Alliance for New Music-Theatre

2023 Fall Season of Live & About – 13th Season

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

Through Performance & Conversation


Live & About  - Fall 2023 Season


Alliance for New Music-Theatre had a very successful Spring 2023 Season for our “Live & About” series and we have put together another eclectic program for the Fall 2023 Season with Outings to four different productions in the DC area. As in past years we plan to do midweek evening shows and weekend matinees for each Outing.

“Live & About” is an outreach and community engagement series representing different Washington, DC theatre companies and shows across the spectrum of music-theatre. Participants will enjoy the experience of attending performances as a group, expanding their appetites and critical appreciation for new forms, and supporting a variety of large and smaller music-theatre companies in our nation’s capital. After each show, they will have the opportunity to deepen their experience by engaging with other group members in an informal gathering and discussion to understand the deeper intentions of the show’s creators.

We have arranged the Fall 2023 Season on a subscription basis with our group discounts. If interested in subscribing to the series, please contact us directly to arrange payment and determine which performance you plan to attend for each Outing.

I hope you will join us for this new season.
