Thursday, November 11, 2021 7 Kislev 5782

1:00 PM - 2:00 PMIn-Person and Livestream

Have you ever wondered how a theater selects the plays they produce? How an artistic director chooses directors to direct those plays? And, how an entire season of plays is chosen? Join Theater J’s Artistic Director Adam Immerwahr for an inside look into the art of theater making. Get a behind-the-scenes look at play selection, casting, set and costume design, and more! In addition, hear a preview of the heartwarming play Tuesdays with Morrie, based on the beloved book, to be produced by Theater J in November and December. Join us for this intimate and fascinating talk with Theater J’s dynamic leader.

Theater J is a nationally-renowned, professional theater that celebrates, explores, and struggles with the complexities and nuances of both the Jewish experience and the universal human condition. Their work illuminates and examines: ethical questions of our time, inter-cultural experiences that parallel our own, and the changing landscape of Jewish identities. As the nation’s largest and most prominent Jewish theater, they aim to preserve and expand a rich Jewish theatrical tradition and to create community and commonality through theater-going experiences.

Adam Immerwahr is the fourth Artistic Director in Theater J’s history. He was most recently the Associate Artistic Director at McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, NJ. NYC directing credits include productions at The Public, Theater Row (both for Summer Play Festival), Ensemble Studio Theatre, The Wild Project, and NYU’s Studio Tisch. Adam is the recipient of a 2008 Drama League Directing Fellowship and the 2010 NJ Theatre Alliance “Applause Award.” Adam was the winner of the 2014 Emerging Nonprofit Leader Award presented by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Center for Excellence and the Center for Non-Profits.
