I don’t like small plays. The economics of making theater in America force playwrights to create smaller and smaller stories to appeal to companies consistently strapped for cash. And the end result is often a kind of sit-com theater that would be more at home on the television screen.
The classics of the theater sprawled across the stage, creating worlds of imagination with huge casts and enormous theatricality. Of course few theaters can afford the kind of cast sizes of Shakespeare or the golden age of Broadway.
Fresh off our Lucky 13th Season, Triad Stage is thrilled with the future’s possibilities. We have never been the kind of people to settle for the way things are, so we’re taking bigger chances, making better theater and daring aspirationally to bring together great stories, bold design and world-class acting with ten plays, two cities, and one Triad Stage.
The journey from our very first opening night to the beginning of our teenage years today has been an incredible adventure. Triad Stage plays a starring role in revitalizing our historic city centers, creating jobs and bringing artists and audiences to Greensboro and Winston-Salem to witness firsthand the Triad we are proud to call home.
