Go beyond the show and be in the know when you attend Theatre Lawrence. Each episode will feature behind-the-scene information and interviews relating to the show all to equip you to enjoy the production even more. Think of it like attending a personal pre-show talk, only you don’t have to leave your car, or the treadmill, or wherever you are listening. New episodes drop opening week of regular season Theatre Lawrence productions (and for some of our non-season events too!).

Fiddler on the Roof


A musical theatre tradition! This is a tale of Tevye and his family in a changing Russia. The plight of traditional values in the face of changing social mores and ethnic prejudice cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion to touch audiences on a universal level with laughter, sadness and joy.

In this episode we visit with Danny Rogovein, assistant director for the production and TL's assistant technical director.

I Hate Hamlet


A young and successful television actor relocates to New York where he is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage. The problem: He Hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and the apartment. 

In this episode we visit with actors Brandon Stevens and Jim Tuchscherer who play Andrew Rally and John Barrymore in the show...

A Murder is Announced


An announcement in the local paper states the time and place of an imminent murder.  When an unknown visitor to Miss Blacklock’s Victorian home dies under the prescribed circumstances, Miss Marple turns up to solve the case in a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, twists and turns. In this episode we talk with the show's director Jessica Franz-Martin about the fun and challenges of directing a Christie mystery.
