Hear/Now: LIVE!

Hear/Now: LIVE! reinvents the old-fashioned radio broadcast for the stage, featuring two world premiere plays by Mashuq Mushtaq Deen and Deb Margolin!

Get ready, anything can happen when you’re live.

The Telegram by Mashuq Mushtaq Deen

Augie is the consummate cowboy – she’s hardened, principled, and quick on the draw. But when the Kid tags along, expecting stagecoach races, shootouts, and barrels of whiskey, he finds himself entirely unprepared for the absurd realities of the Wild West. Sort of your traditional radio Western, sort of not.

That Old Perplexity by Deb Margolin

While Manhattan is still reeling from the fall of 2001, Mary and Barbara find themselves in the midst of their own private crises. As their morning commute stalls, the beautiful discord of the recovering city is healed in a tiny way through the women’s sudden intimate connection, the bizarre grace of a vagrant, and the organic ascendance of kindness. A comedy!


Due to breakthrough Covid-19 cases and out of an abundance of caution, performances on 12/18 & 12/19 have been cancelled. Our number one priority is to keep our artists, staff, and audience members safe and healthy.


Hear/Now: LIVE! will run 90 minutes with no intermission.
