What is Live & About?


What is Live & About?

A Journey in Musical Languages across the Spectrum of Music-Theatre

Through Performance & Conversation

Alliance for New Music-Theatre hosts a monthly theatre-going group named Live & About which celebrates the richness and diversity of music-theatre in the greater Washington, DC area. We attend theatre performances together, hold post performance discussions and analysis, and continue the conversation virtually through this site.

We attend theatre performances together as a group, meet directly after each performance and participate in lively inquiry-based conversations that bring in different perspectives that enrich everyone’s experience.

  • A series where people gather to see an eclectic mix of music-theatre forms in a variety of DC’s most exciting venues then participate in lively and informative discussions following every performance to discuss together interpretive issues and other inquiry-generated thoughts about the show and creators.
  • A series where newcomers to DC or the theatre scene get introduced to some of the top shows in town.
  • A series where you get to continue to mull over and share thoughts through discussing and blogging what YOU think about shows instead of being told what to think by people sitting on a stage.
  • Get “in the know,” be entertained, and have your theatrical and musical minds wowed
  • Know that your subscription supports new works, a range of theatres and styles of music-theatre, and some pretty spectacular local artists and will help build an even stronger Washington theatre community.

and blog about your experience.

Please go to our Live & About Blog page and leave your comments for each show you attend.
