As a rise in digital theatre intersects with a contentious presidential election year, the Lover & Lunatics audience will be called upon to vote and serve us in our creative journey. In an episodic, Shakespearean “choose your own adventure,” the audience members will become active participants - voting on design and directorial choices to illustrate the power of our collective voice.

The UAlbany Theatre Program productions serve as learning labs for our students. Due to COVID-19, the Theatre Program's fall productions (and possibly spring productions) will be online, virtual performances, provided free of charge. This means the program will not have any box office income this year, which normally helps cover a large part of our production costs. Please consider making a gift to the program.
