For our sixth season in 2017, we took a chance on two unusual contemporary plays by living American playwrights and the response was amazing: capacity houses, new audience members, and rave reviews!
"LRT's Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker, directed by Christopher McCann is a sonnet for the heart".
Adam & Evie, by Charles Mee, directed by Randolyn Zinn. "Intimate, dreamy, hilarious, sensual."
LRT presents new and classic plays, driven by innovative direction, canny design and great acting. Audiences share in a unique theatrical intimacy that draws each observer into a more personal relationship with the play.
Our production of MEN OF TORTUGA transferred to NYC for an off-Broadway run in 2016 and was nominated for Outstanding Ensemble by the Innovative Theatre Awards
"Under Randolyn Zinn's fine tuned direction, the five cast members do a beautiful job of balancing the twin foci of the alarming nature of the murderous plot and their increasingly farcical behavior."

Christopher McCann in Exit the King
From our audience:
"Spirited, adventurous, joyful and serious. Zinn and her entire team have done wonders. How we love them!"
-- Willard Boepple
"This year's production of Exit The King was simply magical. The hallucinogenic scene-scape that Zinn and her team created will stay with us for a long time. Get thee to North Bennington! It is well worth the journey.
–- Brett Aresco & Briana Pozner
Tom Coiner & Lizzie King-Hall in Strindberg's Playing With Fire.
"I suspect that what Living Room Theatre is doing is akin to what the Williamstown Theatre Festival must have been like in its early years."
-– Jonathan Marballi
