Hello Intersection Readers,
Company One Theatre recently launched a new website, and with it, a new version of this blog. We’d love for you to come on over and check it out. We’re posting new articles of the week, sneak peeks at C1 business, and weekly link round-ups. The blog is housed in our brand new ENGAGE section — the home of dramaturgy and engagement at Company One. Check out photo galleries and reports on artist visits, pre- and post-show events, interactive lobby displays and more!
Join us at our new home, IN THE INTERSECTION.
