Tarragon shows are full of big ideas. During the run of each show, Tarragon invites great minds to further our thinking on the show’s subject matter and artistic approaches through pre-show lectures. Lectures take place prior to the matinee performance on Saturdays.
All lectures run approximately 1 hour in length and take place at Tarragon Theatre.
