Break A Leg often includes post-performance talkbacks at our readings and full productions, bringing in playwrights and other theatre professionals, as well as experts from the worlds of science, media and academia who speak to the subject matter of a given play.  This educational component serves to enhance the theatre-going experience and is something our audiences have come to look forward to.  Be sure to join us for these lively discussions.
