The Lab provides playwrights with “stellar casts to breathe life into their words so they can hear what’s working and what isn’t, and offers them something totally unique to Boulder — the audiences here,” she adds. “We’ve found that Boulder audiences are ideal for new-play development: They’re intelligent and curious, and genuinely interested in helping playwrights grow their plays. We ask our playwrights to come to the Lab with specific questions for the audience; when they leave, they head back into the writing process better prepared to problem-solve. “But we’re also gathered to have fun,” she adds. “We take our parties very seriously.”
The launch party begins tonight at 5:30 p.m. at Todd Reed, 2015 Pearl Street. There will be music, wine, beer, and food from Hapa Sushi. Passes for the weekend are $65 in advance, $70 at the door, and $36 for students. Call 303-443-8696 or go to localtheatercom-pany.org for information.
