Jane Austen wrote only six novels, but her wit and wisdom left readers pining for more. Impro Theatre’s Jane Austen UnScripted gives audiences a chance to imagine the other books she might have written. Inspired by audience suggestions, Impro Theatre deftly creates a world of love-struck ladies, brooding noblemen and charming cads, and although hearts are sure to be broken, true love will win out in the end. You've seen them in the intimate space of The Edye—now witness the grandeur of Jane Austen come to fully realized life on our Main Stage for a limited run of two performances just in time for the holidays.
Climb aboard a communist-era train from Prague to Belgrade, smuggle KFC out of Egypt, hide away in the wheel well of a transatlantic jet and bolt across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in the dead of night. These are but a few of the border crossings on the itinerary in this dazzling trip around the world with award-winning theatre director, designer and performer Thaddeus Phillips. Using lighting, shadows, humor and his magnetic charm, Phillips weaves a witty, enlightening and surreal examination of imaginary lines, arbitrary passports and curious customs.
Join Red Hen Press and The Broad Stage for an afternoon of unforgettably talented trios. Francesca Bell, Francisco Aragon and Florencia Ramirez are creating new myths across the sky. Florencia writes of water and sustainability, Francisco is haunted by Rubén Darío, who created new forms, and Francesca is pushing back against what we should not write about. This poetry of reshaping is in conversation with the music of Don Davis played by the Debussy Trio. California is a place for reinvention; and in today's program, we will hear the traditional and the risk-taking moving toward each other.
National Geographic photographer and explorer Carlton Ward Jr. travels the world—to the Amazon, Congo, Sahara and beyond—to find and document new species and conservation stories that haven't yet been told.

An eighth-generation Floridian, he is now working to protect a little-known corridor for endangered bears, panthers—even cowboys—hidden in the shadows of the beaches and amusement parks that dominate Florida’s identity.
Additionally, we have several non-interpreted shows for you to consider:
