American Stage Presents our 2020-2021 season: REIMAGINE, a hybrid season of hope, innovation and inspiration, designed to ensure productions will be presented to audiences regardless of ongoing social distancing circumstances.

“Our 2020-2021 Season: REIMAGINE, embraces this time of transition and change in our world and within our art form,” CEO/Producing Artistic Director Stephanie Gularte said, “It was essential that we craft a season that allows us to remain connected to our community at a time when we all deeply need the meaningful human connection that powerful storytelling can provide, while at the same time preparing for ongoing flexibility in an evolving public health landscape.”
