Synopsis

With live theater on a hiatus, we asked some of the Long Beach Playhouse directors who were going to be directing shows this year to get back in the game and direct their favorite scenes from the public domain.  They choose the scenes, they choose the actors, and we are now happy to showcase their work. As the Director’s Choice Festival goes on, we hope to add scenes from further Playhouse directors.

This is a free online event, but we do appreciate any donation may want to make to help us thrive in this time when we can’t do live theater!  To Donate any amount, visit the link below:
