Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a non-traditional piece that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that has you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
