I have started saying “woohoo!” when a new play drops

LATW really “works”. In the obvious ways such as synergy of a cast, or production. It also works in the manner to which the plays are curated it all “works” together. LATW “works” the notion of what a podcast can be. The vast array of different subject matter could be called “the works”.
These plays often spark my curiosity and I end up deep diving into a subject such as history or science.
They create intellectually satisfying entertainment.
Thank you LATW!

@The Future of Theater

Ideas and productions of this quality don’t just get made from thin air. Support the artists, be a patron, there is so much more meaning behind these productions than your own enjoyment, that is just a coincidental byproduct. That said, these podcasts are an excellent introduction to the rich storytelling in the LA community

The Future of Theatre

So freaking good. I honestly don’t even go to the theatre anymore. This show, Lantern Theatre, American Theatre… All the best theatre is free on Apple Pods.
