works, the absence of lighting, sets, and costumes allows the focus to be on the actors and the words.
