Quick Start

Quick Start, a free, behind-the-scenes podcast available on The Rep’s website, is available the Tuesday after Opening Night of each Mainstage production. The podcast will feature an actor from the company giving patrons an introduction into the world of the play. Topics covered may include characters, themes and issues of the play, historical background as well as unique technical values.

Look for the first Quick Start podcast in September 2017, featuring a cast member from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
