Smith Street early Stages

In 2016, Smith Street Stage expanded its season and inaugurated Smith Street Early Stages. Envisioned as a complement to our annual Shakespeare in Carroll Park, the Early Stages series allows the Company the opportunity to explore different texts by a more diverse range of authors. Smith Street Stage also uses Early Stages to pursue more varied and experimental theatrical forms with an expanding number of theater artists who can challenge and expand our mission to find new ways to tell classic stories.
