This Obie Award-winning series presents staged readings of new and rarely performed classic plays from all eras and cultures. With the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries as the cornerstone of its mission, Red Bull Theater is dedicated to the rediscovery and re-investigation of classics from all eras and cultures, and to the development of new plays of heightened language and classical themes.

Roundabout Theatre Company's Underground Reading Series is a five-night event that includes readings of new works written and directed by emerging artists as well as postshow receptions. This year's series features material by Selina Fillinger, Harrison David Rivers, Korde Arrington Tuttle, Calamity West, and Daniel Zaitchik.
"Feisty," "fiery" women; "smooth," "gangster" men — join CastAndLoose Live! as we take on all the stereotypes facing Latinx actors and characters in film, TV, and theater.
Based on Lynne Marie Rosenberg's Tumblr, CastAndLoose, CastAndLoose Live! features stars of stage and screen reading verbatim from Lynne's collection of offensive, real casting notices, as well as the world premiere of pieces written in response to these breakdowns by playwrights from the Latinx community.
Proceeds from the show will go to the Latinx Theatre Commons. Come laugh at the problem while funding the solution.
Written and hosted by Lynne Marie Rosenberg (High Maintenance), directed by Jenn Haltman (Summertime), and featuring original work by Matt Barbot, Alex Beech, Hilary Bettis, Diana Burbano, Guadalís Del Carmen, Migdalia Cruz, Brian Herrera, Nancy Garcia Loza, Christina Nieves, and more! Featuring (subject to change) Jorge Chacon, Gilbert Cruz, Zabryna Guevara, Annie Henk, Lauren Villegas, and more!
This reading series features three classic absurdist comedies that resonate in the current political environment. Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco, directed here by Srda Vasiljevic (Dust Can't Kill Me), considers the plight of the individual in the face of a brutal popular movement. The Trial, adapted by Steven Berkoff from the novel by Franz Kafka and directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (What We're Up Against), follows the fate of an accused man amid an inhuman bureaucracy and eroding civil rights. Finally, Harold Pinter's The Hothouse explores what happens when the inmates run an asylum.
More than a half century after World War Two, at the desperate urging of a passionate Holocaust survivor, a young investigative reporter finds herself caught in a battle between conflicting accounts of Holocaust experience. The drama unfolds around the central question of who will write our history — those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who seek to distort it.
Multi-Emmy Award winner Ed Asner as well as Tony and Drama Desk Award nominee Johanna Day star in a concert reading of Jeff Cohen's play The Soap Myth. The reading, directed by Pam Berlin, serves as a tribute to International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Sundays@Six is a free reading series focused on works-in-progress. The WorkShop Theater presents sit-down readings of new and revisited scripts by company playwrights and of projects initiated by company artists. Most of the readings are followed by a moderated dramaturgical discussion.
