Working alone onstage brings its own challenges, and its own rewards. Please join us for an evening dedicated to revealing the process of working as a solo artist. We will revisit excerpts from solo plays which were developed at The Actors Studio, and then we’ll hear from the artists themselves —as they discuss the process, and how the Studio influenced their journeys. To reserve you seats for this event, visit TheActorsStudio.org/75GoingSolo.
