One Man Talking - New Works Series from Emerging Artists Theatre (EAT)
One Man Talking - New Works Series from Emerging Artists Theatre (EAT)
Scott Klavan, Curator
Scott Raker, Co-Curator

A festival of original, eclectic and engaging one-man shows.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind, once-a-year festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself enthralled by One Woman Standing, perhaps laughing with One Man Talking, maybe even humming along to a few new Notes from a Page. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

TAKE SPECIAL NOTE: Each title in the series has only one performance, one date, one time, so please book carefully. Scroll down and find the show, or shows, of your choosing. And then check the other listings for "One Woman Standing" and "Notes From a Page" and book tickets for those shows as well!
