Come Early

Pre-Show Events
Oftentimes taking the shape of a moderated conversation, Come Early is your opportunity to engage with some of the leading thinkers, scholars, and artists working in the performance arena today. This series of talks will enliven your viewing experience of the work showcased on the main stage. All Come Early events take place in the New York Live Arts Lobby from 6:30-7:00 PM on the opening night of a performance.

Stay Late

Post-Show Events
Stay Late provides an opportunity for the Live Arts audience to engage more deeply with the artist's work and their creative process. We invite you to Stay Late in the theater and take the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the artists' creative process & vision. This season, we have planned special dance parties and interactive events to add to the fun!
