Show Talk presentations take patrons deeper into the world of musical theater and our productions. 

These engaging lectures and panels are hosted by Artistic Associate, Albert Evans with the occasional special guest. Show Talks are 45-minutues long and are free and open to the public (no show tickets required). 

For Come From Away, Albert presents: “Real-Life Musicals”

Come From Away is based on interviews with the people of Gander, Newfoundland, who opened their hearts and homes to 7,000 travelers who found themselves stranded when their planes were diverted as US airspace was shut down following the tragic events of 9/11.

Join Show Talks host Albert Evans as he explores the fascinating creation of Come From Away and other non-fiction musicals that have brought the stories of real folks to the stage — shows like A Chorus Line, Working, and The Me Nobody Knows.
